Medical Negligence Compensation

Medical Negligence Compensation

There are a large number of people who suffer every day for Medical & Clinical accidents through not receiving correct medical care. Being involved in the industry of medicines is a demanding job, illness is not as it is shown in the text books, there are various hidden factors and complications can happen all of a sudden. Human failure is one of the basic facts of life, and when an explanation and apology is not sufficient to compensate the loss, people need to file for a Medical Negligence compensation claim, not only on the part of nurses and doctors, but also the health care provided by opticians, dentists, mid-wives, psychiatrists and physiotherapists.

Most common causes of Medical & Clinical Accidents include infectious disease because of unclean surroundings and conditions, complications that came up during a surgery, acquiring of HIV/AIDS due to contaminated syringes and other instruments, pressure sores or mid-diagnosis of a disease. A patient dying due to a doctor’s mistake is the worst case of medical negligence. There have been cases when the doctor mis-diagnosed a disease and removed healthy parts of a person’s body.

If you have decided to move ahead and claim for Medical negligence compensation, then you need to do certain things that may be helpful during the investigation of your claim. The first step is to give your statement, outlining the account of what exactly happened, second one is the medical records including your GP’s records. Your solicitor may also require a medical report from a specialised medical practitioner outlining that the standard of the care that you got was below the reasonable norms. Your solicitor may also want evidences in support of the statement that it was the doctor’s negligence that caused your injury.

It is the duty of the hospital and the doctors that cared for you to care for the well-being and safety of the patients. If they do not follow the standard norms of health care, then they have definitely breached their responsibility of caring for the patients. If you have also received improper or negligent medical care, then it is your legal right to claim for compensation.
