Claims against hospitals, GPs and dentists
When you undergo medical treatment you expect to be treated with expert care. However, sometimes things go wrong and mistakes are made. If you have been injured as a result of medical negligence, you may be able to claim compensation.
Medical or clinical negligence includes:
- Dental negligence
- Ophthalmic claims
- Drug and medication errors
- Mistaken or delayed diagnosis
- Surgical claims
- Birth injuries
- Claims against GPs, nurses or doctors
Medical negligence claims are particularly complex due to the scientific issues involved, so it is vital to use specialist lawyers who understand the legal and medical issues.
