Receiving medical treatment can be a daunting for any patient. However, whilst we understand the trials and tribulations faced by our doctors, no one expects to leave the hospital worse off than when they came in.

Sadly, the statistics for medical negligence have continued rise with the victims left to suffer from emotional, physical and financial burdens.
What is medical negligence?
Medical negligence is the result of a medical professional failing to meet the accepted standard of care. This applies to all aspects of the medical field whether they are a doctor or a nurse, they have a standard of medical care to uphold. By failing to meet this standard, the patient could have sustained an injury or come to harm in the process. During the investigation into whether the patient was a victim of medical negligence, the standard of care is used to confirm whether the medical professional committed malpractice in comparison to how a medical professional should have acted.
How do you know if you have been a victim of medical negligence?
If you or a loved one believe you may have been the victim of medical negligence, discuss your concerns with Wafer Phillips. We will be able to inform you how we can assist.
When it comes to medical negligence claims, it is unlikely the medical professional will admit to wrongdoings on their part, and therefore it falls to the patient and their loved ones to determine whether the medical professional deviated from the accepted standard of care.
If you or a loved one has experienced or witnessed first-hand something that has caused concern regarding medical treatment, you should write down all instances in case the patient sustains an injury or comes to harm.
