GP Negligence Claims
Falling ill is inevitable from time to time. Whenever that happens, most of us head directly to our local GP surgery to seek assured advice from a trusted medical professional.
Negligent advice or assistance given by a general practitioner doesn’t happen very often; though it can cause serious harm or injury when it does.
Pursuing a claim against your GP is often a complex process, particularly if you have visited the same doctor or the same practice for many years. That doesn’t make it any less important to seek legal advice and validate a potential negligence claim as soon as possible.
Our specialist GP negligence team have substantial experience in pursuing claims against general practitioners and local surgeries. We’re here to walk you through all available legal options at each stage of the claim process with professionalism and understanding.
We have successfully advised clients on a range of issues relating to GP malpractice, including:
- Failure to investigate symptoms
- Failure to refer to a specialist
- Failure to attend a home visit
- Failure to act on test results
- Failure to review medication
- Inappropriate drug prescriptions
- Poor record keeping
Expert legal support when you need it most
Pursuing a claim against your local GP isn’t always easy. Many people feel reluctant to take legal action, either through loyalty or because of perceived difficulties in registering with a new GP who may not know their medical history.
It’s crucial to remember that a victim of GP negligence is just as likely to require the care, assistance or financial compensation as a victim of hospital negligence. At Slater Heelis, we are well equipped to review all relevant medical records before providing an expert opinion on your claim. We are here to ensure clients receive the treatment and compensation they need, when they need it.
