Compensation claims for a failure to identify a serious illness

Whenever you are ill it is understandable that you would seek out medical attention from your doctor’s or hospital to ensure that everything is ok. They are highly trained and can often identify the issue and deal with it accordingly, but if they fail to do this then your health could be put at risk and as such you could be in a lot of pain.

While you are undergoing treatment or you are administered to hospital, then it is your doctors’ responsibility to ensure that you are safe while you are under their supervision. So if you are subjected to medical negligence and your health is put at risk then the blame will rest with whoever was in charge of you at the time of the incident. If you have been affected by this then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation, which can help you with medical fees and other such needs.

Who could be at fault for your injuries?

If you have suffered as a result of medical negligence and are struggling to pay for medical fees and have missed out on work, then making a claim could be your best option. There are a number of people who you could consider making a claim against, with the most obvious being the person who was responsible for your safety at the time – this could be your doctor, a surgeon or any other medical professional who has put your health at risk. Making a claim doesn’t have to be difficult or confusing, but if it is an option you decide to take then it is important that you can prove the person was involved in order for it to be successful.

Where could negligence occur?

It is your doctor’s responsibility to ensure you are safe, so if they fail to uphold this then you could be entitled to make a claim as a result. There are a number of instances where negligence could occur, with some common examples including:

  • Claims against trauma suffered as a result of medical negligence
  • Claims if your original symptoms start to deteriorate
  • If your condition spreads to another part of your body
  • Claims against a negligent doctor
  • Claims against a negligent surgeon
