Clinical Negligence

BRM Solicitors have helped many clients claim compensation for clinical negligence or medical negligence.

Clinical or medical negligence often occurs as a result of poor care or treatment in a hospital or an avoidable mistake made by a hospital, doctor, surgeon, nursing staff, dentist or even pharmacist error.

While doctors, surgeons, dentists and other healthcare professionals have very difficult jobs and most of the time do very good work, unfortunately medical errors and breaches of duty of care occur. The errors or negligence of a medical professional can lead to severe injury, long lasting health problems and unfortunately in some cases, death.

Examples of medical negligence and clinical negligence

  • Misdiagnosis of disease such as cancer
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Undiagnosed medical conditions
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Anaesthetic and anaesthesia errors
  • Cosmetic surgery gone wrong
  • Dentist mistakes such as a wrong tooth extracted
  • Pharmacy negligence

These are just a few examples of the types of clinical negligence which occur that can lead to physical injury, brain damage, disfigurement, long term health effects and psychological damage. Treatment required to deal with problems caused by the clinical negligence can sometimes cause further lasting health problems.
