Inadequate Treatment Compensation
The service you receive from your healthcare provider doesn’t have to be wrong or absent for them to be negligent. Sometimes, they care they deliver simply falls short of an acceptable level, and you are left suffering as a result. If you believe you have been affected by inadequate treatment, lawyers at The Medical Negligence Experts can help.
What is Inadequate Treatment?
Inadequate treatment is when you do not receive an acceptable standard of care due to human error or ineffective processes. It does not have to be deliberate, and it does not have to occur in hospital. Inadequate care can affect patients who seek treatment from the GP or dentist, or to residents in care homes. Inadequate care does not discriminate between NHS and private patients either, as our clients have suffered negligent care in both types of facilities.
A dental patient was able to claim compensation due to additional treatment required after their dentist failed to remove the dying nerve entirely and clean the root canal correctly during surgery. The result was an infection and excessive pain, as well as lost income from the further corrective surgery and recuperation time the patient subsequently required.
Not all inadequate negligence can cause damage however if a cancer diagnosis was delayed due to a GP failing to assess a patient adequately when they first presented their concerns, and subsequently required more invasive treatment and had a less positive outcome, a client could successfully claim compensation for their negligent care caused by inadequate treatment.
Inadequate treatment could start with something as seemingly mild as not assessing the condition of a surgical wound when changing the dressing, leading to missed infection, delayed recovery time and, in extreme cases, sepsis leading to amputation.
How Can We Help?
Even if you are unsure if your injury resulted from negligent care you should talk to The Medical Negligence Experts. Our experienced solicitors will talk you about your situation and advise whether you have valid grounds for a claim. Anyone bringing a claim for compensation needs to be able to prove that their injury happened as the result of the inadequate care they received, and not due to any other underlying cause, so it is crucial to the success of your claim to verify this at the outset.
If your claim is valid and you choose to proceed, The Medical Negligence Experts will represent you to the responsible care provider and, if necessary, the courts, to ensure you get the best possible outcome. We understand that compensation is not merely money, it is the resource you need to overcome the effects of your injury and achieve your full potential. A compensation claim is also about having your trauma recognised and validated, and not swept aside as if it did not happen.
Medical negligence claims can take a while to resolve, and there is a time limit on submitting them. You can begin today by making an initial, no-obligation enquiry to The Medical Negligence Experts. Contact us now and ask how we can help you.
