This legal duty is important in the medical industry because a single mistake or wrong diagnosis can lead to devastating, often fatal, consequences. If any medical professional falls foul of this obligation, or breaches this duty of care, they could be liable to face claims of medical negligence.
At Farani Taylor, our expertise and medical negligence solicitors have worked on a number of cases in this arena to help those who have been let down by medical professionals.
Clinical Negligence, also known as Medical Negligence, is when a patient accuses their doctor of a breach of duty of care that resulted in harm to the patient. To prove you have been a victim of clinical negligence, you must fufil both the following criteria:
• Another medical professional must agree that your doctor or nurse failed to act in a way that any other similar professional would have, proving liability.
• Another medical professional agrees that the harm caused would not have otherwise occurred, proving causation.
If successful, your claim will then be assessed with regards to loss of current or future earnings, reduced quality of life and mental anguish.
If you think you have a claim, or you need help in defining whether you are entitled to a clinical negligence claim, make sure you contact a solicitor immediately, to ensure the best chances for your case.
