Medical mistakes can range from a simple failure to diagnose a fracture through to an injury at birth which has caused severe brain damage. However, for a claim to succeed, it will be necessary to prove :
- The healthcare professional owed a duty of care
- The healthcare professional breached that duty of care (negligence)
- The breach of duty caused an injury/adverse outcome
- This has resulted in Damage or other losses
These legal tests can often be very complex, which is why it is crucial to instruct Lawyers who specialise in clinical negligence to investigate a claim of this nature.
