Medical accidents leading to a clinical negligence claim
There are various types of medical mistakes made the consequences of which can be huge and have a significant impact. Medical accidents can be caused by an act (amputation of the wrong leg) or an omission (failure to diagnose). By its very nature medical treatment is inherently risky, some outcomes are a natural consequence of the intervention and do not amount to negligence. To bring a successful Clinical Negligence case you have to show that the actions of one or more of the clinicians who treated you fell below an acceptable standard. That their treatment was below the ordinary skill of a competent professional in his or her field and that no reasonable, well informed, and competent member of the profession would have made that error.
Establishing medical causation for a negligence claim
If the clinicians conduct fell below the relevant standard you then have to show that the injuries you have suffered were “caused” by that negligence. This is called medical causation.
Often expert evidence is required from clinicians within the same discipline who can comment on the standard of care received and if that fell below the relevant standard and on medical causation i.e. did the negligence cause your injury.
