Any time you visit a medical professional you are at risk of suffering medical negligence. Whether you visit a doctor on a regular basis or hardly ever, you are still at risk of being subject to injury caused by the negligence of your doctor or nurse.
Medical professionals owe their patients a duty of care and if you have suffered any injury due to negligence, you may be eligible to make a claim. Medical negligence claims can be made against doctors, surgeons, nurses and dentists; anyone who works as a medical professional has the ability to act negligently.
Though most medical care is successful, occasionally problems can arise due to the negligence of a medical professional and this can cause pain, suffering and even financial loss.
Medical negligence is said to be any behaviour that falls below the standard expected of a professional in that job and any behaviour that does not meet the duty of care. There are a wide range of reasons as to why you may want to claim for medical negligence and these include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, negligence and birth injury.
In cases of medical negligence or carelessness you are entitled to claim for compensation. Compensation can be awarded to cover personal injury, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages from time away from work and other financial damages.
