Compensation claims for a failure to treat bulimia
We’ve all been in the situation where we feel lonely, bored, or stressed and turn to food to help pass the time, but with bulimia, overeating is more like a compulsion rather than a habit. Whereas most people will get back to their normal lives after snacking by eating sensibly to make up for it, bulimia sufferers punish themselves by purging, fasting, or exercising to a dangerous level in order to get rid of the calories. This vicious cycle of binging and purging takes a toll on the body and emotional well-being, but thankfully this can be treated with medical help. Doctors and psychologists are highly trained and have a wealth of experience in dealing with these issues, but sadly this is not always the case as you could end up becoming the victim of medical negligence. If you feel that you have suffered through somebody else’s mistakes then you could be entitled to receive some compensation.
Who could be at fault for your claims?
In general, anyone who you believe could have put your health at risk through medical negligence could potentially have a claim made against them, whether that is your doctor, psychologist or any other medical professional involved in the process. If you have been affected by medical negligence, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation against them to help you throughout the recovery process.
In which situations might I look to claim?
If you believe you have been the victim of medical negligence and your bulimia has worsened as a result, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. There are a number of areas in which potential problems could have occurred, which include:
- If your health deteriorates as a result of poor treatment
- If you develop further symptoms as a result of poor treatment
- Claims against an under-qualified psychologist
- Claims against a negligent psychologist
- Claims if your symptoms have not been diagnosed correctly
