Medical negligence is really a legal concept that requires healthcare professionals to provide certain standards of care to patients (duty of care). These specialists range from surgeons, consultants,doctors, specialists, obstetricians, nurses, therapists and other types of medical personnel. When healthcare providers fail to uphold reasonable standards of care for their given profession or medical area, or when they exhibit negligence while treating patients, they may be held responsible for the damages patients suffer.
While medical negligence claims may seem simple on the face of it, they pose several legal difficulties. One of the largest barriers in proceeding with these cases may be the fact that all patients accept some risk when undergoing medical procedures or treatment. Although there’s been incredible progress in medical science and technology, modern innovations have yet to avoid all potential for human error or even to alleviate medical professionals from all liability. The evaluation of the chance involved can often be very subjective and difficult to judge.
This means that, while risks are unavoidable, there are still departures from established standards of care, regulatory violations, many types of preventable injuries and damages, and several instances of medical negligence for which health care providers can, and must, be held accountable. Medical Negligence claims are also complicated by the technical medical information involved, which explains why Scothouselaw in Cork works together with experts to build the strongest possible medical negligence cases.
