What counts as clinical or medical negligence?

Clinical or medical negligence happens when healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, surgeons, dentists, and other medical practitioners, fail to provide their duty of care, which can result in harm, injury, or negative outcomes for the patient.

Some examples of the type of medical or clinical negligence claim you might have include but are not limited to the following:

  • 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 Manchester?

If you believe that your healthcare provider has not provided you with adequate care, you may have the option to file a medical negligence claim in Manchester. However, it’s important to note that establishing negligence can be complex and requires the opinion of medical experts with similar or higher levels of expertise and training. What’s more, you have to be able to clearly demonstrate not only that your healthcare provider failed to deliver a reasonable standard of care but also that their negligence caused you harm.

If you want to make your case more substantial, we suggest that you collect as much evidence as possible. This could include pictures, statements from witnesses, medical records, any second opinions and financial records. Also, to increase the chances of your case being successful, you will need to provide proof from various professional organisations that the harm you suffered was a direct result of a breach or evidence showing that the act or series of acts could have been prevented. 

If you think you may have a claim, it’s crucial to act quickly to ensure that your case is brought to light within the given time limit.

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

If you want to file a claim for medical or clinical negligence in Manchester, you should know the time limit is three years, which typically starts from the date when you received the medical treatment. However, the UK’s legal system understands that the effects of medical negligence may not be noticeable immediately. So, in some cases, you may have an additional three years from the “date of knowledge,” which is when you first realised you had been affected by medical negligence. 

The circumstances are slightly different for children, and the three-year period will only come into effect once they reach the age of 18. Once in effect, they will have until the age of 21 to claim negligence. 

Calculating these timeframes can be complicated, so it’s always best to get in touch as soon as you think you may have a claim. In the unfortunate event that you experience medical negligence, rest assured that we are here to support you. Most cases are settled peacefully without the need to go to court. However, in the rare event that your case does go to court, we will guide you through the process from start to finish, ensuring that you receive the support you need every step of the way.

Medical Negligence FAQ's

What is medical negligence?

Medical negligence refers to any failure in a medical professional’s duty of care to their patient, in a way that causes undue suffering – whether that’s because it’s worsened an existing condition or injury, or even caused a new one entirely.

Medical negligence can arise from a misdiagnosis (or delayed diagnosis), incorrect treatment, or surgical mistakes. Cases can also arise in cases where symptoms were missed or ignored, or from a medical device or item not functioning as it should, causing illness or injury as a result.

How do I start my medical negligence claim?

If you plan on submitting a claim for medical negligence, the very first step is to contact us here at Farleys Solicitors. That gives us as much time as possible to assess your situation and explore your options with you, and complete vital early work on your case while you still have the details fresh in your mind. Starting earlier also means it’s easier for us to obtain vital records or information that might be pertinent to the success of your case.

If the NHS or private healthcare provider named named in your claim admits responsibility for your injury or condition, we may be able to secure interim compensation payments to assist with your rehabilitation while your claim is ongoing, before your final compensation settlement. This can help with some of the immediate medical costs and additional daily living expenses that may have been incurred as a result of your claim.
