Medical negligence FAQs


Medical negligence is a complicated topic, and there are many questions involved in every case. Was there a chance of complications? How exact a science is medicine, and do we have the right to expect the right result every time? Or has our situation been made worse?

Sometimes it can be very simple - was the correct procedure carried out, or was there an obvious clerical error?

And as expected, medical negligence can affect everything from simple procedures to life-threatening diseases and operations and non-necessary plastic surgery.
