Suffered from Professional Negligence?

Every day people up and down the country are consulting professionals for the paid use of their skill. Whether it is a surveyor, an architect, an accountant or indeed a lawyer who possesses such a specialised expertise, all owe a duty of care to provide a service according to the accepted professional standard. Professional negligence- or ‘professional liability’ as it is more accurately termed- arises where that duty is breached in such a way as to cause damage to be suffered by the client. A successful claim entitles the client to financial compensation from the negligent professional.

Is your dentist insured against accidents?

Dental negligence claims | Man receiving dental treatment


Picture the scene; you’re joining a new dental practice, just before you go for your first appointment you search for your dentist on the General Dental Council. You find your dentist is registered and an address is there on screen to reassure you that all is above board and legitimate.

Well that’s ok then, right? If anything goes wrong, you have the reassurance that your dentist is registered with the General Dental Council and that offers you some protection.

Why hospital maternity units must improve

Doctors Hospital Corridor Nurse Pushing Gurney Stretcher Bed


We have been instructed on a number of cases after families have experienced the devastating loss of a new born child as a result of a mis-managed labour and/or pregnancy.

In the Daily Mail on the 1 November 2012 they reported on a sad story where a mother had fought a two year battle with Milton Keynes Hospital when her baby girl was wrongly certified as being stillborn.    In fact her daughter was born via an emergency caesarean section and passed away after only 32 minutes.

This very sad story came when the hospital’s maternity unit was still reeling from criticism into the death of another baby, 4 months earlier.

When an Inquest was finally arranged, the Coroner concluded in his narrative verdict, that had the hospital acted appropriate, by carrying out the emergency caesarean section earlier, their baby girl would have survived on the balance of probabilities.

Following this the Coroner at Milton Keynes Coroner’s Court has order managers to report all stillbirths and neonatal deaths for further investigation.  The hospital has also apologised for the distress caused to this family.

This story highlights significant failings at Milton Keynes Maternity Unit at that time.  We hope this has led to massive changes within the hospital and raised awareness, leading to fewer avoidable neonatal death cases in the future.

You can find a link to the story here:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2226025/They-said-I-insane-I-knew-baby-alive-Mothers-year-battle-hospital-blunders.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490
