People We Have Helped
How Do I Claim for Medical Negligence?
To make an armed forces medical negligence claim, it needs to be proven that the standard of care provided by one or more military medical personnel fell short of what you’d reasonably expect, and that you suffered negligence as a result.
Common medical mistakes include:
- Poor record keeping
- Failing to administer medication
- Not performing surgery to the required standard
- Misdiagnosing a condition or diagnosing it too late
- Failure to communicate adequately or at all with the Chain of Command, leading to inappropriate physical demands in the course of duties, leading to an aggravation of the injury
Mistakes made by military doctors, medical officers or nurses can have severe consequences for service personnel, such as:
- Physical disability
- Psychological damage, such as anxiety, depression and PTSD
- Existing injuries being made worse
