Got a Claim Bridge McFarland Solicitors


Medical Negligence

Cases of Medical Negligence have been increasingly high in profile but many people don’t really understand what counts as Medical Negligence and if they have a claim. Yorkshire Coast Radio have teamed up with Bridge McFarland solicitors to answer some common questions and for those of you that have suffered as a result of medical negligence - to help you find your voice!

What is medical negligence?

Medical Negligence is when a medical practitioner such as a doctor, nurse, midwife, dentist or an institutional health provider breaches his or its duty of care to you and you are injured as a result of that breach.


How can I find out if medical treatment was negligent?


 During the investigations of your clinical negligence claim we will be required to obtain disclosure of all relevant medical records - both hospital and GP - in the manner set out in the pre-action protocols. Once all of the relevant medical records have been received they will be considered on a preliminary basis. They will then be sent to an independent expert nurse who will index and paginate the records to ensure that they are in some semblance of order. 


Can I make a medical negligence claim on behalf of my child?

Yes. Only, if you are the mother, father or parental guardian.


Can I make a medical negligence claim on behalf of someone who has died?

Yes. Only, if you are the spouse of the Deceased or Executor of the Estate.
