Compensation claims for a failure to give appropriate diet advice

Obesity has become a real problem in the UK in recent years and with an increase in the number of people who are suffering from heart disorders and related diseases, it’s one element of society that the medical profession is working hard to tackle.

If you do currently suffer from being overweight then you may have gone to visit a local GP or doctor for diet advice and hopefully they have put you on the way to improving your health. If this isn’t the case and your health deteriorates after this advice, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

Who could be at fault in this situation?

If you feel you have been the victim of inappropriate diet advice and it has made your situation deteriorate, then there are a number of people who you could potentially look to make a compensation claim against. A claim in this situation could be against anyone who you feel has been directly negligent towards you and has failed to give the best help at their disposal – this can range from a GP to a dentist, or even a medical dietician.If you believe there has been incompetence at your cost then it is within your rights to claim.

Where could failure to give diet advice occur?

If you believe you have been the victim of inappropriate diet advice then you could be entitled to make a claim. There are a number of areas in which potential problems could have occurred, which include:

·         Failure to advise appropriate diet advice after surgery

·         Treatment suffers as a result of incorrect diet

·         Condition worsens after poor diet advice

·         Failure to advise medical risks of treatments.
