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

Even with the UK’s exceptional medical care, the potential for complications exists in routine operations and procedures. The repercussions of such errors can profoundly impact individuals for a lifetime.

Mid-operation mistakes are not the only kind of failures that fall into the category of surgical errors. If your anaesthetic is not carried out properly, this could cause you unnecessary pain and distress during the operation itself.

Insufficient information about the potential risks of a suggested procedure may impact your decision regarding whether to proceed with it. It is crucial to be fully informed before making a choice.

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

Late diagnosis can be equally detrimental as misdiagnosis. In the majority of cases, the earlier your condition is identified, the more favorable the outcome. Most health issues are more manageable during their initial stages. However, in the case of diseases and conditions that can result in terminal illness, delayed diagnoses may have fatal consequences.

Poor Hygiene

When hygiene standards are not upheld in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, the risk of infection significantly increases, which can exacerbate your existing medical condition. If you have already received treatment or undergone surgery, an infection resulting from poor hygiene could heavily impede your recovery process.

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 the device, giving rise to claims against the negligent party in accordance with the circumstances. If the use of defective medical equipment has resulted in inadequate treatment, additional health problems, or increased pain and suffering, you may be eligible to seek compensation.

Birth Injury

When the complex process of childbirth requires medical intervention, we rely on the expertise of healthcare professionals to ensure our well-being. Unfortunately, if errors occur, the consequences can be severe.

Cosmetic Surgery Negligence

With the growing prevalence of cosmetic surgery, unfortunately, there has also been a rise in incidents of substandard practice, leading to complications. Similar to all medical procedures, errors in cosmetic surgery can have profound health implications for patients, resulting in enduring pain and lasting damage. Additionally, patients may have to shoulder the financial burden of further treatment expenses to rectify the errors that were made.

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.

Diabetes Negligence

If you believe that you or a loved one have suffered preventable diabetic complications due to inadequate care, we encourage you to get in touch with our team to discuss your circumstances with one of our experienced solicitors. After an initial consultation at no cost to you, we will evaluate whether you have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation.

Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are chronic conditions that necessitate diligent management in order to prevent potentially severe complications. These complications can have a significant impact on quality of life and, in severe cases, may present life-threatening risks. Instances of medical negligence in diabetes treatment can lead to devastating consequences. Examples of such negligence include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, substandard care and management, and inadequate community support. Improving the quality of healthcare and support for individuals with diabetes is crucial for ensuring their well-being.
