Do I Have A Medical Negligence Claim?

Medical Negligence BelfastIf you are treated by a medical professional, such as a doctor, nurse, dentist or cosmetic surgeon, you can expect to receive care of a reasonable and professional standard.

If your treatment falls below this standard and you are harmed as a result, you are likely to have a valid medical negligence compensation claim.

You could have been harmed for a number of reasons, including:

  • Errors in surgery
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Late diagnosis
  • Infection that should not have happened
  • GP negligence
  • Nursing negligence
  • Birth injuries
  • Poor gynaecological care
  • Errors in dental treatment
  • Harm during cosmetic procedures

If your child has been affected by medical negligence, a claim can be brought on their behalf.

What Do I Need To Prove For A Medical Negligence Claim?

If you ask us to represent you, we will put together evidence of the three points that need to be established for a medical negligence claim. These are:

  • That you were owed a duty of care;
  • That this duty of care was breached, ie. your care was below what it should have been; and
  • You were harmed as a result of the breach of the duty of care

We can go through what happened at a free initial consultation and advise you on what sort of compensation you might be entitled to. If you go ahead with a claim, we will obtain your medical records and ask one of our medical experts to prepare a report on your injuries which will form the basis for your case.

Do I Have To Go To Court For Medical Negligence Compensation?

Once we have the details of what has happened, we will write to the insurer or legal representative for your healthcare provider and tell them that you intend to make a claim.

If they admit liability, we can use the medical report and details of your financial losses to start negotiating the amount of compensation you will receive.

We are very often able to deal with cases in this way without the need to go to court. If the other side does not admit liability or they do not offer enough by way of compensation, we will ask the court to decide your claim. You will be represented by an expert medical negligence advocate and we will make sure that you have the preparation and support you need throughout.

How Much Is Compensation For Medical Negligence?

The amount you will receive will depend on the level of harm that has been done to you as well as your related financial losses. You are entitled to receive two types of compensation:

  • General damages; and
  • Special damages

General damages is compensation for pain, suffering and loss of amenity. This includes a reduction in your quality of life and being unable to do things.

Special damages is to repay you for the financial losses you have incurred because of what has happened. This could include loss of earnings, future loss of earnings, the cost of any special equipment you need, prescription charges, the cost of travelling to medical appointments and any care or home help costs.

If you would like to ring us and speak to one of our medical negligence solicitors, we will be able to discuss with you the possible amount of compensation you could receive. Alternatively, you can use our medical negligence compensation calculator.
