What is medical negligence?

Medical negligence happens when a medical worker or healthcare professional makes a mistake or acts in a way that damages your health or wellbeing.

A medical negligence claim can mean a clinical negligence claim, dental negligence claim or hospital negligence claim. Some examples include:

  • preventable errors caused by simple oversights or minor mistakes (also known as never events)
  • inaccurate diagnosis
  • incorrect treatments, medicines, advice and prescriptions
  • delay in diagnosis
  • failure to refer to a specialist
