Our medical negligence team can help you to secure compensation in many different types of negligence claims against doctors, surgeons and GPs.
GP Negligence Claims
The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) is putting guidelines in to place to help GPs provide the best treatment possible and make referrals. Failures to follow those guidelines can result in negligent treatment including:
Failure to make planned referrals
Failure to refer a patient for cancer investigations
Failure to diagnose brain haemorrhage
Failure to diagnose meningitis
Prescribing the wrong medication
Failing to diagnose unstable angina, leading to cardiac arrest
This list is not exhaustive but gives some idea as to the kind of negligent treatment that can lead to patients seeking compensation.
Hospital Negligence Claims
Failing to diagnose a problem, diagnosis of the wrong condition (misdiagnosis) or delaying a diagnosis are mistakes that can be made by doctors. These hospital errors can cause serious damage and injury and are often as a result of:
Failing to take patients full history into account
Failing to examine a patient fully and properly or failing to note all of their symptoms
Failing to carry out the right investigations (including X-rays, blood tests and scans)
Making administrative errors
Interpreting results incorrectly
