GPs are among the most trusted medical professionals in the NHS. But sometimes errors are made – and when they are, patients have a right to seek compensation if the treatment was negligent.
Examples of medical negligence by a GP include:
– Misdiagnosis – where an illness is mistaken for something else, or is missed altogether
– Failure to refer to a specialist causing a delay in diagnosis – your GP must refer you to an appropriate specialist if you have a serious or ongoing illness
– Prescription errors – when you are prescribed either incorrect medication or a dosage that’s too high or too low.
– Failure to see a patient or visit them at home after having said that they will do so
If you are unhappy with the treatment you have received from your GP, we can work with you to assess your case, and offer advice and guidance on the best course of action.
Our lawyers, based in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Hadleigh and Woodbridge, understand the sensitivities sometimes involved in medical cases and can help you receive compensation for the negligent treatment you have suffered.
We can meet you at our offices, your home or wherever is most convenient for a free initial appointment.
We will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case and we will explain the way forward. In most cases we are able to offer clients an insurance protected No Win No Fee agreement.
