What is Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence refers to medical professionals failing in their duty of care to you or making mistakes. Which then leads to injury or further exacerbating an existing injury or condition. Medical negligence can happen in a number of ways such as incorrect treatment, surgical mistakes, delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis. If you think you’ve have been a victim of medical malpractice the first thing you should do is seek out the advice of a solicitor.

At Salmons, we offer a FREE initial consultation meeting where we will discuss the details of your claim and how much compensation you might be eligible for. We would always advise you to contact us as early as possible when the details are as fresh in your mind as possible.
