A medical negligence claim generally arises where there has been substandard care by a medical professional.

This could be from a GP, dentist, hospital doctor or even a medical professional you have seen at a private consultation.

Common types of medical negligence claims include:

Misdiagnosis/Delay in Diagnosis

This is where there has been a failure to diagnose an illness or where you are diagnosed incorrectly. This includes delays in diagnosis of cancer and treatment and failure or delay in diagnosing a fracture or broken bone. It could also relate to serious problems such as the failure to quickly diagnose cauda equina syndrome or as a result of delay in diagnosing other serious conditions where you have attended the Accident and Emergency department.

Incorrect Medication & Treatment

This is where you are given prescribed or dispensed mediation which is unsuitable for you or an incorrect dosage is given. This can result in pain and suffering and in the worst cases, death.

Brain Injury

This is where you suffer damage to your brain as a result of improper medical care. It could be as a result of overdoses from pain medication, failure to diagnose strokes or a brain hemorrhage.

This is where you have suffered as a result of inadequate anaesthetic being provided when you undergo a surgical procedure, for example where you wake up during surgery.

Dental Negligence

This can include incorrect orthodontic treatment (particularly where there is a pre-existing periodontal issues), failures in performing dental surgery and procedures and failures to diagnose and treat dental conditions.
