Claims against a negligent specialist
Although in most situations when we do have a medical issue a trip to our doctor or GP will more than suffice, unfortunately this is not always the case and sometimes our injuries will require just a little extra help. If you find yourself in a position where your GP cannot treat the injuries that you have, then you may find that you are referred to a specialist who can help you out here, and as such hopefully put you on the right track back to health.
Although in most situations specialists are complete experts in what they do, unfortunately this is not always the case and as such you could find that you are the victim of negligence at the hands of a specialist.
AGAINST WHO COULD I CONSIDER A COMPENSATION CLAIM?
In general if you are the victim here then the person who you will be most likely to consider a compensation claim against is in fact your specialist. In most situations they will be the person who has failed to treat you appropriately, perhaps in failing to refer you to the appropriate surgery which you might have needed, or alternately in failing to adequately diagnose and deal with potential injuries that you might have.
IN WHICH SITUATIONS COULD A CLAIM FOR COMPENSATION BE MADE?
Compensation claims can be made in a range of different circumstances. Some popular situations where you may consider claiming include:
- Claims for a mis-diagnosis
- Claims for a missed diagnosis
- Claims for a failure to treat
- Claims for failure to undertake appropriate examinations
- Claims for errors and omissions
