Medical Negligence

Have you suffered as a result of treatment from a medical professional?

Medical negligence is the improper, unskilled or negligent treatment of a patient by a physician, dentist, nurse or other health care professional.

Medical negligence can be:

  • failing to diagnose a condition or delaying diagnosis
  • failing to provide the appropriate treatment
  • failing to perform surgery with reasonable care and skill
  • failing to report correctly on test results
  • failing to provide post-operative care with reasonable care and skill.
