What counts as clinical or medical negligence?

We understand that it can be difficult to figure out if your case falls under medical negligence. That’s why we always suggest speaking to one of our compassionate and experienced experts who will help you navigate this challenging situation.

Typically, clinical or medical negligence comes as a result of a doctor, nurse, or other medical practitioner failing to meet the accepted duty of care, resulting in harm, injury, or a negative outcome for the patient. Here are some examples of the claims we can help with:


Make a medical negligence claim in Preston

We completely understand how overwhelming and stressful it can be to deal with legal conflicts. We want you to know that you’re not alone in this, and we’re here to help. Our team of experienced medical negligence solicitors in Preston are ready to sit down with you, listen carefully to your situation, and prioritise your best interests as we move forward.

All healthcare professionals, including doctors and nurses, are responsible for providing their patients with a certain level of care, known as the duty of care. If you feel that your healthcare provider did not provide the standard of care that they were supposed to, then you may have a case for medical negligence.

If you can prove that your doctor’s level of care fell below reasonable expectations, then they have breached their duty of care. Keep in mind that proving such a breach often requires the expertise of medical professionals with a similar or higher level of knowledge and training.

Establishing negligence is a challenging task in itself, so to pursue compensation, you must also be able to demonstrate that you have experienced difficulty and suffered as a direct result of your provider’s negligence.

Gathering different types of supporting evidence can help strengthen your case and our solicitors will help with this process. Some examples include:

  • Medical records
  • Witness statements
  • A second expert opinion
  • Relevant photos (for example, depicting your injuries)
  • Financial records


Is there a time limit for claiming clinical or medical negligence?

Generally, you have a three-year window to claim clinical or medical negligence, starting from the date you received treatment. However, the UK legal system understands that the effects of medical negligence aren’t always immediately apparent, so in some cases, you may even have an additional three years from the “date of knowledge” (the date from which you became aware that you were affected by medical negligence).

That being said, these timeframes can be complicated to determine accurately. That’s why, at Farleys, we always recommend getting in touch as soon as you believe you have a claim so we can work on resolving it efficiently and effectively.
