Specialist Nursing Negligence Solicitors in Portsmouth, Havant and Liverpool

Swain & Co Solicitors' specialist medical negligence lawyers handle nursing negligence claims, securing compensation for a variety of medical mistakes and errors which have caused serious injury to our clients.

Nursing negligence can lead to damage mentally, physically or both, and this can have devastating impacts on the lives of patients.

Examples of nursing negligence that can cause a patient to suffer injury include:

  • Failure to prevent falls
  • Failure to prevent or properly treat bed sores
  • Failure to mobilise patient
  • Medication and/or document errors
  • Failure to check correct blood used
  • Monitoring a patient and recording observations inappropriately
  • Failing to follow established procedures correctly
  • Failing to call for specialist help (including delay)
  • Internal bleeding not detected
  • Not helping a patient to use bathroom
  • Failing to recognise limitations e.g. performing procedure without proper training

Nursing Negligence ClaimsNursing negligence occurs when acts are performed which are deemed to be below a competence level expected of someone in their position.

The consequences of nursing negligence include the staff member, or members, being suspended, or fired or loss of license.

But the consequences for injured patients can be much more. Our clients often tell us that they want to prevent the same mistakes and injury happening to someone else, hence why they want to bring a medical negligence claim.

All too often the medical profession close up and deny wrongdoing, so medical negligence expertise is needed to get the information and present the medical mistakes to the NHS Trust to highlight how and why our client has been injured.

Medical negligence can be intentional or unintentional, occurring for many different reasons.
