Medical negligence occurs when a healthcare practitioner who holds themselves out as a professional with unique abilities fails to utilise their expertise, causing injury to the patient properly. Medical negligence can include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, and medication mistakes. We believe that any form of medical negligence should not be condoned, and it is important to hold those responsible accountable for their actions.
We have successfully represented our clients in complex medical negligence cases before the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Council (KMPDC) and in the High Court of Kenya in a bid to ensure that justice is served and they receive the compensation they deserve. This will equally serve as a lesson and a caution to the medical professionals who do not treat patients with the proper amount of quality care, resulting in serious injury or death.
