Medical and Clinical Accidents
If you have suffered injury or illness as a result of Medical and Clinical Accidents you may be legally entitled to compensation for any resulting pain, suffering and other losses. Medical Claims can be stressful and using a specialist Solicitor can ensure you receive your full compensation amount.
Clearly, doctors, surgeons and other members of the medical profession owe a duty of care to patients and if, whether by act or omission, they fail in that duty and cause injury to a patient they may be liable at law to pay compensation. Claims resulting from Medical and Clinical Accidents are complex and proving negligence may not be as straightforward as, for instance, proving negligence in the case of a road accident. It will be necessary to establish that there existed a duty of care, that that duty has been breached and that the breach caused the injury or illness to the patient. In particular it will necessary to show that the standard of care provided fell below what would be considered reasonable and, of course, specialist medical evidence may be necessary.
Clinical and medical accidents can have very serious repercussions on the life of the affected patient. Medical negligence can be a minor error on the part of the doctor but also can have disastrous consequences for the patient. The accident can ruin his or her life and also have a profound psychological impact on the patient. For example, a doctor can be negligent during the delivery of a child and cause damage to the mother which can lead her to become infertile for the rest of her life. Doctors can also cause injuries to the baby by their improper actions during an operation, such as causing a fracture to the shoulder, causing permanent brain damage and facial palsy in the infant. All these defects can leave a child impaired for the rest of his or her life.
Common Medical and Clinical Negligence Claims
Common Medical and clinical negligence claims can be made by those who have suffered physical losses or ill health effects due to doctoral negligence during medical treatment. If knowingly, or unknowingly, medical practitioners commit the mistake of prescribing incorrect medicine or carrying out incorrect treatment, then laws are there to enable the aggrieved patient to sue them for compensation. Getting compensation claims will give you financial and mental relief for the losses incurred.
With the increasing size of the UK population, death rate is also high but if the death has occurred due to another’s negligence then it is the legal right of the family of the deceased to sue the other party for compensation. Death by negligence can include death in a road accident; death due to a doctor’s negligence, death due to an accident at work, home or in a shopping area. The family of the deceased must evaluate the actual reason for the death so as to ascertain whether they can sue the negligent party.
Death Whilst In Surgery

In the worst cases surgical negligence can cause death and it is the legal right of the family of the patient to sue the negligent surgeon for the proper compensation claim amount.
Medical and Clinical Specialists
Most patients have to put their faith in medical professionals for some form of medical or clinical treatment at some point in their lives. While the medical treatment can prove to be highly beneficial, there are chances of mistakes and negligence that can ultimately result in some unexpected suffering or pain. All of the medical treatments involve some risk that the patients should be carefully warned about before carrying out the particular treatment. However, not all the outcomes or unexpected accidents in the medical treatment are the negligence or fault of the medical professionals. There can be cases when medical and clinical accidents occur due to malfunction of a medical machine or equipment.
