While most times, medical procedures are conducted without issues, occasionally mistakes can be made by someone responsible for your care, which could have caused harm. Some types of clinical negligence that could occur are:
- Surgical mistakes, which could cause an internal injury, infections or excessive scarring.
- Not getting your full consent for treatment.
- Not briefing you on the risks involved in a procedure.
- Delay in spotting conditions, which are due to the professional’s negligence.
- Prescribed the incorrect medication.
- Medical misdiagnosis, or late diagnosis of a condition.
