Compensation claims for a failure to treat autism

If you have ever experienced autism in your life or know someone who suffers from it, then you will know how devastating it is for the people involved. Autism can be difficult to treat as it is not a single disorder, but a spectrum of closely-related disorders with a shared core of symptoms. Every individual who suffers from autism has problems to some degree with social skills, empathy, communication, and flexible behaviour. The level of disability and the combination of symptoms varies tremendously from person to person so it can often mean that the cure is difficult to find, but modern medicine has found a way. Unfortunately, mistakes can be made through negligence and this can lead you to suffer even further than what you have already experienced. If you believe you have suffered as a result of this, then you could be entitled to make a claim to help you with any losses and health issues you have developed.

Who could I make a claim against?

If you have suffered as a result of medical negligence and you have been left with further injuries or medical problems as a result, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to recuperate any losses you have incurred. There are a number of people who you could make a claim against, with the most likely candidate being the psychologist who failed to treat your problem. Autism is a very sensitive area and as such it requires professional help from a trained psychologist, but in order to make your claim successful you have to prove that a person has been negligent towards you. If you believe certain requirements have not been reached then it’s within your rights to claim against them for negligence.

In which circumstance might a claim be able made?

If you believe that your acute stress disorder has not been correctly treated and you have suffered as a result of this, then you could be entitled to make a claim. Some common examples could include:

  • Claims against a negligent psychologist
  • Claims against an under-qualified psychologist
  • Claims for failure to treat autism
  • Claims if your condition has worsened as a result of poor treatment
  • Claims against trauma suffered as a result of poor treatment
