If you have decided to make a compensation claim following a personal injury then you may be wondering where to…
GP negligence can lead to serious complications and cause a great deal of psychological distress and physical harm to people who already may have life-threatening illnesses. It can involve errors in filling out prescriptions, incorrect diagnosis, failure to refer people to other healthcare providers, negligence in consulting medical records and a range of other GP errors.
When people are the victims of medical negligence involving a GP, they can often be reluctant to claim for compensation, as they worry that they will put the practitioner out of business. It is important to realise that the GP will have an insurance policy to cover them in this event, and this will pay for your compensation.
It is also important for the GP to realise that they behaved in a negligent fashion, as this enables them to avoid making similar mistakes in the future and causing other people to suffer a personal injury, or even stop the GP from making a fatal accident. People expect professionals such as GPs to deliver a high quality of care and those that fail in this regard should have this highlighted.
Pursuing a GP negligence claim can be vital for people who have received poor care from their healthcare provider, helping them get their life back on track and pay for the costs of rehabilitation, specialist treatment and a range of out-of-pocket expenses.
