GP Negligence Claims

Patients often have a closer relationship with their GP than any other doctor and will place considerable trust in their judgement. If their advice is negligent, this can have serious consequences for the patient’s health.

Lees Solicitors have acted on behalf of many people who have been let down by GP negligence, and we can help if you wish to make a claim for the illness or injury you have suffered.

dealing with GP negligence

A GP deals with a vast array of medical complaints from their patients, and it is their role to assess and diagnose their condition and either treat it themselves or refer the patient to a specialist in hospital.

If this assessment or treatment is wrong, or a diagnosis is missed entirely, the patient is at risk of their condition becoming much worse than it otherwise may have been. For example, a missed cancer diagnosis could mean the difference between a treatable problem and a terminal disease.

This not only leaves the patient in a poor state of health, they must also deal with the emotional effects of being let down by someone they trusted.

At Lees, we appreciate that our clients require compensation for the negligent care they have received, but may also be struggling with guilt about claiming against a GP they may have known for many years.

Our years of experience in dealing with these GP claims means we know how to approach the situation with the required sensitivity, helping you through the process and discussing all your options.

We can provide practical suggestions such as transferring to a new GP or practice, as well as representing you in any legal action.
