Diabetes is one of the most common illnesses in the modern world. On one hand, that means there is some great and effective treatment available – on the other, there are a lot more opportunities for medical negligence. If you’re looking to start diabetic negligence claims, then you need a team on your side who specialise in cases like this. At Tylers Solicitors, we understand the pain and inconvenience that medical negligence can cause. Our diabetic negligence claims have the best chance of success because we have the experience and understanding necessary to make a successful case.
When we go to see our doctor or other healthcare specialists, we are putting our trust in them. One of the worst feelings in the world is to put your trust in a professional who then betrays it. It becomes even worse when, due to a professional’s mistake or misconduct, our lives are put at risk. We know you wouldn’t pursue diabetic negligence claims if they weren’t valid, and our team will give their all to make sure that you get the compensation you deserve.
A negligence claim relating to diabetes can result from a variety of situations. As it is an illness which can have a variety of symptoms, it is one of the easiest to mistreat or misdiagnose. One common problem is the timing of the diagnosis, which can often be delayed as healthcare providers run more tests. There is a mixture of minor and major side-effects which can develop during this delay, including:
- Kidney Failure.
- Heart Attacks.
- Permanent Muscle Damage.
- Blindness and Eyesight Degradation.
- Brain Damage.
- Limb Damage Resulting in Amputation.
Whether you are a type 1 (mainly hereditary) or type 2 (often down to age and lifestyle choices) there are a range of different effects that the illness can have on your daily life. These can include:
- Loss of Earning.
- Adjustments to your home to accommodate new lifestyle.
- Help with care and insulin management.
- Specialist treatments and equipment, including blood testers, insulin, needles and emergency supplies.
Poor diabetes treatment and diagnosis can severely impact your life. It’s only fair that, if you have been the victim of mistreatment or misdiagnosis of either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you receive the compensation you deserve.
Diabetic negligence claims develop after you have been mistreated by your healthcare professional. They are usually made against NHS hospitals or private healthcare providers – both of which can be equally guilty when it comes to negligence. We understand the damage that a lifelong condition such as diabetes can cause, and the mistreatment or misdiagnosis can have lasting effects which can, in some instances, render you unable to work.
At Tylers, we can work with you to ascertain whether you have a legitimate case. Our claims process is simple and easy to understand; we won’t try and make you say things you aren’t comfortable with, or cause you to relive your traumatic events in detail. Our professional and friendly team will introduce themselves and ask you simple, uniform questions designed to gain the most information without causing any distress.
Using your answers, we can identify eligible claims and give you an indication of what you might expect to receive. Our team will try to stay out of your way as much as possible, usually contacting you by letter or telephone when required. However, should you need a sympathetic ear to talk to throughout your medical negligence claim, we are here for you.
We also recommend that you keep hold of any documents which you think might be helpful to your case. In many instances, if your gut is telling you that a piece of information is valid, then it normally is. Having proof as to your negligence claim can make the entire process much faster and more likely to receive a positive result.
