Proving a medical negligence claim
Medical negligence claims are among the most complicated and difficult to prove.
You have to be able to show that there is at least a 50% chance that the treatment you have received has caused you to suffer more than you should have done. Quite often this is achieved by having the statement of a specialist in the area of the problem that was being treatment give their opinion. If they say that the way you were treated is normal, then you would not have a case. If however they say they would have treated the illness differently, this goes a long way towards the success of your medical negligence compensation claim.
