We put our total trust in the medical profession – we expect them to undertake their business with, care, attention and diligence. In the great majority of cases, 99.9% of the time, they do just that. However, there are occasions when they fail to keep up their normally high standards and we suffer as a result.
When a medical practitioner fails to meet the normally high standards of their profession, the consequences for us are serious. Incorrectly performed medical procedures can cause severe injury and impairment, and have long lasting consequences for the victim and their family.
