Medical professionals are subject to stringent guidelines regarding their conduct and accepted standards of care, and breach of these guidelines can result in serious medical complications or even death.
In Greater Manchester and the surrounding area alone, numerous hospitals have been placed on a critical list. The strained resources and the mounting pressure of overcrowded waiting rooms can leave patients vulnerable to instances of medical negligence.
What is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence refers to a type of harm and/or loss that was caused by a breach in the duty of care from a health professional to a patient. The loss or harm could be anything from injury, amputation, deterioration of a patient’s condition, or even death.
At Farleys Solicitors, we handle a large range of medical negligence claims against both health care authorities and medical practitioners.
Medical negligence claims are complex by nature 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 the act/series of acts that could have been avoided
Like other injury claims, clinical and medical negligence claims have a statutory time limit and must be submitted within three years from the date of the incident.
