Compensation claims for a failure to treat bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a lifelong condition. It runs an unpredictable course of ups and downs and when left untreated, these ups and downs can be devastating for anyone involved. Some of the symptoms involved include mood swings, anger and stress and so successful treatment of bipolar disorder depends on a combination of factors, including skilled professional help. Medication alone is not enough – in order to get the most out of treatment, it’s important that your doctors and therapists communicate with you and have a strong support system, otherwise it won’t be a long-term success.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case and your condition could deteriorate as a result of their negligence, leaving you with a lot of grief and anguish, not to mention financial loss. If you have been a victim of this then you could make a claim for compensation.

Who could be held responsible for my claims?

Bipolar disorder is a serious illness that affects a large number of people every year, with devastating effects, but thankfully it can be treated through psychological and medical help. However, if you feel that you haven’t felt any benefits from treatment, whether it’s because of a lack of training for your psychologist or medical negligence, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. It’s important that your psychologist is highly-trained because bipolar disorder is a long and difficult process, so if they are not performing to their ability then your mental state could decline and leave you with a lot of traumatic issues. If you believe you have suffered as a result of medical negligence then you could be entitled compensation to help you recuperate any losses you have sustained.

In which situations might you look to make a claim?

A number of problems can potentially occur as the result of negligence on behalf of a physiotherapist, with some common examples of where you could sustain injuries including:

·         Claims for failure to treat bipolar disorder

·         Claims if your condition has declined

·         Claims against trauma suffered as a result of poor treatment

·         Claims against a negligent psychologist

·         Claims against an under-qualified psychologist
