What is Medical Negligence?
In legal terms, medical negligence refers to a breach in a health professional’s duty of care. Specifically, it’s a breach where the patient has received inadequate or substandard care that has resulted in harm and/or loss. In medical negligence, loss or harm may include injury, amputation, deterioration of a patient’s condition, or even death.
At Farleys Solicitors, we handle a variety of medical negligence claims against both medical practitioners and healthcare authorities.
Medical negligence claims are highly complex and will 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
Medical and clinical negligence cases are subject to strict statutory time limits, and therefore must be submitted within three years of the date of the incident.
