Can I claim for medical negligence?

In order to make a claim for medical negligence, you need to establish that there has been a breach of duty, and that this breach has caused an injury that could otherwise have been avoided.

For example, a medical negligence claim might arise due to a delayed diagnosis of cancer. The delay may be the fault of medical practitioners, perhaps because the GP failed to refer a patient for tests, or a specialist failed to accurately analyse the test results. If there is a delay because of medical error, this will cause a patient for suffer injuries that would have been avoided, had an earlier diagnosis been made.

For instance, the patient will have endured an increased period of pain and suffering while their cancer remained undiagnosed. Furthermore, the patient's prognosis will almost always be worse than if an earlier diagnosis had been made, as cancer is best treated in the early stages. This may result in more invasive treatment and a shorter life expectancy.

How do I find out if I can claim?

To find out if you can claim, all you need to do is speak to a solicitor who specialises in medical negligence law (also called 'clinical negligence law'). A solicitor will listen to the details of your medical care and use their professional knowledge to advise you further. If it seems there is a case of medical negligence, you will be told that you have the grounds for a claim and asked if you would like to proceed.

What does a medical negligence solicitor do?

A medical negligence solicitor will firstly be able to tell you whether you are able to make a medical negligence claim. If you are, your solicitor will run the case for you, taking care of the entire process on your behalf. You will need to contribute in some respects such as providing a witness statement and going to see medical experts.

Otherwise, however, your solicitor will do everything for you, including: obtaining your medical records, instructing medical experts to examine you and write a report, assessing your damages, seeking advice from a barrister and negotiating a compensation settlement.
