When you visit a healthcare professional for advice or treatment you assume that everything will be fine. Whilst largely healthcare professionals do an excellent job, unfortunately sometimes they make mistakes and those mistakes can have very serious consequences. Our clinical negligence solicitors in Leicester can help.
People in the healthcare profession have a duty of care for the treatment or advice they provide to their patients. If they provide you with substandard treatment or wrong advice then you may be able to bring a claim for compensation. The claim that can be brought is clinical negligence, also known as medical negligence.
A clinical negligence claim can be brought against the NHS and private healthcare institutions.
Medical negligence claims can include:
- Surgical errors
- Poor Dental Work
- Mishandled pregnancy or childbirth
- Substandard Cosmetic Surgery
- A poor or low level of care
- A failure or delay in acting
- Malpractice or error which leads to the avoidable death of a patient
- Prescribing wrong medication or the wrong level of medication
