Medical Negligence Claims
A medical negligence claim may arise if you have suffered a injury or ongoing pain as a direct result of medical mistreatment or a lack of practicioner care. These types of claims are also sometimes referred to as 'clinical negligence' or a ‘medical accident’.
At Taylor and Buchalter we are very experienced in handling a wide variety of medical case, both large and small.
In common with all personal injury cases, the success of a medical negligence case depends upon establishing fault resulting in injury, loss or damage to a patient, on the part of a hospital, and / or medical staff. If you believe that you may have suffered from medical negligence you should obtain copies of all of your relevant medical records from the Hospital and/or Doctor. In order to bring a case for medical negligence it is necessary to have a report from a Doctor which states that the medical treatment received did not accord with proper professional standards.
To obtain a report we instruct a Company in the United Kingdom who refer the case to an appropriate member of their panel of medical experts. The U.K. Medical expert will require a copy of your Hospital notes, scans, assessments and results. We will provide him or her with a statement from you and an outline of the issues which arise. The U.K. expert will provide a report as to whether or not the treatment received was in accord with prevailing professional standards.
