Legal advice about poor mental health services

medical negligence

Poor mental health services can have a devastating impact on the victim, and it’s something that needs to be addressed in this day and age.

As with any other medical issue, a patient needs to be diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion. However, some patients are finding it increasingly difficult to access the mental health services that they require, and delays can cause harm to patients. In the worst-case scenarios, delays can lead to patient deaths, which is why this is an important issue to address.

People who suffer from delays and diagnosis problems when it comes to mental health services can be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Claiming for poor mental health services

It’s possible for a patient to make a claim for medical negligence compensation that arises from poor mental health services.

If the incorrect diagnosis is given, whether it’s a misdiagnosis or someone not treating a problem as seriously as it should be, a patient may have a legal case. Treatment must be provided in a timely fashion to make sure that the patient’s needs are met. If this isn’t the case, or if the wrong treatment steps are taken, a patient can suffer more.

In these kinds of instances, people can be entitled to bring a claim for personal injury compensation for any mental health injuries caused by these kinds of problems. We have considerable experience in both individual cases and in group action compensation claims where our clients have recovered damages for mental injuries. We appreciate how sensitive such cases are, and how best to make sure we’re looking after our clients’ best interests.
