Medical practitioners have a duty of care towards their patients. A breach of that duty of care can occur in a variety of circumstances from a failure to warn a patient of the dangers involved in surgery, to a failure to correctly investigate or diagnose an illness.
Medical negligence can occur in a wide range of circumstances, however, the main ingredient is that there was a failure by the professional or healthcare facility to exercise a reasonable degree of skill and care. If it is found that a medical professional has failed to provide this, and you have suffered loss and damage as a result of this failure, then you may be entitled to damages for that loss.
