Common examples of medical negligence

If you have been made iller because of a medical professional’s error then you have unfortunately been the victim of medical negligence.

Sometimes it’s a minor error, but other times the impact on your life can be devastating.

After experiencing medical negligence, we understand that you want to focus on recovering. That’s what we’re here to help you do.

If you have experienced any of the following in the past three years, we may be able to help you claim compensation for your suffering:

Misdiagnosis

We understand that being misdiagnosed can be very distressing and leave you worrying about the future.

That’s why we’re here to help you through this difficult time, with the aim of you being able to look forward to your future without panicking.

The term misdiagnosis covers the following:

  • Your condition is not diagnosed at all, so the problem continues to go unrecognised and untreated
  • Your diagnosis is incorrect, for example if you have a lump which is first diagnosed as a cyst but later found to be cancerous

Either of these types of misdiagnosis can cause chaos in your life, however we can help you.

Whilst you focus on getting better, we can claim compensation to ensure that all medical expenses and loss of earnings are covered.

With our help you don’t have to worry about money, so can put all your energy into getting better.

Delayed treatment

Cases concerning delayed treatment are very similar to misdiagnosis cases.

Our team have helped many people who have fallen ill because something like a lump or bone fracture which was easily recognisable, has been overlooked by medical professionals.

In these cases the lump might be treated as a cyst, or the fracture treated as a sprain, for months before the actual problem is identified and treated.

Like with a misdiagnosis claim, we want you to be able to recover stress-free whilst we get you the compensation you need.

Failure to consider patient history

Your medical history is very important to consider when diagnosing and treating an issue.

For example if you have had a severe allergic reaction to a penicillin in the past, your doctor needs to consider this when prescribing antibiotics for infections.

Another example might be that you have had several cancer scares in the past, with non-cancerous lumps being removed in operations.

Because of this your doctor should refer to you a specialist clinic if you find another lump. If they don’t, and it is found that the lump is unfortunately cancerous, you would be eligible to claim.

Our solicitors are experts in handling cases where medical professionals have failed to consider patient history, which has resulted in harm being inflicted on the patient.

If this has happened to you, we want to help you get compensated, and get your life back on track so you can look forward to the future.

Incorrect treatment

We know that receiving the incorrect treatment can be very disruptive and potentially harmful to your health.

Incorrect treatment covers incidents such as medication or prescription errors and surgical mistakes. For example, you may be prescribed a higher dosage of medication than you need which leads to you falling ill.

Or, your surgeon might fail to effectively stitch a wound after your operation which leads to infection, causing further medical issues.

We understand that incidents like these can have a large impact on your life. You might not be able to work or participate in sports like you did before.

We want to help you to get compensated for your suffering so that you can focus on the road to recovery.

What would be a valid medical negligence claim?

If you have been a victim of medical negligence we can help you claim compensation.

Below are some of the common questions we ask to determine whether you have a valid claim:

  • Was your medical or clinical treatment within the last three years?
  • Are you now suffering due to this negligence?
  • Do you believe the medical professional could have acted in a way that would have prevented your injury or pain?

No matter how insignificant you think your experience might have been, any form of medical negligence is unacceptable.

We understand the ordeal you’ve been through, and want to help you get back on your feet and back to normal, as much as we can.

We can help you to achieve the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Time limits

You have three years to pursue a medical negligence claim from the date of the incident or date of knowledge of the incident, if the negligence was discovered at a later date.

We will be able to start your claim promptly, gathering evidence, speaking to specialists and putting together medical records in order to present a strong case on your behalf.

You can rely on us – we will always do our best to get you compensation for any past suffering, providing you with financial support for the future.

I first contacted AWH in december and booked my consulation with Shayeda. I didn’t wait long for an appointment and was given very professional advice and the appointment was thorough. Shayeda brought me the print outs and showed me everything I needed for my application. Both Shayeda and Cathryn were very helpful throughout my application. I received a very professional service from AWH and they have alot of knowledge & would recommend them for your immigration matters.
