What is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence refers to a breach in a health professional’s duty of care – specifically one that has resulted in harm and/or loss. This harm or loss could involve death, injury, or a deterioration of a patient’s condition.
Medical negligence cases can cover a large range of claims against both medical practitioners and health care authorities. By nature, medical negligence claims are highly complex and require:
- A weight of evidence from various professional bodies
- Evidence that clearly shows the harm sustained was the direct result of a breach
- Alternatively, the evidence must show that the act/series of acts could have been avoided
As with the majority of claims, medical and clinical negligence cases are subject to strict statutory time limits, and must be submitted within three years of the date of the incident.
