If you have suffered illness, an injury or any form of discomfort following negligent clinical treatment then you may be able to make a clinical negligence claim with the help of Vincents Solicitors.
There is a very fine line between Medical negligence and Clinical negligence. The difference is that Clinical negligence is usually when a medical practitioner has made an avoidable mistake during your treatment, whereas Medical negligence is when the standards of health care that you are entitled to falls below what is expected. Medical negligence cases are usually much longer and harder to prove. That's where our expert knowledge comes in, call us today and speak to one of our specialist solicitors who will look after your case throughout the whole process, 0800 310 2222.
In essence, Clinical negligence describes a medical accident where a patient has been harmed, not because of a complication which couldn't be avoided, but because a health care professional did not give the proper standard of care.
Some examples of Clinical negligence include;
- Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer
- Negligently performed surgery - including general, orthopaedic, spinal, vascular, cardiac and ear surgeries.
- Brain Injury
- Spinal Injury
- Misdiagnosis of infection
- Administration of the wrong prescription
- Negligent dental treatment
- Failures in vascular treatment
- Gynaecological and Obstetric injuries
- Cerebral palsy and birth injury cases
Clinical negligence also covers the results of medical practitioners not doing something that needed to be done, for instance not giving a treatment, not getting consent to treatment, or not warning about the risks of a particular type of treatment.
If you believe that you are a victim of Clinical negligence then Vincents Solicitors can help you to make a claim.
How do I make a Clinical Negligence compensation claim?
Clinical negligence claims are often complex cases and for you to be successful in your legal claim there are two strands of the case, negligence and causation. Negligence is showing that the standard of care was not good enough and causation is proving that the negligence actually caused the injury. Detailed medical evidence will be called on with specialists arguing for each side so as much evidence as possible is vital.
You must succeed in both parts as it is not enough that you succeed in proving that someone did something wrong when treating you, you must also prove you suffered an injury as a result of that incident.
Clinical negligence is a highly specialist area so we make sure that our solicitors have specific experience in this field in order to equal the clinical practitioner experts.
