Medical negligence or medical malpractice is where care provided by a professional working in the medical sector deviates from accepted standards of practice and causes you physical or physiological injury as a result.

There are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration when pursuing a medical negligence claim. You (the plaintiff) can only claim compensation for a medical negligence claim if you have sustained the injury.

Medical Negligence claims can be complex and are often based on the balance of probability but if a medical professional has breached their call of duty and caused you injury in the following areas there is a strong possibility that you have a medical negligence claim;

  • Not communicating risks involved in medical procedures.
  • Error in performance or administration of drugs during a procedure.
  • Delays in diagnosing injury source.
  • Insufficient follow up care.

The value of your case will be influenced by factors such as;

  • The extent of the physical injury.
  • Post traumatic stress.
  • Loss of earnings and potential loss of earnings.
  • Disabling effects on quality of life & pain suffered.
