What counts as clinical or medical negligence?

Medical negligence occurs when healthcare professionals fail to meet the expected standard of care, resulting in harm to the patient. Understanding whether your situation is medical negligence can be challenging, particularly if you’re uncertain about what qualifies. That’s why we recommend getting in touch with one of our expert solicitors, who can walk you through the process and establish whether you have grounds to make a claim.

Here are some examples of situations we can help with:


Make a medical negligence claim in Burnley

We’re always ready to sit down and listen to your story at our Burnley office, and we’ll help you figure out the best course of action to take if you think you’ve been affected by medical negligence. All medical practitioners, whether they’re doctors, nurses, or even dentists, have to adhere to an accepted standard of care when treating their patients. If you feel like the treatment you received falls below the standard you deserve and, as a result, you have suffered, you may be entitled to compensation.

Proving medical negligence can be a difficult task, so in order to pursue a case, you need to be able to clearly demonstrate the effects that it has had on your life. Sometimes the expertise of another medical professional with a similar or higher level of knowledge and training will be needed to add weight to your case.

  • Apart from this, any supporting evidence you can provide will help strengthen your case, such as any:
  • Medical records
  • Witness statements
  • Relevant photos (for example, depicting your injuries)
  • Financial records


What is the time limit for claiming medical negligence in Burnley?

You have three years from the date of your treatment to bring a medical negligence claim so the details of the situation can be accurately recalled. However, we understand that sometimes, the effects of medical negligence aren’t always immediately apparent. In cases like these, you may be granted an extra three years from what is known as the ‘date of knowledge’, which is the date that you became aware of the complications that have arisen due to your practitioner’s negligence.

Timelines can very quickly become complicated and confusing, so, as a rule of thumb, it’s always best to get in touch with one of our medical negligence claims solicitors in Burnley as soon as you think you may have a potential claim.
