Establishing a Basis That Medical Negligence Has Occurred

 

A number of factors need to be proven in order to establish a case that medical negligence has occurred by a medical professional or medical practitioner. You will need to provide evidence that treatment provided was not up to a standard that would be reasonably expected. You must also prove that injuries sustained due to this negligence only occurred because negligence occurred. There are however some cases such as misdiagnosis or delays in diagnosis of diseases where you will not need to prove that injuries were caused solely because of negligence by the practitioner. 

At a certain point during your claim, you will need to provide a medical report from a medical expert. This helps support your claim in terms of arguing that negligence occurred and helps to prove that the treatment received was not in line with the view of a responsible body of medical opinion. If you cannot prove this – your medical practitioner will have a defence against your claim. 

If you require further information on the process of making a medical negligence claim or need advice on whether you have the grounds to make a claim, get in touch today.

 

Restrictions When Making a Claim & Financial Compensation

 

Typically you need to issue Court Proceedings within 3 years of negligence occuring or the time in which you would reasonably have known that negligence has occurred. In some cases, the time constraints in terms of making a claim may be waived by the Court. Family members are also able to make a claim on behalf of a deceased family member – regardless of whether their death was due to the negligence that occurred.

It’s important to keep a record of all financial costs that have occurred directly due to your injuries such as damage to clothing, costs for care, hospital fees or transportation fees for example.
