If you have suffered an illness or injury as a result of medical negligence from a healthcare professional in Liverpool, a medical negligence claim may be your best option.
Medical professionals owe a duty of care to their patients. They must discharge this duty with a reasonable degree of skill and competence as expected of the average practitioner of the profession under the same or similar circumstances. But mistakes happen sometimes that directly impact the patient’s health, leading to pain, longer recovery times and, in extreme cases, death. If a healthcare provider has breached his/her duty of care, you may be entitled to compensation that can help you on the path to recovery.
However, medical negligence claims are one of the most complex legal procedures. It is not easy to know where to start and the process can be drawn-out. Thus, it is highly recommended that you seek legal advice and representation from specialist medical negligence solicitors to boost your chance of success. Finding the right support can go a long way to helping you win your claim and find the closure you deserve.

More often than not, medical professionals ensure their diagnosis is done accurately as this informs their decision going forward. However, when a medical professional fails to diagnose a patient’s health condition within a reasonable amount of time, the patient suffers. If the patient’s condition is very serious, delayed diagnosis can be life-threatening. Health conditions that would have been effectively treated may worsen and could reduce the patient’s chance of survival.
Like delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis can be devastating. It describes when a healthcare professional incorrectly identifies a patient’s health condition. This diagnostic error can set a patient along a wrong treatment path, causing such one to suffer while the original condition deteriorates. It wastes treatment time that could have been used to help the patient recover.
Medication error describes a situation where a patient uses medication inappropriately due to prescription or dispensing errors. For instance, you may be given the wrong medicine or receive wrong dosage advice. Each year, there are more than 200 million medication errors in the NHS alone; it is the single most preventable cause of harm to patients.
Whether necessary or elective, all surgeries carry an element of risk. However, some risks can be prevented altogether. For instance, if a healthcare provider leaves a surgical instrument behind in a patient’s body and this causes serious damage, the victim can make a surgical error medical negligence claim.
This happens when a mother or baby suffers avoidable injuries during the childbirth process. This may include failure to identify and treat a serious condition during childbirth or even the development of avoidable complications after birth.
This covers any type of avoidable injury directly caused by, or worsened by a dental health professional. For instance, if a dentist fails to manage tooth decay competently, the patient may be able to pursue a dental negligence claim.
Nursing homes and elderly care homes owe a duty of care to all residents to ensure their comfort and safety. If the care given to your loved one in a care home falls below expected standards and results in an injury, illness, or even worsens their condition, you may be able to make a care home negligence claim.
If you have experienced any of the above or would like to find out whether you have a valid claim for compensation with your current condition, you can reach out to us for helpful advice.
