GP Negligence Claims

Your GP is vital to your healthcare journey and is often the first point of contact when you need medical attention. It is crucial that your GP recognises your symptoms, diagnoses your condition, and provides prompt treatment or refers you to a specialist if necessary.

However, if your GP fails to provide a reasonable and competent standard of care, it could result in avoidable injury, pain, and suffering. Severe conditions such as diabetes, heart conditions, meningitis, and cancer require urgent specialist treatment, and your GP should be able to identify them.

If you believe that your GP has failed to uphold the required standard of care, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim. It is essential to seek the advice of a specialist medical negligence solicitor who can guide you through the legal process and help you get the answers you need.

At the Personal Injury People, we understand the devastating impact GP negligence can have on your life, affecting not just you but those of your family and loved ones.

Making a Compensation Claim

We understand that you may be reluctant to make a negligence claim against your GP. This could be due to various reasons, such as a sense of loyalty or concerns over further treatment. However, it is important to note that the negligent failure of a GP could have severe and life-changing consequences, which may require extensive care and financial assistance to help with the recovery, rehabilitation, or coping with the aftermath.

If you suspect that your medical treatment has been negligent, it is imperative to seek legal advice as soon as possible. Our highly skilled personal injury solicitors have longstanding experience handling GP negligence cases. We can investigate what has happened to you and assess whether you are entitled to claim compensation. By taking this step, you can ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the compensation and necessary support to help you navigate these challenging times. Remember, seeking legal advice is the first step towards obtaining the answers and compensation you deserve.
