Doctor Negligence Compensation
Here at Pryers, we also have succeeded in many cases involving other professionals such as community midwives, district nurses, occupational therapists and physiotherapists.
Some of these – such as your family doctor – are people you’ll visit again and again over the years, whereas others, such as physiotherapists, might only be working with you on a specific health complaint.
Regardless of this fact, any of these professionals have a duty to look after you properly. If they cause you injury or illness during your treatment, you could be entitled to compensation.
Types of GP claims
Claims against GP’s include the following;
- Failing to diagnose meningitis
- Failing to diagnose brain haemorrhage
