Defining medical negligence
A medical negligence claim happens when a patient takes their hospital or doctor (or, sometimes, both) to court because the care he received falls below acceptable standards. As a result, the patient is often worse off than before and must prove that the medical professional damaged his health or that the incident would not have occurred in someone else’s hands.
At Robertsons Solicitors, we’ve handled negligence cases that have dealt with dental mistakes, clinical misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, birth injuries, surgical negligence and more. Many of our clients had been left with physical and emotional scars and ongoing financial concerns.
