Legal notice format to a hospital for medical negligence 


How to draft a legal notice in case of medical negligence by a hospital or doctor. 

The first and foremost step to bring an action against a Hospital or a doctor for medical negligence is to issue a legal notice. Such a notice must state the dispute of the complainant and state the reliefs being sought.

You can also file a criminal case against the hospital for medical negligence which carries an imprisonment of up to 2 years. Apart from this  you can also sue it to seek compensation for the medical negligence which resulted in the death of your daughter.

Only a court of law is competent to adjudicate the guilt of the hospital. The opinion of a board of directors along with the medical history of your daughter would be taken into consideration by the court.

You need to engage a lawyer to proceed. 

Here is the format of a legal notice issued to a doctor in case of medical negligence.
