Patients visit a medical care service provider to get treatment for their ailments. Once accustomed to a particular clinical care provider, patients can continue to depend on the medical caregiver to provide professional medical care. Medical care providers usually ensure that the treatment is given according to the established U.K medical standards. But there have been many instances in the past where the care provider has been found to be guilty of giving substandard medical treatment to patients, resulting in serious side effects.

In some cases, the diagnosis itself might have been wrong, after which the patient received treatment for a disease they never had. Such instances of medical negligence turn to be extremely costly for the patients and their family members. The patients have to undergo additional treatment to set right the damage caused by medical negligence. This automatically leads to additional hospitalization and medical expenditure for the family members.

Affected families have the option of seeking the help of experienced medical negligence solicitors. Medical solicitors provide free initial advice to affected family members after getting the initial details about the patient and the kind of treatment provided by the caregiver that had caused adverse side effects.

In some cases, the patient could have developed new problems as the caregiver might have missed the symptoms all together. Medical solicitors analyse the case thoroughly to find out whether the patient’s condition deteriorated due to the medical negligence of the medical care provider. After arriving at a conclusion, medical negligence solicitors will start with the medical negligence compensation claims process.

Our Medical Negligence Compensation Claims Process:

Family members planning to get the help of a medical negligence solicitor to file a claim should do so within three years of the patient getting the medical treatment.

As one of the leading medical negligence solicitors in the United Kingdom, we ensure that our clients get the maximum compensation after performing a thorough investigation of the case. Our highly experienced medical negligence solicitors start record the statement of the patient who underwent the treatment. This statement forms the basis for any future court proceedings.

Our solicitors then start collecting the affected patient’s medical records. These records will then be shared with an independent expert who has expertise in the medical and legal field. The medical expert will then go through the medical records thoroughly and create a medical report that plays a crucial role in the claims process. With the expert’s medical report in hand, our solicitors will then send a claim letter to the defendant detailing the negligent actions and also the approximate compensation amount to be paid by the defendant.

The defendants in this case should reply within 4 months of receiving the claim letter. The defendants have the option of accepting their medical negligence, or rejecting the claim. If the defendants reject the claim, court proceedings are commenced in the form of a trial proceeding in one of the district courts.

Medical Negligence Claims Stemming From Anesthesia Errors

Anesthesia Errors Claim

Anesthesia literally means without sensation. It is a temporary state that causes unconsciousness and muscle relaxation.

There are basically three types of anesthesia: general anesthesia, sedition and regional anesthesia. General anesthesia causes suppression in the activity of central nervous system which results in total lack of unconsciousness. Sedition is another type of anesthesia which inhibits nerve impulse transmission between higher and lower centres of brain. It suppresses anxiety. Regional anesthesia is used for a particular part of the body. It insensates the body by blocking nerve impulse transmission between that part and spinal cord. All of these are administered at different times according to the treatment required by the patient.

Errors in anesthesia can occur in many forms. In most of the cases it occurs due to incompetence of the medical professional. These errors include incidences such as:

  • Delayed administration of anaesthesia
  • Administering it to a patient with allergies
  • Administering the wrong anesthetic drug to the patient
  • Defective medical equipment used in the administration of anesthesia
  • Failure to recognise complications
  • Anesthesia dosage error
  • Dangerously prolonged sedation
  • Failure to administer oxygen to the patient at the time of surgery
  • Failure to properly instruct the patient before giving anaesthetic drug about liming liquid and food

The above mentioned errors can cause to problems like:

  • Brain or organ damage
  • Heart function problems
  • A collapsed lung
  • Blood pressure complications
  • Dizziness and blurred vision
  • Stroke
  • Birth defects
  • Abnormal pulse
  • Nerve damage

In severe cases it can lead to coma and sometimes death. Doctors administering the anesthesia should be aware of how much dosage is required before the treatment. If the dosage is low there are chances that the patient, while in operation, is still conscious.

We assure you our solicitors will help you if you or your loved one has suffered from medical negligence errors in anesthesia. The hospital will be liable to pay the medical bills for the treatment of that error and you will also get compensation. In case of permanent disability the hospital will pay the compensation accordingly.

Anesthesia errors are very tragic and we will support you in recovering from this tragedy. We will make it certain that you receive your deserved compensation. We cannot undo what has been negligently done, but we will see to it every effort is made to recompense you.

Can You Sue the NHS for Negligence

NHS negligence often results in a lawsuit being filed. It is those negligence claims that result after errors and mistakes have occurred and have caused a patient extensive injury, or worse, death. A medical professional has a duty to provide each patient that he serves with the utmost in professionalism and safe and accurate care. Most of the time this happens, but mistakes can and do occur.

As the largest publicly funded healthcare system in England, the NHS offers a variety of services which include free emergency care to anyone who is in the country.

There are four things needed to file a negligence claim. Each of those four things must be proved in a court of law in order to win a lawsuit for negligence claims.

  1. First, it must be shown that it was the medical professional’s duty to look after the patient at the time.
  2. A breach of duty needed to happen. A breach occurs when the medical professional did not provide the level of care that was expected.
  3. The breach must also be responsible for the injury that has resulted.
  4. There must be damages caused to the patient.

It is with these four things that a lawsuit can develop.

To make a claim for negligence against a care provider, the person who has been injured or has suffered damages must act in a timely fashion. Talking to a solicitor quickly after an accident ensures that the time frame does not elapse, and all of the important information can be gathered when it is still fresh in the mind. Solicitors often offer patients a free consultation in which they can discuss the details of their case and learn whether or not they have a case. If so, the solicitor will start the case without any money needed. In fact, you don’t pay if they don’t win your case.

The NHS does all that they can to proven medical malpractice from occurring, but this does not mean that it is non-existent. Any patient who feels they have been injured as the result of inadequate medical care should be able to get satisfaction for the pain they have been caused. This includes lawsuits if and when the need arises. If a problem arises with your care within the NHS, do not be afraid to seek the justice that is deserved in the matter.
