What is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence covers any preventable medical error or preventable failure in a clinical duty of care. This is not confined to GP surgeries or hospitals, but also covers dental clinics, nursing homes and mental health services. Medical negligence also covers both public and private healthcare services.
Typical medical negligence issues involve untimely or misdiagnosis of cancer or other serious illnesses and disease, wrongly prescribed medication, errors during surgery and neglect at nursing homes or other live-in medical services.
Where negative consequences could have been avoided or prevented, you could be entitled to compensation. Waldrons will establish the details of your case and work towards a favourable and just outcome.
Types of Medical Negligence
We expect our relatives and loved ones to be safe and looked after in nursing homes, but there have been several high-profile incidents of clinical negligence in nursing homes across the UK.
Nursing home negligence includes neglect, providing the wrong medication or a general failure in providing an adequate duty of care. Waldrons Solicitors can help you make nursing home medical negligence claims for yourself or on behalf of someone else.
We understand that medical negligence in a nursing home or care home setting can be a very difficult experience, regardless of whether it has happened to yourself or a relative.
Medical negligence also applies to both private and NHS dentistry and dental health practices and clinics. Dental negligence includes errors during dental surgery, e.g. tooth extraction, damage to gums and/or teeth, injury to nerves and other issues and failure to provide an accurate and timely diagnosis.
Dental negligence cases are not treated any differently than other medical negligence cases. Waldrons will work with you to establish what happened during your dental treatment, what preventable harm was caused and how it should have been avoided.
GP negligence is one of the most common types of negligence. We rely on our GPs for a wide array of tests and diagnoses as well as referrals to specialists and the prescription of medication. Where your GP fails to refer you for further tests, e.g. where cancer is suspected, or otherwise fails to provide an accurate duty of care, a medical compensation claim is possible.
The Waldrons team will work with you to establish what went wrong at your GP practice. We will liaise with healthcare professionals and specialists to discover how malpractice could have been prevented, helping you develop your compensation claim.
