The United Kingdom has earned a reputation for providing one of the world’s best healthcare services. However, despite all the regulations, there are some instances when a medical negligence can occur.

  • Providing a delay in diagnosis
  • Giving the wrong diagnoses
  • Implementing the wrong treatment
  • Surgical errors (those which could have been easily avoided)
  • Failure to offer treatment
  • Birth injuries
  • Error in prescriptions
  • Lack of consent before performing medical operations.

    1. The time duration. According to the regulations imposed by the Scottish Law, you can submit a medical negligence claim up until three years after the accident has passed.
    2. The circumstances of the accident can also play a role in determining the settlement amount.
    3. The presence of evidence to support the claim, along with the time duration for evidence collection can have an affect on your case.
    4. The nature of injuries.

    You can submit a medical negligence claim if the negligence took place within the last three years and if the suffered injury was not your fault. The team at Wallace Legal can assist you with acquiring compensation for both general and special damages.
