    Personal Injury Lawyers in Abersoch

    The most common claims that personal injury lawyers in Abersoch have to deal with are claims related to slips, trips and falls. Motoring accident claims are commonplace as well, occasionally someone will come through the door with a more unusual type of claim. Claims for medical negligence are not as common as other types of injury claims, mainly due to the fact that patients who have suffered as the result of a mistake do not understand that they are in fact able to make a claim for compensation, or even if they are aware, they do not feel confident enough to take on something so large as a health service.

    Medical negligence – You can make a claim

    Medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence) is described by industry professionals as the process in which a patient takes his medical attendants to a civil court for compensation. It is not about the professional conduct or terms of service of the medical attendant.

    Personal injury lawyers – How can medical negligence be proven?

    Medical negligence can be proven in the following ways:

    • The claimant – who is usually the patient – must show that the doctor or medical attendant had a duty of care to the patient that for some reason was not fulfilled causing the patient to suffer. The claimant has to prove both liability and “causation” to obtain compensation. These two conditions are important and are explained as:
      • Liability to show that the attendant must have been found to have acted in a manner that no other similar professional would have done.
      • Causation that harm has resulted which would not otherwise have occurred (on the balance of probability, i.e. the action of the attendant was more than 50% likely to have caused the harm).
    • The Claimant’s loss is then assessed in terms of what is legally called quantum (loss of current and future earnings, reduced quality of life, mental anguish) and the recompense is money – nothing more and nothing less.

    This is obviously a tricky situation and not something that the layperson could even begin to argue in a court of law. This is why, when choosing which of personal injury lawyers to act on your behalf, you need to make sure that they have the relevant experience. In the first instance you should get expert advice from a legal firm with a sound claims background in all fields.
