Within the UK we are lucky enough to have a National Health Service that is free at the point of use and which, for the largest proportion of the time, provides an excellent quality of medical assistance, treatment and care.
However, no system is ever perfect and sometimes things can go wrong. If you have been affected by medical negligence you may be thinking about making a compensation claim in Upper Brailes.
What is medical negligence?
When something goes wrong in a medical treatment setting this is known as medical negligence, or even clinical negligence.
Medical negligence covers a wide variety of areas including:
- Birth injuries (to either Mother or Baby)
- Misdiagnosis (this can include misdiagnosis of a particular illness or disease, as well as utter failure to diagnose an illness or disease , also known as undiagnosis)
- Surgical errors (including problems with anaesthetics)
- Prescription errors (including providing the wrong type of treatment, or prescribing a drug that your records show you are allergic to)
- Cosmetic surgery errors (including reconstructive surgery)
