Suing a Doctor or GP
Nowadays there is a greater awareness in our culture of what compensation we can get for ourselves, if we are treated incompetently by an individual in a position of trust and power. Between 2010 and 2011 the number of claims rose 20% according to the Telegraph. That means, that there are many lawyers specialising in negligence, who can help you today; you have a wealth of knowledge waiting for you.
GP negligence can cover a range of bases:
- Failure to diagnose
- Failure to refer
- Prescribing errors
All of these areas can result in further complications for a patient when the issue could have been treated far more quickly, had it not been for the GP’s negligence. GP negligence claims are assessed against the opinion of a ‘reasonable body’ of medical professionals. If most doctors are thought to have been able to diagnose a disorder that your GP failed to recognise the symptoms for, you have the basis for a negligence claim.
