Clinical Negligence Claims
What is Clinical Negligence?
The services of the medical profession both enhance and save lives on a daily basis. However occasionally the professional involved can make an error in the treatment of the patient, which could have disastrous health consequences. Regardless of whether the mistake results from human error, procedural failure or mechanical fault, if it appears to have been unnecessary or preventable, the individual concerned may be able to pursue a claim. A claim such as this is known as a Clinical or a Medical Negligence claim.
