Medical Negligence Claim
When you believe you were injured or affected through medical negligence, the law requires you to prove that this was the case. This includes proving that the medical professionals involved were in breach of duty and that this in turn caused the injury or damages to you.
Proving your case of medical negligence
In order to prove breach of duty of care, it is essential to establish that doctors, nurses and so on were aware of everything they needed to know in order to diagnose and treat a condition/ injury correctly, but failed to do so. This may involve getting statements with regards to conversations between you and the attending medical personnel, your medical records and more.
The next step is to prove that it was this breach of duty that led to your injury/damages. For this, you will need to obtain your medical records showing what kind of treatment you received and when, plus details of the resulting injury due to incorrect treatments/medication and what is/was required to put things right.
If the original condition/injury worsened or was compounded by medical negligence, it may also help to include the original accident report form with the documents submitted as proof for your claim for medical negligence.
This should be no problem, as all companies are required by law to have staff available that employees can go to in order to report and record work accidents in detail.
