What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a serious medical condition that affects your blood glucose levels, causing them to be too high so that they have to be regulated. There are two main types of diabetes, 1 and 2, both causing a lack of insulin production in the body.

Whilst a medical condition that has to be monitored and treated, and can be life-threatening, it is very manageable. Unfortunately, in some cases patients can develop complications from diabetes, which is often caused by poor or inadequate medical care by healthcare professionals.

In such cases, you may be able to claim compensation to help to ensure that you can get back on your feet while dealing with your health issues. At Forbes Solicitors, we can give you the expert legal support and advice you need to get the outcome you want and the compensation you deserve.
