What is Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence, also referred to as clinical negligence, occurs when healthcare professionals cause physical or mental harm through the care they provide. Doctors, surgeons, and nurses have a duty of care to their patients, obligated to provide treatment in compliance with the guidelines outlined in the “Good Medical Practice” by the General Medical Council (GMC).

“Good medical practice” requires providing care on par with a competent and qualified healthcare professional, possessing similar background and expertise, under similar circumstances of alleged medical negligence.

Surgical Errors & Medical Accidents

Despite the UK’s commendable standards of medical care, there is still a possibility of complications in routine operations and procedures. Such errors can have long-lasting impacts on the individuals involved.

It’s important to note that surgical errors encompass more than just mistakes during surgery. For instance, improper administration of anaesthesia can result in significant pain and distress throughout the procedure.

Moreover, if you are not adequately informed about all the associated risks of a proposed procedure, this lack of knowledge could significantly influence your decision to proceed.

To ensure the highest quality of care and minimize potential risks or negative outcomes, utmost diligence and comprehensive communication are essential. Let’s prioritize patient safety and effective healthcare delivery.

Misdiagnosis

The incorrect diagnosis of a disease or a condition can have serious repercussions.

If a healthcare provider wrongly assesses your health as good, despite the presence of an underlying condition, it can lead to detrimental consequences. In cases where a disease or ailment goes unnoticed by them, contributing to the deterioration of your health, you may have grounds to pursue a misdiagnosis claim.

Alternatively, you could be examined and then diagnosed with the wrong ailment. If you then go on to receive incorrect treatment, this could potentially aggravate the ailment you do have.

Conversely, it is possible to be in good health while being erroneously diagnosed with a disease or condition that does not truly afflict you. Such an inaccurate diagnosis can inflict unwarranted anguish upon both you and your dear ones. For instance, being misdiagnosed with cancer can be deeply distressing. In such cases, you may have a potential basis for seeking compensation, owing to the emotional harm endured.

Delayed Diagnosis

The consequences of a delayed diagnosis can be equally as detrimental as a misdiagnosis. In the majority of cases, early identification of your condition leads to more favourable outcomes. Most health issues are more manageable in their initial stages.

For diseases and conditions that can lead to terminal illness, late diagnoses can have fatal implications.

Poor Hygiene

When hygiene standards are not upheld in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, the likelihood of infection becomes much greater and can cause your existing medical condition to worsen. If you have already received treatment or undergone an operation, an infection caused by poor hygiene could massively impede your recovery.

Defective Medical Device

A ‘medical device’ is any product, equipment, or implant used for a medical purpose in your treatment. When these products fail, the results can be life-threatening.  Strict testing standards are in place, but faults and defects do still occur.

Faults can arise in the design, manufacture, or application of a device, leading to claims against the party responsible for negligence. If you have experienced ineffective medical equipment, resulting in failed treatment, additional health problems, or prolonged suffering, you may be eligible for compensation.

Birth Injury

When the intricate process of childbirth necessitates medical assistance, we entrust our well-being to the capable hands of healthcare professionals. However, if errors occur, the repercussions can be devastating. If you believe that injuries were sustained by the mother or child during birth due to medical negligence, our Telford based medical negligence solicitors are ready to provide assistance and support.

Similar to any medical procedure, errors in cosmetic surgery can result in substantial health issues for patients, such as enduring pain and lasting damage. Furthermore, individuals may face the additional burden of incurring treatment expenses to rectify these errors.

Dental Negligence

Dental negligence encompasses situations where a dentist inflicts unnecessary pain or causes lasting harm due to mistakes or poor decisions. Additionally, if a dentist performs an incorrect procedure without fully explaining the associated health risks, this can also be considered negligent behaviour.

Cases involving dental negligence are complex and establishing fault can be challenging. Before pursuing legal action, it is advisable to seek guidance from a seasoned solicitor who can provide expert advice on the best course of action.
