Compensation for undiagnosed disability
Many tens of thousands of people right around the UK suffer from disabilities which can make it difficult for them to perform common tasks on a daily basis, but one of the most crucial ways of dealing with a disability is knowing that you have one in the first place. When a person starts to suffer from symptoms of a disability they will usually visit their local GP to get checked out and they will be diagnosed accordingly – allowing them to move on and deal with their disability in an appropriate manner.
Unfortunately in some situations through the negligence of a GP a diagnosis can often be overlooked and a person might be living with a disability that they don’t even know that they have. Without an appropriate diagnosis it can be hard to be treated appropriately and therefore a person may have to continue to live with this disability without any appropriate help. If you find yourself in this situation then you may consider a compensation claim.
WHO COULD I CLAIM AGAINST FOR AN UNDIAGNOSED DISABILITY?
If you are suffering from an undiagnosed disability then you could be looking to make a compensation claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you – and not appropriately diagnosed you, in most situations this is your doctor or GP. It’s the responsibility of any medical professional to ensure that you are dealt with and treated appropriately and if you feel that they have failed to do this then you could consider a compensation claim.
