What counts as clinical or medical negligence?

Clinical or medical negligence refers to instances where healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, surgeons, dentists, and other medical practitioners, fail to meet the accepted standard of care expected in their profession, resulting in harm, injury, or adverse outcomes for the patient.

Medical and dental negligence can encompass a wide range of situations, including but not limited to:

  • A&E Compensation Claims
  • Amputation Claims
  • Bed Sore Claims
  • Birth Injuries Claims
  • Cancer Compensation Claims
  • Cerebral Palsy Claims
  • Cosmetic Surgery Claims
  • Delayed Diagnosis Claims
  • Dental Negligence Claims
  • GP Negligence Claims
  • Gynaecology and Urology Claims
  • Hospital Compensation Claims
  • Hospital Infection Claims
  • Laser Eye Surgery Claims
  • Medication Errors
  • Misdiagnosis Claims
  • Sepsis and Infection Claims
  • Surgical Accident Claims

Am I eligible to make a medical negligence claim in Blackburn?

If you believe your healthcare provider has not provided a reasonable standard of care, you may have grounds to file a medical negligence claim in Blackburn. Clinical and medical practitioners are expected to meet a certain standard of care when treating their patients, so if you can provide sufficient evidence that your healthcare provider did not meet this consideration standard, they likely breached their duty of care to you.

It’s important to remember that proving a breach of care often requires the opinion of medical experts with similar or higher levels of expertise and training. Even then, establishing negligence can be complicated because not only do you need to prove that your healthcare provider failed to deliver a reasonable standard of care, but you must also demonstrate that their negligence has caused you harm.

If you want to strengthen your claim, we recommend that you gather as much evidence as possible. This could include photographs, statements from witnesses, medical records, expert opinions, and financial records. Moreover, to increase the likelihood of your claim being successful, you will need to provide evidence from various professional organisations indicating that the harm suffered was a direct result of a breach or evidence demonstrating that the act/series of acts could have been prevented. It’s also important that you complete this process as soon as possible, so you can bring your claim to light before time runs out.


What are the time limits for claiming clinical or medical negligence?

Filing a claim for medical or clinical negligence in Blackburn has a time limit of three years, which typically starts from the date when you received the medical treatment. However, the UK’s legal system acknowledges that the effects of medical negligence may not become apparent immediately. In some cases, you may have an additional three years from the “date of knowledge,” when you first realise you have been affected by medical negligence.

The calculation of these timeframes can be complex, so we strongly advise you to contact us as soon as you suspect you may have a claim. By taking this proactive approach, we can address your case promptly. Another thing to note is that most medical negligence cases are settled peacefully without needing to go to court. However, you can rest assured that if your case goes to court, we are here to support and guide you through the process from start to finish.
