Compensation claims for a failure to diagnose a skin infection

A skin infection can create a lot of problems for your health, not to mention your appearance, as the repercussions for failing to diagnose the symptoms could have a serious impact on your life. If your skin infection goes unnoticed by a medical professional then you could be eligible to make a claim against them for medical negligence. Although it is quite uncommon in the UK, it can still occur and when it does it can cause a lot of problems for your health and finances – so making a claim could be your best option.

Although in general doctors do a great job at maintaining our health, every now and again through negligence they can incorrectly treat a medical issue which can potentially leave you with the need for further surgery or additional pain and suffering and as such you could look to make a compensation claim.

Who might I be able to make a claim against?

There are a number of different types of infection that you could sustain and these differ in severity depending on the type of injury that you have and the bacteria that you have contracted. However, if a medical professional has failed to diagnose the infection then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation as a result. There are a number of people who you could make a claim against, including a doctor, GP or surgeon who have put your health at risk by not performing to the best of their abilities. It is important to remember though that you must be able to prove their involvement in your injuries in order to make your claim successful.

What circumstances may I look to make a claim?

Medical negligence can be very dangerous for your health and is unacceptable in modern times, so if you believe that you have suffered then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Some common examples of where this may occur include:

  • Facial and tissue scarring which can often be quite severe
  • Infections which may occur as the result of negligent hygiene
  • Discolouration of the skin and surrounding tissue
  • Allergic reactions to medication or sedatives
  • Claims against unhygienic equipment used during an operation
