What is medical negligence?
Medical negligence in the UK, also known as clinical negligence, occurs when a healthcare professional, such as a doctor or nurse, fails to provide the standard of care that would be considered reasonable and acceptable by their peers in the same field. This can lead to preventable injuries or harm to the patient. Examples of medical negligence include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication errors, and birth injuries. If an individual believes that they have suffered as a result of medical negligence, they may be entitled to claim compensation.
