Compensation claims for a failure to treat a skin infection

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. Having a skin infection can cause a lot of problems for both your health and appearance, so it is important that your symptoms are treated as soon as possible. If your doctor fails to treat this however then you could be eligible to make a claim against them for negligence, as your health could deteriorate as well as your finances as you look to amend the situation.

Although medical negligence 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. A claim for medical malpractice can be brought against your dermatologist for negligent treatment of skin or failure to diagnose or properly treat certain skin infections or conditions.
