Doctor negligence is one of the most serious forms of clinical negligence compensation claims in the personal injury sector, there is a special need for attention for any cases of this type because it involves an individual placed in a position of trust with a strong care duty who should execute their role and standard of care with the greatest provision so as to avoid undesirable side effects such as delayed diagnosis, serious injury, and in extreme cases death due to medical malpractice.
Some common examples of Doctor negligence are as follows:
1) Cancer misdiagnosis – Doctors often misdiagnose cancer as a condition thinking it is something else (medical misdiagnosis).
2) Medical accident – Doctor negligence also includes situations where there has been a medical error or accident which has caused injury.
3) Medical malpractice – often doctors act in such a way which breaches their duty , prescription error claims are also possible.
