Medical Negligence Claims.
Does anyone know anything about medical negligence?
My family is at the beginning of a possible negligence case. My brother was taken by ambulance because he was taken very ill with a headache and vomiting. He was kepts in overnight and diagnosed with migraine. Even though it was obvious he was very ill, he was send home. I even argued with the staff he wasn't fit to go. However I was told he has been cleared to leave. So he has to leave.
He collapsed once home and we had to call another ambulance. This time he was taken to a different hospital. A ct scan found he had suffered a stroke. Result is he has lost most if his eyesight.
I made a complaint and have just received the completed investigation report. It clearly states mistakes were made and guidlines were not followed. I am awaiting direction from a solicitor as to what can be done. Has anyone any experience with things like this?
Any advice you could give would be appreciated. Thank you.
