Claiming compensation for specialist treatment
Although in many cases most generic injuries can be quickly dealt with and treated by a GP, in some situations this is not always the case. Although GPs have a very wide range of knowledge, there are some specific injuries and illnesses that they are not qualified to deal with and accordingly you could be referred to a specialist for further treatment.
If you do have an injury which requires specialist treatment then chances are that your condition is quite serious and needs to be dealt with in a prompt and efficient manner. Unfortunately from time to time your specialist can make an error and this can lead to the worsening of existing symptoms or the development of new symptoms. If this happens to you, then you could consider a claim for compensation.
WHO COULD I CLAIM AGAINST FOR FAILED SPECIALIST TREATMENT?
If you have been the victim of failed specialist treatment then the person who you will most likely consider making a compensation claim against is your specialist. As a highly trained professional it is the responsibility of your specialist to ensure that you receive the best medical attention possible at all times. If you feel that they have been directly negligent towards you and as a result you have been left with serious injuries or illnesses, you could consider a compensation claim.
WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF FAILED SPECIALIST TREATMENT?
There are a number of different situations where you could be eligible to make a claim against your specialist. Some of the common examples of this include:
- Failure to adequately diagnose an illness or injury
- Failure to adequately treat an illness or injury
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Failure to prescribe any medication
- Failure to provide an appropriate referral for surgery or further treatment
