Negligent treatment and advice

You could be eligible to claim medical negligence compensation that arises from problems with treatment where the issue stems from poor advice or courses of treatment taken. It could be that the incorrect diagnosis has then resulted in the incorrect course of treatment, which can also lead to a claim for compensation being potentially valid.

This is one of the most common reasons as to how there can be problems with treatment. To prove a case, what we need to do is establish two key things:

  1. That you have been the victim of negligence; and
  2. That the negligence has caused you to suffer.

Some treatments and medicines carry inherent risks, and sometimes there are unforeseen events that do not stem from negligence. Those are not usually claimable, but if the problem does arise due to an error or a mistake, that is where negligence could be established. We can instruct a private expert to produce an independent report that can help to prove this for you.

Medication and device problems

Some problems with treatment can actually arise due to issues or complications that stem from medication that is being issued, or with medical devices that are used. These could be injections, oral medicines, or implants that are used to correct problems.

You can still be eligible to claim compensation if the issue stems from this kind of problem, where negligence is a factor. Your claim may be directed to a product or drugs supplier or manufacturer, although if the issues arises from negligent administering then the case could still be with a healthcare organisation or NHS trust. We can investigate, as part of a legal case, to determine who should be responsible for the claim and we can pursue them accordingly.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) publishes information about problems and recalls. There are usually quite a lot, and in most cases they can be precautionary measures where potential problems are identified. It does not always mean that patients are at risk of suffering, but we must always be extra careful when it comes to drugs and devices.

In a recent example, a Class 2 Medicines Recall was issued for Fluorouracil Injections due to the detection of glass lamellae particles. These were identified during ongoing studies and means that further work may need to be done to avoid any patients potentially coming to any harm.
