What is Medical Negligence?
Posted on 10th March 2018
In an era where the NHS record increasing payouts for acts of medical negligence, if you, or a relative have been unfortunate enough to suffer negligence at the hands of the NHS, then you need the best medical negligence solicitors you can instruct. Figures for 2017, will show the increase in payouts are down to errors by NHS staff at what is arguably the most important time; at childbirth. MG Legal medical negligence solicitors Manchester, agree with Peter Walsh, chief executive of charity Action against Medical Accidents, in that the NHS was spending too much on litigation, fighting cases that they could not (and indeed, a spokesman for MG Legal solicitors who deal with medical negligence will say, should not) be defending.
The Medical Protection Society has said that the costs of accident injury solicitors are spiralling, but when 10 percent of the medical negligence payouts in 2016/2017 were as a result of negligent acts or omissions on the part of the NHS, that left babies brain damaged at birth, amounts to 50% of the total value of the claims, MG Legal, solicitors who deal with medical negligence, will say that the issues are somewhat narrower than the proposed cost-cutting (for solicitors who deal with medical negligence) would suggest, and that the legal costs of a person instructing a law firm Preston, should not be reduced, but that the problem lies closer to home, and within the NHS.
Reports, following inquests, have shown that proper training in the use of heart monitors is not availed to midwives- the intrinsically linked risk of this being that babies are put at the very real risk of brain injury.
