Medical Negligence Claims

We recognise that, on the whole, we have a proficient healthcare system offering world class nursing and medical treatment. The National Health Service (NHS) is made up of dedicated and caring professionals and on the whole, does amazing things. However, for many reasons including staff working to tight deadlines and restricted budgets, medical negligence does happen.

Medical negligence is often termed as clinical negligence and it means a breach of duty by a doctor, nurse, dentist, midwife, surgeon or any member of staff in a healthcare setting that results in an avoidable medical problem or harm to a patient. If you have suffered from an injury or any other health-related issues due to clinical negligence then you need to hire an expert medical negligence solicitor who can help you claim for a compensation OH Parsons’ specialist clinical negligence solicitors really do their best to listen to you and investigate your medical negligence claim.

What are the various types of medical negligence?

Some of the most common types of medical negligence are:

      • Birth injuries such as cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy
      • Amputations
      • Brain and spinal cord injuries
      • Surgical mistakes
      • Fatalities
      • Errors in prescriptions
      • Faulty equipments and medicines
      • Misdiagnoses

What issues come under birth injury?

Childbirth can be complicated and sometimes, avoidable complications may happen during delivery or in the neonatal stage. Birth injuries can occur as a result of oxygen shortage during delivery, a complicated caesarean section (C-section), infection, a complex normal vaginal birth, jaundice and shoulder dystocia . Birth injuries can also be fatal or lead to lifelong disabilities. Medical negligence when a baby is born can lead to cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, developmental problems and a range of other problems.

What is the legal process for bringing a birth injury claim?

Filing for litigation for birth injury is a very complex process. You need to hire the services of a birth injury lawyer to help you with the legal proceedings. OH Parsons has the best team of birth injury solicitors with high calibre and experience.

The birth injury lawyer begins by collecting all the relevant medical records and will talk to you and anyone else that was present about your experience during the birth of your child.

We will then contact independent medical experts to determine whether the treatment you and your baby received fellbelow the standard you were entitled to expect  and whether the birth injury was avoidable

What is dental negligence?

Dental negligence occurs when your dentist gives you the wrong or below standard dental treatment and you ended up suffering an injury or other harm due to that treatment. Dental negligence can drain you both physically and financially.

Some of the common reasons for dental negligence are:

      • Delayed Diagnosis
      • Incorrect treatment or careless treatment
      • Misdiagnoses
      • Poor standard of treatment
