Medical Negligence Claims
If you have been in care at the hands of a medical professional and you feel that they have failed to provide proper care and treatment resulting in further injury, illness or disease. You may have a legal entitlement to make a medical negligence compensation claim for injuries suffered through medical negligence.
What Is A Medical Negligence Claim?
Medical Negligence claims differ from personal injury claims as they can be more difficult to prove. In these cases, we must be able to prove that the healthcare professional has failed in their duty of care towards the patient and has not acted responsibly and provided the correct treatment or advice.
We must also prove that the failure of providing treatment and/or advice has caused the patient to suffer from an illness, disease, or harm which may have otherwise been avoided.
