Negligence is best understood as having failed to do something that could have reasonably been expected under the circumstances. Examples of negligence can include misdiagnosis, prescription of incorrect treatments or medicines, or carrying out procedures incorrectly, but whatever the cause, it takes an experienced professional to establish whether you have grounds for compensation.
First4SeriousInjury specialises in misdiagnosis (in particular stroke or cancer), pregnancy and birth-related claims, such as cerebral palsy or meconium aspiration syndrome, and hospital negligence, including surgery claims.
One of the first difficulties you might face if you’ve been the victim of clinical negligence can be the self-doubt that occurs in questioning an authority such as a doctor. Often those who’ve suffered medical negligence are reluctant to believe that they’ve suffered anything more than a misfortune. Many people feel uncomfortable questioning the motives or actions of professionals who dedicate their career to helping others. First4SeriousInjury has a team of experienced and supportive professionals who can guide you through this self-doubt, and support you through the analysis of often complex information to help you establish whether you’ve been the victim of negligence.
