    What must medical negligence solicitors prove in a claim?

    When it comes to bringing a medical negligence claim and proof, the burden sits with you. So it’s up to you to show that the person you sue made the medical error and was responsible for your injuries and financial losses. Put into legal jargon, as we put it already – you henceforth have the “burden of proof.”

    So what happens when a person has the burden of proof in a medical negligence claim? In short, they must show that “it was more likely than not” that the clinician was negligent. Additionally, that their negligence caused physical or psychological harm. Clinical negligence solicitors refer to it as proving something on “a balance of probability.”

    • Above all, they owe you a duty of care you didn’t ultimately receive.
    • The negligent party breached that duty of care.
    • That breach resulted in your injury or illness.

    In the workplace, for example, an employer must provide a healthy and safe working environment. If you suffer an injury at work, you can make a claim for compensation if:

    • there was a lack of training;
    • maintenance, or;
    • safety procedures.

    Simplifying the medical negligence claim proof issue
