Medical Law Experts
A claim for medical negligence may be available where a person has suffered an injury as a result of medical treatment. Claims can be made against a treating doctor or hospital. To make a claim the injured person must show that the doctor or hospital owed a duty of care (which is usually not difficult to prove in a doctor/patient relationship), that there was a breach of the duty of care in the way that medical treatment was provided, and that an injury has been suffered as a result.
Medical negligence is a complex area of law that requires the specialist knowledge and skills held by our team of personal injury lawyers.
A wide variety of injuries can result from negligent medical treatment. In many cases the injury suffered as a result of medical negligence will be obvious. However, at times it can be difficult to determine the difference between the outcome of medical treatment that is negligent and not negligent. Often, the medical treatment complained of was sought because of an existing injury or medical condition. Determining the result of the negligent treatment is, therefore, an important step in the claim and requires careful expert opinion.
