Medical Negligence Claims in the UK

Sep 4, 2008
What is medical negligence, you're probably asking yourself right now? Medical negligence is a situation when a health service provider such as a doctor or hospital fails to provide you with the acceptable standard of treatment that they should have provided you. The treatment for any medical condition or injury requires the precise skill of a doctor because of their qualified expertise and advanced knowledge in their particular field to help you fully recover to a healthy being. It requires the sanitary environment of a hospital or any other medical facility because the public depends on a hospital's high standards in hygiene and care that an individual's fragile state of health may need to fully heal from an injury or ailment.

When a doctor is careless in treating your sickness or injury which worsens your condition; or when a medical facility fails to maintain its strict hygienic standards and causes your health to deteriorate further, this is known as medical negligence. It is important you get compensated financially by the person responsible by filing for medical negligence claims. All of us are not as skilled or knowledgable as a doctor and we depend and trust them to treat us in the proper manner to heal us quickly from our ailments. When doctors break that trust and fail to take resonable care of us in the proper manner that is medical negligence. Medical negligence can vary from any of the following: The failure to diagnosing an illness on time, the failure to provide treatment on time, the failure to operate and perform surgery as per correct procedure, the failure to provide accurate test results, and the failure to provide essential care after an extensive surgery or operation.

If you file for medical negligence claims and are successful you will receive compensation for any physical pain, psychological trauma or financial loss you suffered caused by the careless actions of a doctor or hospital. In order to make a medical negligence claim, you need to have sufficient proof displaying the failure to provide correct treatment or hygienic standards and the negative effects on your health. It is essential to display the degree of injury and severity of the incident so they can determine the amount of financial compensation you deserve. Let me highlight the fact that, doctors can make mistakes within reasonable measures since there are new aspects of science and medicine being uncovered and learned about every minute. However, neglect is a complete disregard of the responsibility to maintain the health of an individual and that's something no doctor or medical facility should be pardoned for.

If you are ready to file medical negligence claims, ensure that you have the medical records and reports that were made for you by the doctors or hospital involved. You will also need to get another private medical expert's examination done to determine the value and significance of the doctor or hospital you are making a claim against. UK based firms are not legally allowed to charge you any fees for helping you obtain medical compensation unless they win the case for you. This policy is referred to as a "No Win, No Fee Policy." In spite of these conditions, it is wise to enquire about the procedures your solicitor will take on your behalf if he does lose the case.

Don't suffer any longer, either physically mentally or financially and file medical negligence claims to get the compensation you deserve.
