What is Medical Negligence?

Medical or clinical negligence is defined when a caregiver or medical professional provides patients with treatment or care that falls below a satisfactory standard. Medical negligence cases can be exceptionally severe and can lead to long term permanent damages to the patient’s health.

When a medical professional does not adhere to the correct procedure and health and safety standards, and a patient experiences injuries or damage to their health, they are eligible to claim compensation for their traumatic experiences. 

If you have been a patient who faced medical negligence, we recommend that you contact one of our advisors and start a successful claim now. We understand that starting a claim can be challenging, this is why, here at Belmont solicitors, we will ensure to stand by you, throughout your entire legal process.

What types of medical negligence can I claim for?

  • Misdiagnosis. 
  • Delayed diagnosis.
  • Cosmetic negligence. 
  • Dental negligence. 
  • Care home negligence.
  • Incorrect surgery, including performing surgery on the wrong body part.

How much compensation will I get? 

It is incredibly challenging to determine how much compensation you may get for your damages; this is because all cases vary tremendously and there is a range of factors that have a significant impact on the amount of compensation you may receive; these include: 

  • The severity of the medical negligence case, and how long the injuries lasted. 
  • Cost of treatment of the treatment you needed after your injuries. These can include expenses for physiotherapy or psychotherapy. 
  • The extent of time missed off work due to recovery from the injuries you have experienced.

If you have experienced medical negligence, contact our solicitors now at Belmont solicitors to start a successful claim. 

Duty of Care 

Medical practitioners and professionals have a duty of care to take care of their patients in the best possible way. A newly qualified medical practitioner is expected to provide the same duty of care as any other medical professional with more experience. Duty of care examples include: 

  • Investigating complaints and symptoms properly. 
  • Referral to specialists in a good time. 
  • Providing the correct treatment. 
  • Providing the correct treatment without delay. 

If you have experienced negligence due to the medical professional not fulfilling their duty of care, contact Belmont solicitors now. 

How long do I have to claim for medical negligence? 

In Scotland, you can claim for medical negligence for up to three years after the occurrence or the date of knowledge of your injuries.

If you are under the age of 16, this time limit does not apply; your parent or guardian can claim at any moment until the age of 16 in Scotland. After the child turns 16, you can claim up to three years from their 16th birthday. 

There as some exceptions during which the time limit does not apply, for example, due to health or mental health issues.

    • My accident happened right before covid, so there were loads of delays and even a hand over in solicitors. With all the interferences, Belmont never let me down. They stayed in touch and stayed very honest throughout the whole thing.

    • The team at Belmont has been great. They went through the information with me as often as I needed to understand all the legal bits and feel comfortable proceeding. I was given an update as soon as it was available, which meant I didn’t have to constantly call - which in my experience is not always the case with solicitors. Overall very happy with the service received.

    • Good service. Kept me informed about my personal injury claim - which took about a year to settle, which was due to the other party in the accident's insurer going into liquidation, but they kept at it and eventually succeded in getting the payment. Would definately recommend.
