Medical negligence solicitors in Manchester
Medical treatment in the UK is among the best available in the world. However, sometimes the level of care a patient receives can fall below the standard ‘duty of care’ that medical professionals are required to provide.
These errors can have harmful consequences for patients. If you are injured or your existing condition is worsened as a result of such poor care, you should enlist the help of experienced medical negligence solicitors as soon as possible.
Medical negligence claims we can help with
Common reasons for medical negligence claims include:
- Misdiagnosis, resulting in extended pain or incorrect treatment
- Delayed diagnosis or referral (particularly by a GP or in A&E)
- Surgical errors that caused harm or required corrective surgery
- Poor standards of care or hygiene resulting in infection or making an illness get worse
- Paralysis, brain or spinal injury or permanent scarring directly caused by medical negligence
- Defective medical products or equipment
- Pharmaceutical errors
Another situation in which medical negligence claims may be possible is if you weren’t given all the appropriate information before undergoing treatment.
For example, it is the duty of medical professionals to ensure patients know all the potential risks associated with any medication or surgical procedure. This is the only way you can give informed consent for your treatment, and if this hasn’t happened you should speak to our medical negligence solicitors in Manchester about a potential claim.
The value of medical negligence compensation claims are determined by the extent of harm caused, and the impact on the patient’s day-to-day life. Furthermore, the compensation should cover any further treatment required and loss of earnings incurred, so by working with us you can be sure that any compensation you receive will be tailored to your specific circumstances.
