Have you been injured or made ill because of medical negligence? All doctors, nurses, dentists and other practitioners have a duty of care towards their patients, which means that they are supposed to do everything possible to uphold their wellbeing. This means that if the medical practitioner delivers substandard care, and the patient is harmed as a result then the health care provider that the practitioner works for, could be held liable for any injuries caused and may have to pay the injured party compensation as a result.

GPs are usually the first people we turn to when we or our families show the signs of an illness. Often, the GP is able to provide treatment themselves or they may refer us to a specialist to diagnose us and treat us. If GP malpractice occurs, it may mean a patient may suffer a lot more than they would have. Examples of GP medical negligence may include: your GP failing to spot the signs of a serious medical condition and not referring them to a specialist and the patient deteriorates, prescribing the wrong dosage of medication causing adverse health effects, or misdiagnosing a patient’s illness and the patient may receive unnecessary medication and the current condition goes untreated.
Care homes exist to provide residential care for people who are no longer able to take care of themselves, such as people who are very elderly and infirm. If your next of kin relative has been injured or made ill because of negligence at a care home, or nursing home and they are not able to claim for themselves (for example they are now suffering from dementia), then you could be entitled to claim compensation for their injuries, on their behalf. These funds could ensure that they receive the highest possible standard of care, going forwards.

Hospitals provide patients with essential care, operations, outpatient care, and emergency treatment. Unfortunately, if a doctor, nurse, surgeon or midwife provides negligent treatment towards a patient at a hospital, then this may lead to further complications or injuries. Examples of hospital negligence could include: childbirth injuries, misdiagnosis by a specialist, an anaethetist’s error, the wrong medication being prescribed, or surgical errors. It is important to mention that negligence alone is not enough to pursue a compensation claim, the medical practitioner through negligence, error or omission must have in some way caused the patient harm.

Unfortunately, most cancers are a disease that spreads and worsens over time. This means that if you are suffering from cancer and your GP fails to recognise the signs and refer you to a specialist, or your oncologist misdiagnoses your cancer, this could delay you getting the treatment that you need. This means that your cancer may become harder to treat, or spread to other organs. In the worst cases, it means that the patient doesn’t survive the disease.
If you have had your cancer worsened because of negligent treatment or cancer misdiagnosis, call our team today and they could assess your case.
