Here is a short passage explaining a few of the possible scenarios for medical negligence:
Accident and Emergency: Accident & Emergency (A&E) teams receive patients in urgent need of adequate medical assistance. Due to the workload and pressures involved, mistakes are, sadly, easily made in this department, leading to the need for a medical negligence misdiagnosis claims solicitor.
Avandia Diabetic Medication: The drug Avandia was prescribed from 2000 to British diabetics to lower insulin resistance, but then withdrawn in Europe in 2010 due to evidence of harmful side-effects. Any patients that suffered with these side-effects could make a compensation claim for medical negligence misdiagnosis.
Bed Sore Claims & Pressure Sore: Patients that are bedridden as a result of illness, disability or old age can develop bed sores on their skin. These can be avoided with adequate medical care, but if this care has not been taken then seek the services of a medical negligence misdiagnosis claims solicitor.
Blood Transfusion: Blood transfusions are essential in various medical situations, from accidents to cancer, but they can also be risky. Use of the wrong blood type, or the use of infected blood are two such possible complications. If negligence has put a patient in danger, a medical negligence claim can be made for blood transfusion compensation.
Brain Aneurysm Negligence: 1 in 100 people are reported to suffer a brain aneurysm annually, but only 1 in 12,500 people experience a rupture that could be avoided with medical help. Where misdiagnosis happens, medical negligence misdiagnosis compensation claims advice should be obtained from a solicitor.
Brain Haemorrhage: A brain haemorrhage is a frightening situation that will make a victim dependent on medical help. It would be even more of a tragedy if this serious injury was caused by clinical malpractice and was unnecessary.
GPs: GPs are the main medical contact point for the majority of the public at most times in their lives. We regularly rely upon them to safeguard the healthcare needs of both ourselves and our close ones. It can be very disappointing to have GPs fail us.
Delayed Treatment: Where treatment is delayed, there will frequently be complications for patients of varying severity – some ailments can worsen if they remain unchecked. The timing of treatment can be crucial in terms of sickness severity, longevity and recovery. In situations where treatment has been delayed, you may be eligible to make a delayed treatment claim.
Diabetic Negligence: If the diagnosis of diabetes has been delayed due to an error, the treatment might have also been delayed. Under these circumstances, any suffering caused is a form of medical negligence, and a victim should seek medical negligence misdiagnosis compensation claims advice.
Eye Treatment: New technology has given hope of improved eyesight to people with poor or failing eyesight. However, with an increase in laser eye surgery clinics and surgeons, a proportionate increase in cases of treatment blunders damage has occurred. Where this occurs, a claim for medical malpractice compensation may be built. Victims of these mistakes should be claiming compensation for medical negligence.
Hospital Acquired Infection: Hospital patients may find that their illness or injury renders their immune system vulnerable. It’s beyond belief to have to face the possibility that attending a hospital might lead to catching an infectious disease, but it does happen. This would be grounds for a medical malpractice claim.
Medical Product Liability: We expect that all medical products will be reliable for, and compatible with, the patient that they are used on, but if this fails to happen, you may be entitled to make a medical product liability claim for compensation.
Suing the NHS: It may sound like a huge undertaking to sue an organisation which is part of the government infrastructure and as huge as the NHS. However, like all publicly funded services, the NHS can be held accountable. Mistakes are made and some of them are costly.
Nursing Negligence: An overstretched NHS has left nurses being forced to work long hours and under extreme pressure. Sadly this means the standard of care being delivered is under threat, with more patients becoming victim to nursing negligence and more people claiming compensation for medical negligence.
Orthopaedic: Musculoskeletal injuries are among the most common injuries among sportspeople, leading to orthopaedic treatment becoming widespread. Where complications have been caused by negligence, a medical malpractice claim should be considered.
Paramedic Negligence and Failure in Ambulance Services: Paramedics can make mistakes just like any other medical personnel, especially with all the pressure they are under. When they do, think about making a compensation claim for medical negligence.
Prescription Error: Prescription errors, and the consequential side-effects of taking the wrong medicine, can endanger a patient further. A cure or relief was needed and then an inappropriate remedy was given which made things worse. If you have been subject to this type of negligence, you may be eligible to make a medical claim for compensation.
Pulmonary Embolism: Blood clots that were not noticed by medical staff, or treated correctly, killed 10,000 people in 2010. If medical negligence connected a blood clot occurs, a pulmonary embolism compensation claim can be made.
Rogue Doctor: Approximately 230,000 doctors in the UK are now monitored to ensure high levels of patient care. However, instances of ‘rogue doctors’ that are practicing despite being incompetent are still apparent and warrant a medical malpractice claim.
Sports Injury: Sports are an ideal way to keep fit, but they can also be physically demanding. If a medical professional’s does not diagnose a sports injury correctly, a claim for medical malpractice could be launched.
When Your Health Authority Should Apologise: NHS standards of care are generally of a very high standard, among the best in the world. However, human error occurs within the health sector just as it does in within other professions. When a medical mistake affects people’s lives, the patients, families and carers are entitled to both an apology and an explanation.
If any medical procedure falls below your expectations and a medical professional is at fault, our professional solicitors can discuss your case in the strictest confidence and devise a strategy to make a claim.
