How do you prove medical negligence? 

MG Legal’s specialist medical negligence solicitors are well versed in assessing this type of case. Sometimes the negligence is obvious, say the surgeon treated your left knee, instead of the right, or if the expected complication was not written on your consent form when you signed it. Sometimes it is less obvious, at which point it is necessary to obtain an expert medical opinion. 
 
As per the Bolam Test, the deciding factor is the opinion of someone similarly qualified. So, if your claim stems from an orthopaedic procedure, an orthopaedic surgeon would be asked to examine your medical records, speak to you and to prepare a report saying what was and was not reasonable to do in that situation. If, say, options A and B would have both been acceptable routes of treatment, but your doctor chose option C and as a result, your recovery was delayed or did not happen properly because of this, the report would likely state that your treatment was negligence.
