Hospital Negligence Claims
Understanding hospital negligence compensation
Has your stay in hospital left you in a worse physical or mental condition than you were prior to being admitted? Do you feel you received care that was below an acceptable standard and want to know if you can be compensated for your pain and distress? At InjuryLawyers4U we can advise you on your next best course of action.
The right level of care
A stay in hospital can be a stressful experience and we all desire the best quality care to ensure we return to health as soon as possible. Naturally, we place our complete trust in the health professionals attending to us and take for granted that they will perform their duties with the highest level of care and diligence. In most cases diagnoses and procedures are dealt with competently and we return to life as normal. However, mistakes can happen, and when they occur due to negligence by hospital staff the consequences for the patient and their family can be long-term and severe.
What is hospital negligence?
Examples of hospital negligence can include:
- An injury caused by a mistake made by a doctor or nurse during a hospital stay or during surgery
- A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis caused by a health professional failing to follow correct procedures when diagnosing the patient
- Mistakes made when prescribing or dispensing medicine
- Negligent care which can be linked to later complications
You may also be entitled to compensation for hospital negligence for errors caused by omission. An example of this would be correctly diagnosing a condition but then failing to prescribe the treatment the patient needed which in turn led to complications.
