What is medical negligence?
Also termed clinical negligence, medical negligence denotes a failure of care or malpractice as carried out by a medical professional. This can be anyone from a nurse to a doctor, surgeon, midwife, dentist or anaesthesiologist. If they neglect to correctly diagnose a condition, properly treat it or show any other type of negligence, you could be entitled to claim and receive financial compensation for the injuries you may have sustained.
Who can make a claim?
In order to make clinical negligence accident claims in South Somerset, your case must meet certain criteria. For example, it must have taken place within the past three years, and you should be able to prove that there was negligence involved and that you were in no way at fault for your injuries/illness. If this sounds like you, you could be within your rights to make a claim.
