Compensation for urine analysis errors
If you visit your local GP for a full health examination, or perhaps with a medical ailment, chances are that one of the tests that you will undertake is a urine analysis and this is one of the most accurate ways of determining if you potentially could have a health issue. Urine tests are usually quick and easy and can be performed right then and there, helping to give you an immediate indication of any potential health issues.
Although urine analysis is quite a simple process, errors can be made and if a mistake is made at this stage then a potentially serious illness can be overlooked at such a crucial time. If you have been the victim of this negligence then you may be considering a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred.
IF I SUFFER FROM A URINE ANALYSIS ERROR, WHO COULD I CLAIM AGAINST?
In general at a simple level your urine analysis will be carried out by your GP and this will be the person that you will look to direct your compensation claim against. If your GP fails to identify any potential health issues through a urine analysis then you could consider a claim against them. In addition, in some cases your sample may be sent away for analysis and if a mistake is made at this stage you could make a claim against the company who is carrying out the analysis. If I do suffer, what are some injuries or health problems that I could sustain? A failed urine analysis can lead to a whole host of medical problems including:
- A failure to identify a potentially serious illness
- Identifying the wrong illness
- Prescription of the wrong medication due to errors in urine analysis
- Incorrect treatment due to errors in urine analysis.
