Compensation claims for negligence during an initial consultation

Having a consultation before undergoing a medical procedure is common practice in hospitals today as they give you an opportunity to understand what course of action will be taken, while helping to keep your mind at ease. Having surgery can be quite daunting so it always helps to get reassurance and a step by step plan of how the events will unfold and during this consultation you can approve whether or not you want to follow the course of action.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t always go to plan and you could be left with a serious, life-changing injury because of a mistake made during the consultation stages. This can have a massive impact on your life both mentally and financially, so making a claim could be your best option as it could help you pay off medical fees and you could recoup any losses you have incurred as a result of missing work.

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, 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 doctor who failed to diagnose your problem. A physical illness that goes unmissed can be very dangerous for your health and if you believe that you haven’t received the best possible help available, then you could look to seek compensation as a result. However, in order to make your claim successful you have to prove that a person has been negligent towards you.

In which circumstance might a claim be able made?

If you believe that you have suffered because of medical negligence then you could be entitled to make a claim. Some common examples could include:

  • Claims against an infection
  • Claims against an negligent surgeon
  • Claims for failure to provide an adequate consultation
  • Claims if mistakes were made as a result of poor consultation
  • Claims against incorrect prescription of medication
