What is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence is a term that describes when a healthcare professional fails in their duty of care. Whether the medical professional is an NHS staff or works privately, if you feel substandard level of care has caused you or your loved one injury or exacerbated a pre-existing condition, you may be entitled to medical negligence claims in Coventry.
To successfully make a claim for medical negligence in Coventry, you must be able to prove that:
- The medical professional owed you a duty of care;
- The medical professional breached that duty of care;
- The breach of duty was directly responsible for the harm you suffered.
It is important to note, however, that you cannot make claims for medical negligence compensation simply because your GP, doctor or health professional acted negligently. If the negligence does not cause you an injury, make your condition worse or affect your life expectancy, you may not be entitled to compensation as there is no damage.
