Clinical negligence occurs when the legal duty of care has been breached by a healthcare professional. When you are unwell, or require surgery, when you are having a baby or looking after an elderly relative, you put a huge amount of trust in the skills and advice you receive. But if something goes wrong it can be traumatic, stressful and in some cases, life-changing.
Unfortunately, clinical negligence cases are quite common. The standard of some care is poor or negligent, and while honest mistakes can often be made, a root cause usually means someone is in error. These of course can have damaging results.
Clinical negligence can be classed as:
- Birth injuries
- Delayed or inappropriate treatment
- Surgical errors
