Clinical Negligence is improper, unskilled, or negligent treatment of a patient by a physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist, or other health care professional.
Clinical Negligence covers both NHS and privately funded hospitals, as well as a wide-range of medical practitioners. It also covers defective medical products, for example, implants or drugs.
When medical procedures go wrong, you want the very best legal help fighting your corner. At Manners Pimblett, we can help when a healthcare professional (for example a doctor, surgeon, nurse, therapist or dentist) has provided care or treatment that fell below an acceptable standard.
Clinical negligence can arise from a wide range of medical issues:
- medical misconduct;
- negligently performed medical treatment or surgery;
- negligently performed dental treatment or surgery;
- a delay or failure to diagnose a condition;
- a delay or failure to treat a condition;
- when a patient has not given their consent (agreement to the treatment)
