SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

If you feel that you were not given adequate treatment or care by your GP and you believe that they were negligent when dealing with you, call the expert solicitors at Forbes today and get your GP negligence claim started.

Mistakes can happen, especially when GPs have many patients to deal with, unfortunately this can mean that you suffer or are injured as a result. GPs have to manage many patients per day and although they are qualified to advise on many medical issues, they are required to refer you to a specialist doctor if your injury or illness is severe. Failure to refer patients to a more specialist doctor can cause devastating injuries. Furthermore a GP may misdiagnose an illness or injury which can cause harm to patients.

Types of GP Negligence Claims

Some of the key types of issues Forbes solicitors deal with involve GPs:

  • Failing to diagnose injuries/fractures correctly
  • Failing to refer patients for cancer investigations
  • Prescribing the wrong medications/medication errors
  • Failing to diagnose meningitis
  • Failing to diagnose brain haemorrhages
  • Failing to diagnose unstable angina which could lead to cardiac arrest

If your GP fails to diagnose a problem or fails in their duty to refer you to the appropriate channels and you are injured as a result, you have a right to claim compensation.

Clinical negligence cases including GP negligence cases are always fiercely defended, and as such you need an expert team of solicitors fighting for your right to compensation. This particular area of law is extremely complex and requires the expertise and knowledge of an experienced and accredited law firm, such as Forbes.
