Although there are many circumstances that may amount to medical negligence, it’s important to remember that every health procedure carries associated risks. Sometimes, even the best intended care and treatment may lead to injury.
So, what is medical malpractice or negligence? Put simply, it occurs when the actions of a health provider (such as a doctor, hospital worker, or dentist) fall below an appropriate standard.
This is not restricted to injuries that occur over the course of medical treatment. Negligence or malpractice can also include:
Failure to properly diagnose
Failure to treat
Failure to perform surgery or provide medical services in a proper or adequate manner
Failure to warn patients of risks prior to a surgery or procedure
If you believe you’ve suffered personal injury, loss or damage due to medical negligence, it’s crucial you seek prompt and early advice about your potential entitlement. In order to prove negligence, you should also keep all medical records on file so that your medical negligence lawyers can best assist and act for you.
Medical negligence payouts are a complex area of the law. That’s why it’s important to have honest and professional advocates to advise you on how best to proceed.
