Medical negligence is a legal concept that requires health care professionals to provide certain standards of care to patients (duty of care). These professionals can include surgeons, consultants,doctors, specialists, obstetricians, nurses, therapists and other types of medical personnel. When health care providers fail to uphold reasonable standards of care for their given profession or medical area, or when they exhibit negligence while treating patients, they can be held liable for the damages patients suffer.
While medical negligence claims may seem simple on the face of it, they pose a number of legal difficulties. One of the largest barriers in proceeding with these cases is the fact that all patients accept some risk when undergoing medical procedures or treatment. Although there has been incredible progress in medical science and technology, modern innovations have yet to prevent all potential for human error or to alleviate medical professionals from all liability. The evaluation of the risk involved can sometimes be very subjective and difficult to evaluate.
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 many 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 is why Scothouselaw in Cork works with experts to build the strongest possible medical negligence cases.
