Clinical negligence can arise from medical mistakes, which can cause serious injury, and even death.
When things go wrong, it can be very difficult for the patient and their family and the consequences of medical negligence can be devastating, both physically and financially.
Our specialist clinical negligence team at OH Parsons has experience of all kinds of injuries whether the treatment has been carried out under the NHS or in the private sector, including cases in the following areas of medicine – pregnancy and birth injury claims, misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis of cancer, cosmetic surgery, fatal claims, brain and spinal injuries, eye care and laser surgery, A&E department claims, GP negligence, nerve injuries, undiagnosed fractures and orthopaedic claims, surgical mistakes, drug and prescription errors, psychiatric injuries and dental errors.
Hospital negligence can arise in a number of ways, and sadly it is not always clear whether the injury sustained arose from the negligence of the health authority or workers within it.
Fatal cases arise where somebody has passed away as a result of poor treatment, which directly led to their untimely death.
At OH Parsons our specialist team of solicitors deal with claims where babies have been injured a result of the negligence of doctors, obstetricians and midwives.
Visiting your GP is usually the first port of call when you are ill or concerned about your health, but GP’s are under pressure to see a lot of patients and often do not have enough time to listen to all of your concerns and occasionally they might miss something important.
Private Treatment Claims
Mistakes can be made even when you or your private health insurers are paying privately for your medical treatment.
In recent years there has been a surge in dental claims, with dentists 4 times more likely to be sued than other practitioners.
