If you undergo a medical procedure or treatment and something goes wrong, it may be because someone has done something they should not have, or that they have not done what they should. That is medical negligence.
For example, if a doctor has failed to send you to a consultant when there is clear evidence of a potential issue, that could potentially be medical negligence. Another example is a surgical item being left in a patient during an operation.
Fortunately, medical negligence is relatively rare in the UK. However, when it happens the consequences are serious, people have lost their livesor suffer from long-term health issues.
Where to get help
If you feel you have suffered medical neglect, it is very important to get professional help and do so at an early stage. The sooner you get help the better because your condition could very well deteriorate making it harder for you to spend time travelling to a lawyer’s office.
It is very important to get advice from a legal team that has experience of dealing with medical negligence cases like Secure Law. Medical neglect or negligence cases are often complex. There is a lot of technical detail involved, which has to be understood if your case is going to be successful. Only a team of lawyers that have previous experience of dealing with these kinds of cases will be able to fight your case effectively.
Suing medical staff is not something most people want to do, and that is understandable, but it is important to look at all of the options. Bear in mind that you may need extra money in the future to help you to deal with longer-term health issues that may occur because of errors made by medical staff.
