Clinical Accidents

Clinical accidents occur when a member of the medical profession fails to perform his duties properly. It can be any doctor, general practitioner or any member of the medical profession. Clinical accidents can be very harmful and can be fatal in many cases.
 
Clinical and medical accidents can have very serious repercussions on the life of the patient. Clinical accidents can be a minor negligence on the part of the doctor but they can leave disastrous consequences for the patient. They can ruin his or her life and also have a profound psychological impact on the patient. For example, a doctor can be negligent during the delivery of a woman and just cause damages to her vagina which can lead to her to become infertile for the rest of her life. Doctors can also cause injuries to the baby by their irresponsible behaviour during operation like fracture his shoulder, cause permanent brain damage and facial palsy in the infant. All these defects can leave a child impaired for the rest of his or her life. Sometimes clinical and medical accidents can cause the death of the infant also. This happens when an infant is left on the incubator for a longer period of time than required after the birth. A child is kept in the incubator soon after the birth to keep him warm. But the child is not taken out at the right time it can also lead to burning of the child and the child can lose a body part. Eventually, the infant can die also.

Another serious kind of medical and clinical accidents are misdiagnosis of diseases and prescribing wrong drug to the patient. This can leave the patient with harmful side-effects. A doctor should therefore be careful during the diagnosis of a disease and should use his full knowledge in this regard.

Other kinds of clinical accidents are surgical errors. These accidents happen when a doctor forgets his equipment in a patient’s body after the surgery which can cause internal injuries to the patient. Doctors usually forget their swabs inside a patient’s abdomen which can cause unbearable pain to the patient.

These days a patient can claim compensation in case of such accidents. Many legal companies have come forward to help the patient in this regard. They offer help to the patient in assessing the cost of the damages he has suffered and file a suitable claim.
