Compensation for a failure to acknowledge an allergy during treatment

Regardless of the type of treatment that you are undertaking, if you are in a situation where you need to undertake treatment then chances are that you have dealing with a pretty serious injury and the last thing that you want to deal with is the situation worsening and your injury becoming more severe.

Allergies are something that well have, small allergies, serious allergies, and sometimes allergies that we don’t even know we have – but if you do have an allergy and you alert your medical professional to it then it’s crucial that they take all possible steps to avoid this leading to any problems during your treatment.

If you feel that you have been treated negligently and you have been left with injuries as a result, you could look to make a claim for compensation.

How might this accident have occurred?

There are a whole host of situations which could lead to an accident occurring and some common examples of where this happens include:

·         A failure to identify a potential allergy

·         A failure to adequately record patient data

·         A failure to ascertain the appropriate patient information

·         Negligence during surgery or treatment

·         A failure to acknowledge an allergy while treatment is taking place.

Who could be responsible for an injury of this type?

In general the fault in this situation will lie with your healthcare professional whose responsibility it is to take into consideration any pre-existing problems that you might have and act accordingly. If you feel that they haven’t done this – and that they have been negligent towards you – then you could consider a claim against them.
