Making a clinical negligence claim

private treatment for medical negligence

As patients, we trust our doctors to do their utmost to improve our health and ensure our safety. In some cases, there can be no way for our doctors to help us, but valid concerns may be raised in cases where doctors have breached the duty owed to their patients. If you have been adversely affected by a doctor’s negligence, you may be able to make a clinical negligence claim.

For the most part, medical practitioners diagnose and treat conditions efficiently and effectively, but a breakdown in the service they provide can cause serious harm to patients. No one deserves to suffer at the hands of a doctor they trusted, which is why those affected can be eligible to claim compensation for any negative impact on their health and wellbeing.

Due to the complex nature of medical science and the law, clinical negligence cases can be highly complex in nature, with both medical experts and lawyers having to assess and weigh in on the causes of the patient’s condition. Our expert team has years of experience in this multi-faceted area of law, enabling us to offer bespoke advice and expert representation to our clients.

Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist investigation

hernia mesh claims

Following the initial allegations of alleged malpractice against former consultant Daniel Hay, the Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist investigation went on to inform more women of their potential involvement in the ongoing review of his patients. To date, the doctor has reportedly been found to have “unnecessarily harmed” 8 women who had undergone significant surgery under his care.

Further developments emerged toward the end of 2020 that reportedly pushed up the total to 382 of the gynaecologist’s former patients being implicated in the investigation. It is understood that the majority of these women reportedly have no need to worry about immediate health concerns, according to the trust. However, given the length of his service at the hospital, we would not be surprised if the investigation further widened as it already has done so far.

Any women who have suffered at the hands of the gynaecologist may be eligible to claim compensation if negligence has been involved. If more victims should be identified, we are here to help them pursue recompense for the harm inflicted upon them, and eligible clients can benefit from No Win, No Fee legal representation.

Endocarditis misdiagnosis – compensation claims

compensation for a diagnosis error

There are some diseases or health conditions that require a quick diagnosis to bring the issue under control and give the patient their best chance of recovery. Endocarditis can be one such illness, as it can be fatal in the worst circumstances, particularly if left untreated. As such, an endocarditis misdiagnosis can be one of the most damaging forms of medical negligence that we may encounter in this specialist area of law.

Whilst endocarditis can be a rare condition, this does not excuse doctors and healthcare professionals from being able to identify its signs. It is vital that necessary precautions are taken when a patient seems to be exhibiting the symptoms of this condition, as a failure to act could have serious implications for the patient.

We all put our faith it the expertise of our doctors but, unfortunately, medical care does not always meet the standards we have come to expect on some occasions. However difficult the circumstances, doctors have an obligation to treat their patients to the best of their ability. Where they fail to do so, they may be in breach of their professional duties. If you have been affected by an incident like this, you may be able to pursue a medical negligence claim for personal injury compensation now.
