Paramedic negligence occurs when a paramedic doesn’t treat you with competence. As the first healthcare professional to treat most accidents and emergencies, the choices of a paramedic can be extremely important. Paramedic negligence can be a serious example of medical negligence.
There are many different examples of paramedic negligence which can seriously impact your health. These can include:
- Delays in Arriving at The Hospital.
- Failing to Arrive at the Incident.
- Misdiagnosis of Conditions.
- Failure to Medicate the Patient at the Scene, if Required.
Paramedic negligence can cause a range of serious injuries. These can include:
- Brain Damage, following Airway, Breathing and Circulation (ABC) Negligence.
- Spinal Cord Injuries Following Incorrect Stabilisation.
- Blood Loss from Poorly Treated Wounds.
- Allergic Reactions from Incorrect Medication.
- Tourniquet Injuries.
If your paramedics have attempted to move you, and you’ve suffered as a result, this is an example of negligence. This can include anything from bruises to broken bones in some cases. As such, paramedic manual handling injuries are worth claiming for.
It is possible for medical negligence to result in serious injuries during childbirth. This can affect both the mother and the baby. If you were attended by paramedics during childbirth, and you’ve suffered an injury, you may be eligible to claim compensation.
Paramedic and medical negligence can, unfortunately, cause a range of potential birth injuries. These injuries can include:
- Anaesthesia Complications.
- Failure to Recognise or Treat Breathing Difficulties.
- Improper Resuscitation Causing Injury.
- Excessive Force or Improper Use of Tools.
- Delayed Delivery.
- Heating Pads/Blanket Burns.
If you’ve suffered an injury due to a paramedic using outdated equipment, then you can still hold that paramedic responsible. In these cases, however, it is more common for the claim to be made against the hospital which equipped the paramedic.
In most cases, paramedics and emergency responders cannot be faulted in their commitment to their patients. However, occasionally – either by act or omission – paramedics can display negligence towards their compensation. In these cases, medical negligence can be extremely serious.
Medical negligence can be fatal to all kinds of patients. Ineffective treatment can be particularly dangerous to the elderly, or those involved in serious accidents such as traffic collisions. If your loved one has died following medical negligence, contact Tylers Solicitors today.
It is possible for medical negligence to result in a variety of long-term injuries. These could be long-term chronic pain, or even paralysis. If you’ve been forced to live with the results of a negligent paramedic, get in touch with Tylers today.
You have up to 3 years to claim following your medical negligence experienced. This should be plenty of time to decide if you want to make a claim. It can also be long enough to understand the impact of any long-term injuries.
If you have a do not resuscitate order (DNR), which paramedics ignore, then this is another example of medical negligence. DNR compensation claims are rare but can be made if you have made your DNR wishes expressly clear to the medical professional.
If you’ve suffered any kind of injury due to clinical negligence, then you are eligible to claim. Simply contact our experienced team today. We’ll help you to understand if you have a viable claim and how much you should be claiming for.
The amount of compensation that you receive will be dependent on the severity of your injuries. Long-term injuries, for example, are worth more than short-term issues. To make your medical negligence injury compensation claims, get in touch with Tylers Solicitors today.

Why Are Paramedic Negligence Injuries So Serious?
Injuries caused by clinical negligence are extremely serious for several reasons. In many cases, they can be much more serious than minor medical negligence issues.
Firstly, when a paramedic is called, there is someone suffering from medical distress. In most cases, that causes the patient to be in a weak or vulnerable state. Therefore, any medical negligence can cause injuries which are more serious than they might be to a health individual. This is also true when considering paramedic manual handling injuries, which can easily result in broken bones and worse.
When the paramedics arrive on the scene, there is going to be a medical emergency. As such, failing to treat this medical emergency quickly and efficiently can lead to serious health issues. Negligence relating to the treatment of a medical condition can cause the symptoms to grow worse. In some cases, this negligence can even lead to fatalities.
Paramedics are well-trained and professional medical experts who can deliver a range of emergency treatments. However, they are only human and can make mistakes. These mistakes can cost people their lives. At the very least, paramedic negligence is likely to have a serious effect on the patient’s long-term health.
How Much Compensation Are My Paramedic Negligence Injuries Worth?
The severity of your injuries, in addition to any long-term complications, will dictate the value of your claim. Minor injuries are worth less than serious medical issues, for example. Any kind of medical negligence can cause mistrust of the medical profession; as such, the compensation that you receive needs to reflect that.
