Delayed corrective treatment and medical negligence claims

Surgery compensation claims

We trust our doctors to do what’s best for us, using their skills and expertise to carry out successful courses of treatment when we are ill or unwell. However, there are, unfortunately, circumstances in which errors can be made and, in certain cases, these errors can constitute a breach of duty on the part of the doctor or a medical professional. On top of this, the situation can be even worse when the patient faces delayed corrective treatment and has to suffer for longer than they should.

Given the ongoing strains on the NHS, which has only worsened during the coronavirus crisis, it is not uncommon for patients to endure treatment delays; this does not make the situation any less worrying or distressing for those affected. This is particularly the case where patients have already suffered medical negligence, as they are facing health complications that should never have arisen.

If you are eligible to pursue a medical negligence claim, we may also be able to take your delayed corrective treatment into account in your claim. Anything that has unjustly had an adverse impact on your health is important to consider and could factor in as part of a legal case.

Why might patients need corrective treatment?

Corrective treatment can be needed for all kinds of reasons. For example, it may be that you underwent surgery, but it was later found that the surgery was causing complications, or had not been carried out successfully. Similar errors can be made if your doctor comes to the wrong diagnosis, and so prescribes the wrong course of treatment, whether this is medication or another form of therapy.

So, if your received treatment that failed to effectively remedy your condition, or even exacerbated your condition, the situation can become even worse if you then face delayed corrective treatment.

Delayed corrective treatment – how can this be considered in your claim?

If you have suffered medical negligence and are now having to wait due to delayed corrective treatment, this may be something we can help you with as part of a claim. We often seek private treatment for our clients when required and where we are able to do so, and this can be particularly important where they have suffered delays, as the waiting list for private treatment can be much shorter.

In terms of the cost, this is something that you do not need to worry about if we do decide to pursue private treatment for you. This is because we can aim to recover the costs of this treatment from the defendant as part of your claim, if we are able to do so.

Pursue your compensation claim now

When you have already suffered medical negligence, it can be even more upsetting to then face delayed corrective treatment, but these injustices can be accounted for. Our expert medical negligence lawyers have years of experience in handling a range of complex cases, and we can bring this expertise to your claim.

We are even able to offer No Win, No Fee representation to eligible claimants, which means you don’t have to pay any of our legal fees if the claim is unsuccessful, subject to the agreed terms and conditions.
