Claims against a negligent doctor

Whenever a healthcare issue arises, chances are that your doctor is the first person that you will visit and when you do see them you are hoping for a quick and accurate diagnosis of any potential problems that you might have. Although in many cases doctors can give us a quick and adequate examination of what is wrong, unfortunately this is not always the case, and sometimes through mistakes we can be left without the treatment that we need for these injuries.

If you feel that you have suffered at the hands of a negligent doctor, then you could look to make a claim for compensation to cover the necessary costs that you need for rehabilitation.

IN WHICH SITUATIONS COULD MY DOCTOR HAVE BEEN NEGLIGENT?

Your doctor could be negligent to you in a number of different situations, some common examples where you may consider making a claim include:

  • Claims for a mis-diagnosis
  • Claims for a failure to diagnose a serious injury
  • Claims for a failure to make an appropriate referral
  • Claims for failure to adequately examine x-rays and scans
  • Claims for failure to order additional tests as needed

WHO CAN I CLAIM AGAINST IN THIS SITUATION?

If you find yourself the victim of a negligent doctor then they will obviously be the first person that you will look to claim against and to do this you will need to be able to prove where they have been negligent. Often in the case of a negligent doctor you will have obtained a second opinion, so it’s important to have with you the recommendations and findings of a second doctor who can help to demonstrate areas where you might have suffered from negligence and thus look to make a claim.
