The head is especially susceptible to injury, and damage to this part of the body can be as devastating for an individual’s family as it is for the victim. From minor concussions to fatal brain damage, there are many different types of head injury that can leave a person with long-term problems, perhaps even needing round-the-clock care.

If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury that may have been caused by the negligence of a medical professional, our solicitors have the expertise to help you make a claim for compensation. Call us on 0161 928 3848, or fill in the contact form on the right-hand side of the page and we will get back to you.

 

Head injury clinical negligence

When you are admitted to hospital, you expect to receive the right kind of care to help you recover from a condition. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and patients are often left suffering due to a surgeon, doctor or nurse’s mistake. Examples of medical negligence include:

 

  • Delays in diagnosis or treatment
  • Failure to diagnose or provide suitable treatment
  • Errors during surgery
  • Rough handling, resulting in skull fractures
  • Anaesthetic mistakes

 

Failure to advise

As well as giving accurate diagnosis and treatment, it is also a medical professional’s duty to explain all the options you have and provide you with key information regarding a procedure, including the risks involved, what can go wrong and the consequences if something does happen.

Once all the options have been clearly explained to you, your doctor must only go ahead with a procedure if you have given consent to the treatment. If consent is not given, or an adequate consultation is not performed, this is also regarded as medical negligence.
