It could be your opinion that your doctor has been negligent when it comes to dealing with your injury or illness. They could misdiagnose you which could lead to you living an uncomfortable life.

GP’s & surgical doctors are professionals; they should know what the next steps should be if you are in discomfort, after all, we are looking towards them with hope, and we take their advice as the gospel truth, although sometimes it can turn out to be the opposite. Unfortunately, doctors are only human, and they can make mistakes, but that one mistake can have a heavy impact on a patient’s life.

If your doctor has not referred you to a specialist and as a result, you have become ill, then you are eligible for a clinical negligence compensation claim. Here in Manchester, Tylers Solicitors lead clinical negligence claims for our clients. You can call our offices today on 0800 699 0079 for a more detailed chat about how we can help you to process your clinical negligence claim against your doctor.

Malpractice Explained

Malpractice is a legal term that occurs in hospitals, doctors, dentists or other health care professions which is deemed to be a negligent act, omission or cause of injury. Malpractice also means unethical and is an umbrella of bad practice or treatment in circumstances of a service offering diagnosis, treatment, aftercare or health management.

So what mistakes can doctors make where I can claim compensation?

Doctors are human, plain and simple, but they are experts in their field. Doctors have a proven ability to diagnose or treat human problems through their expert opinion. Unfortunately, they are not always of the right opinion, and this can result in misdiagnosis & health problems for their patient.

  • Medical malpractice
  • Treating the wrong patient
  • Fake doctors
  • Air bubbles in blood
  • Infection infestation
  • Lost patients (Dementia)
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Lookalike tubes
  • Waking up during surgery
  • Childbirth injury (Negligent prenatal care)
  • Medication errors
  • Anaesthesia error
  • Surgery error (Surgical souvenirs & operating on wrong body organ)

Please refer to this article about a common problem that many unfortunate people run into at some point in their lives. It explains the everyday worries about finding cancer and how it can be misdiagnosed:

Why Life’s Lumps And Bumps Matter

Increasing numbers of people of both genders are learning about the importance of checking their bodies for lumps when taking a shower or bath. This is a key strategy in the detection of certain types of cancers, such as breast, prostate and skin cancer. Cancer charities encourage people who spot lumps, warts or new (or changed) moles to contact their doctor immediately. Unfortunately, doctors do not always take the right action at the right time.

GP Negligence Case Study

GPs are encouraged to treat patients as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. This means only recommending further tests or a second opinion if there is a strong case for doing so. Most of the time, patients whose symptoms indicate that they have a common, non-life-threatening disorder have exactly what they appear to have. Unfortunately, in a minority of cases, they will have a serious illness, which, in its early stages, has similar symptoms to a common disorder. For example, headaches, soreness in the neck/throat and nausea are all far more likely to be signs of a common cold than they are to be signs of meningitis. The problem is that the potential consequences of failing to pick up on one of these symptoms in its early stages can be fatal.

Because of this, many times GPs end up making a judgement call based on factors other than the symptoms themselves. One obvious factor is age. The very young and the very old are both hugely vulnerable from a medical point of view. Young adults are the least vulnerable to the likelihood of serious illness going up as the years go by.  Another factor is family medical history.  Unfortunately, people can score all clear on both counts and still have serious illnesses. The actions of specialist solicitors who can help with GP compensation claims have helped to highlight the dangers of using guesswork and judgement calls when dealing with situations where people are presenting symptoms.

Unfortunately, even when doctors and GPS do play safe and send patients for tests, the results can be waylaid by bureaucracy.
