Clinical Negligence

Clinical Negligence

Medical professionals are in a position of trust; but sometimes mistakes happen that directly impact our health; leading to complications, longer recovery times, pain and suffering. If duty of care has been breached or failed, you may be entitled to compensation that can help you on your road to recovery.

Examples of clinical negligence

  • Poor or incorrect medical advice
  • Misdiagnosed injuries or illnesses
  • You are injured whilst in hospital
  • Delayed diagnosis causing further injury, illness or even death
  • Pregnancy or birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Prescription errors

Case study

Harry was going down some stairs when he fell, going through a plate glass window. He had injuries to his ankle and went to the hospital. The staff noted he had an injury to his Achilles tendon, but missed that it was ruptured. The pain continued and after three months the injury was properly diagnosed but Harry didn’t have surgery to fix the tendon for another six months.

Because of his ruptured tendon, Harry wasn’t steady on his feet and couldn’t climb his stairs at home. A chemical toilet was installed downstairs and a lift was needed to get him up the stairs to his bedroom. The increased damage to his heel and the injury being missed lead us to pursue a claim against the hospital for clinical negligence. Medical evidence was obtained and supported Harry’s claim, leading to a settlement of £30,000.
