Should you or your loved one visit the GP or be referred to a hospital due to an illness or worrying symptoms, knowing that there is someone qualified enough to help you will put you at ease when it comes to receiving treatments.In the majority of cases, the medical professional provides outstanding treatment and care.

But what happens if a medical professional fails to do this? What happens if they actually worsen your condition?

At Abacus, our dedicated, expert solicitors deal with a whole range of medical negligence claims, taking away the stress that can often make the situation worse.

What is medical negligence?

Medical Negligence is when a healthcare or medical professional breaches their duty of care and the treatment you receive is negligent or sub- standard. UK law allows you to claim compensation if you have suffered negligent actions at the hands of medical or healthcare professionals both where treatment is provided privately or through the NHS.

Medical Negligence Claims

Medical negligence claims differ to personal injury, or other compensation claims. In order to be successful in claiming for medical compensation, you need to be able to show two things:

Proof that the medical professional failed in their duty of care which may include:

  • Failure to notice a broken bone on an X-Ray;
  • Failing to notice abnormalities on a mammogram or routine smear test;
  • Misdiagnosis of an illness;
  • Negligent surgery;

Show how this caused you avoidable harm such as:

  • A delay in the treatment you need;
  • Unnecessary surgery;
  • Prolonged pain.
