Receiving a high level of care when in need of medical assistance is an expectation, however, unfortunately you may experience a medical professional failing to provide you with a satisfactory level of care and treatment, resulting in further injuries and medical costs. Medical professionals have an obligation to provide the highest level of care and when this doesn’t occur, it is known as medical negligence or medical malpractice. This is a highly specialised area of law, requiring experienced lawyers to handle claims of this nature.
What is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence or medical malpractice is when your doctor, hospital, pharmacist, health care provider, dentist or health care worker fails to provide you with the level of medical treatment that is deemed reasonable by other industry professionals. Even an unforeseen complication with an existing illness could have been caused by medical negligence from a previous health care provider or surgery.
If you have suffered significant injury, loss or damage as a result of a medical professional failing to provide adequate medical care, then you may be entitled to compensation for this trauma and require an experienced medical negligence compensation lawyer. Medical negligence claims include but aren’t limited to compensation for a number of reasons, such as cerebral palsy, mental health, medical misdiagnosis, head injuries, cardiac injuries and more.
