We all rely on our GPs to provide us with front-line medical care to us. In most cases they will be the first port of call for any medical concerns that we have, also acting as the gateway for onward referral to appropriate specialists.
Thankfully most GPs provide excellent professional medical service but errors do happen. If you feel that you’ve suffered because of an error by a GP or a GP practice then we can help you.
The role of a GP
In order to achieve the correct diagnosis or assessment, to prescribe the appropriate medication, arrange appropriate tests or make a referral to an appropriate specialist it is vital that the GP :-
- takes the time to listen and fully consider everything that they are told,
- asks appropriate questions
- undertakes appropriate tests.
If this does not happen then we know that the impact on a patient can be devastating. Red flags can be missed, important symptoms can be dismissed and inappropriate treatment given. As a result conditions can go undetected and untreated leading to unavoidable pain and a deterioration in health.
If you feel that this has happened to you or anyone in your family then we are here to assist you. We will support you and advise as to whether there are grounds for a legal claim.
GP negligence compensation claims
Although compensation will not right the wrong caused to you it can make life more manageable by providing funding for:-
- rehabilitation costs
- travelling expenses
- lost earnings
- further surgery
- aids and appliances
- additional care
If you think that you have suffered as a result of GP error then you are entitled to know what went wrong and, if this was as a result of negligence, to receive financial compensation not only for your pain and suffering but also for your past and future losses and expenses.
