    Medical negligence

    There are many situations when medical negligence could occur. Any form of medical treatment runs the risk of a negligent clinician causing you harm or of the policies and procedures that are in place causing your health to be damaged in some way.

    People have been harmed by dentists, doctors, podiatrist and chiropractors. You can suffer from medical negligence when you are receiving treatment on the National Health Service or privately.

    The harm caused by medical negligence.

    We have many clients calling us because they want to know what could the long term effects of medical negligence be. They are worried about how they will get their lives back on track and how they will earn a living. We can help them by assessing whether they have grounds to start a personal injury claim with us here at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Many clients ask us whose fault is medical negligence. This can be a tricky question to answer as the fault may lie with an individual member of staff or with a policy or procedure that is not protecting patient’s health. You do not need to worry about this at all. All you need to do is let us get on with handling your claim – we will deal with all of the legal technicalities.

    Injuries that medical negligence can cause can be permanent. You may need adaptations to your home and to your car to help you cope with physical limitations. We may be able to include this element in your personal injury claim. We simply have to prove that you are injured and that your injury was caused by medical negligence of some sort. An ‘injury’ could be a disease or a health condition.
