Clinical negligence

Clinical negligence is best defined as a breach of a legal duty of care owed to one person (a doctor, nurse or other medical practitioner, for example) to another (a patient). Clinical negligence is all about claims for damages made against a medical practitioner, healthcare professional or a hospital trust. In order to make a successful claim, the patient or his or her close relatives (in the event of a patient’s death) have to prove the following: –

  • the healthcare professional owed a duty of care to the patient and should not have caused injury;
  • there was a breach of duty of care;
  • the breach of duty was harmful to the person making the claim for compensation;
  • because of the harm caused there were other losses and damage.

If these points can be proven then there is a potential personal injury compensation claim to make for clinical negligence.
