Clinical negligence, also known as medical negligence is a term that describes when someone has suffered unnecessarily at the hands of a medical professional.
You may be wondering precisely what kinds of professionals are liable in clinical negligence, if this is you then you’re in luck because we’re about to dispel the myths surrounding who you can make a claim against once and for all.
Most people erroneously believe that you can only sue a surgeon, a doctor and other main medical professionals when it comes to making a claim.
Truthfully this is nobodies fault, the information isn’t made widely known and you have to do some digging to find out whether or not you can make a claim against a certain professional.
Clinical negligence is a new term, which is supposed to make this clearer. It essentially means that anyone who practices within a clinic of some kind is liable to the laws that surround medical negligence.
- Dentists & Dental Assistants
- Medical Consultants
- Plastic Surgeons
and many more.
The point is that it’s important to know that there isn’t just one single type of medical professional who is liable in a clinical negligence claim.
