Failed Treatment Negligence Claims
When you underwent your medical treatment it was probably after discussion and deliberation to make sure you were doing what was best for your health. Unless you are a medical professional, you have no alternative other than to trust what you are told is correct, which is why experiencing treatment failure due to medical negligence is so upsetting.
The team at The Medical Negligence Experts understand that considering making a claim for compensation can be daunting. However, if you seek not only financial compensation to cover the loss of earnings and other expenses but also want those professionals to accept responsibility for putting you and your loved ones through such trauma, it can be the best way.
What is Failed Treatment Negligence?
No treatment comes without the risk of failure but those treating and caring for you or your loved one should do everything possible to ensure your treatment is a success. When treatment fails due to human error, then you may have a claim for negligence. Examples of failed treatment negligence can include:
- Failure to update a patient’s records with relevant information like allergies or family medical history.
- Failure to disclose risks and options, and obtain informed consent.
- Misdiagnosing a condition.
- Carrying out an unnecessary operation.
- Neglecting to follow up with a patient during and after the treatment to evaluate its effectiveness.
There is an almost endless number of ways medical negligence can cause the failure of treatment, but the common factor amongst all of them is that they were avoidable.
How Can We Help?
The process for claiming compensation for treatment failure due to negligence can be long and convoluted. We appreciate that, whether you are claiming as the result of your treatment, or on behalf of a loved one who is unable to claim for themselves, that it is a stressful time so The Medical Negligence Experts will use all our skill and experience to make it as streamlined as possible.
The first step is an initial assessment. We will talk to you about your situation, refer to an independent medical expert where necessary, and advise whether your claim has a high chance of success. If so, we will help you to build the evidence you need to prove negligence which can involve obtaining copies of your medical records and having other medical professionals assess your current physical and mental condition.
We will submit the evidence to the care provider with the request they acknowledge their responsibility for your injury and compensate you accordingly. Fair compensation can include payment for loss of earnings and any ongoing rehabilitation or equipment you will need to live your life to its full potential.
The majority of personal injury claims settle at this point. However, if the respondent does not agree negligence has been involved or does not offer what we feel is a fair and acceptable payment, we will refer the matter to the courts for their ruling.
