Clinical or medical negligence is when a doctor or healthcare professional provides substandard care which results in an injury, or causes an existing condition to get worse. It can occur when a medical professional fails to diagnose, fails to treat or even provides the wrong treatment to a patient. Negligence can happen at any stage in the care process, from diagnosis through to treatment and surgery.

£70,000 settlement for rogue doctor’s negligence

Our client underwent a surgical procedure by rogue doctor Rod Irvine in 2006. During the operation, Irvine failed to repair bowel incisions, which caused further complications to our client. Irvine was already facing hundreds of claims from previous patients. However, we won the case and negotiated a settlement of £70,000.
