Compensation claims for a failure to provide an adequate treatment plan
One of the most important aspects of undergoing a procedure and the eventual recuperation stages is that you have an adequate treatment plan to follow – this ensures that the correct measures are in place that you can follow to get you back to full fitness. It is your doctor’s job to inform you of all the risks and benefits involved so you can be certain that it is something you want to go through with. It is your right to be informed of the risks, because what might only be a very small but recognised risk could lead on to very serious injuries, and you need to be aware of any potential problems that can occur.
In some cases the doctor should explain not only the risks of the proposed procedure, but proceed to inform you of all suitable treatments at your disposal –giving you the decision to choose which you would like to go ahead with. If you believe that the correct procedure has not been followed and you get injured as a result of this, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation as a result.
Who could have been responsible for your injuries?
Depending on the circumstances of your injury, then there are a number of people who you could potentially make a claim against. If you believe there has been a failure to provide an adequate treatment plan and expose all medical risks that could affect you, then you could look to claim against your GP – this also applies to a surgeon, physiotherapist or any other medical professional if you feel that they have put your health at risk as a result of medical negligence. If you believe certain requirements have not been reached then it is in your rights to claim against them and recoup any losses that you have incurred.
Where could you have been the victim of this?
If you believe you have failed to receive an adequate treatment plan 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 of medical risks for procedures
- Failure to advise of medical risks for surgery
- Failure to advise of medical risks for medication
- Failure to advise of medical risks of treatments
- Claims against a negligent GP
