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 medical 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

Sandra was admitted to hospital on a bank holiday weekend after suffering a pins and needles feeling in her left foot, causing severe pain in her foot and calf. The hospital suspected that she was suffering from deep vein thrombosis (a type of blood clot,) but unfortunately, the diagnosis was incorrect and the hospital failed to treat what was actually wrong. Her correct diagnosis was arterial ischaemia; a very serious condition but because the hospital failed to diagnose and classify it as an emergency they did not begin proper investigations until after the weekend. Sandra underwent surgery but as a consequence of the delay her left leg could not be saved and was amputated below the knee.

Simon brought a claim on Sandra’s behalf. The hospital argued that, even if there had been negligence or delay, the amputation would still have been inevitable. However the medical evidence obtained supported Sandra’s case leading to a settlement of £460,000.
