If you or a member of your family believe you have received a healthcare diagnosis or treatment that led to physical or psychological harm, the first questions you probably asked were, “Why was this allowed to happen to me?” and “What went wrong?”
Seeking answers for when something goes wrong requires:
- Specialist knowledge of the medical and legal issues.
- Sympathetic and sensitive understanding of how everyone involved is affected.
The Most Common Types of Clinical / Medical Negligence are:
- A delay or failure to diagnose or treat a condition
- Inappropriate treatment
- Failure to obtain valid consent
Clinical / Medical Misdiagnosis
There are TWO main types of clinical / medical misdiagnosis:
- Failure to recognise symptoms and /or to diagnose for a specific injury or condition, despite attending consultations / examinations for possible associated health problems.
- An error of judgement over the cause of a physical injury or condition, or mistakenly diagnosing a condition or illness, which is not present.
Prescription or medication errors include those involving incorrect drugs, dosage or patient allergies / reactions between multiple medicines, pills and other treatment types. While many of the errors may only have short term effects, some do result in serious or even fatal injury either through use of the wrong drug/dose or from a delay in receiving the required treatment.
Time limit for making a claim
A claim for clinical negligence must start within THREE years from:
- The date of your injury, or
- The date when you first discovered your injury was the result of an action you now believe was negligent.
