What is the meaning of medical negligence?
Medical negligence takes place when a patient receives care from a medical professional that is substandard and causes some degree of injury or harm. This could mean a previous injury or medical condition worsened due to poor quality care, or a new injury or illness presented after the substandard care was received. Medical negligence comes in several different forms, but all cases of substandard care that fall under this definition involve a failure to provide reasonable care along with harm suffered by the patient. Our experts will advise you whether the standard of care fell short enough to be considered negligent and therefore whether you are able to make a claim.
