Medical Negligence Lawyer
The practice of a medical negligence lawyer is to provide legal assistance where a person has incurred injuries as a result of medical negligence. To pursue a medical negligence case, one must understand what constitutes medical negligence. Medical negligence happens when a medical professional’s level of care and treatment does not meet the appropriate standard of practice. Such cases may include treatment delays, plastic surgery malpractice, prescription errors, dental malpractice, anaesthesia errors, and surgical errors to name a few common cases. In the event of medical malpractice, you have a legal right to look at your own medical records, as well as use them to build a case. It should be noted that a successful outcome is receiving compensation for your injury. If you wish only to bring attention to the negligence to protect other against similar practices, you can lay a complaint with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
