Pursuing legal action against any individual is a stressful process, but suing someone such as a GP can be even more difficult. GPs represent those we put trust in; a profession built on care and professionalism. Doctors and particularly GPs are valued and respected members of society who we develop a rapport and even affection for our as we interact with them through the years.

However, there are still occasions that arise when for whatever reason, we do not receive the level of care, service and professionalism that we’re entitled to. All GPs have a duty of care to serve their patients’ needs to a competent and professional standard. When this does not occur, it’s only right that you should take action to rectify matters and seek recompense wherever it is deserved. Some of the issues that might require action to be taken include:

  • Failure to carry out a proper and competent medical examination
  • Failure to perform or arrange tests appropriate to the patients’ condition and needs
  • Misdiagnosing an illness or condition
  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Failure to provide or arrange proper and appropriate treatment
  • Failure to refer to hospital where necessary or referring you to the wrong specialist
  • Performing inappropriate procedures or performing them without correct expertise
  • Failing to act on information provided by other medical professionals

The above list is by no means comprehensive, but if you have experienced any of these issues, or others, and you have suffered injury, illness or loss as a result, then it’s time to get in touch to seek the appropriate action and compensation.

How much will making a claim cost?

Cost is understandably a concern when suing anybody, however here at Been Let Down we normally pursue medical negligence cases under what’s known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). These are basically exactly the same as ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangements, designed to make sure that you incur no financial burden as a result of pursuing your claim.

From your initial consultations with our specialist medical negligence solicitors, we will have assessed your case on its particular circumstances and merits. If we take on your case then it means we think it has a more than reasonable chance of success, which is why we’d offer a CFA. In a CFA we agree a success fee upfront, and in the event that we take your case to a successful conclusion, the success fee would apply. This would be an agreed upon percentage of the eventual settlement; if the case is not successful then no fee would apply.

Whatever medical issue you have experienced that has led to injury or loss, you should not delay. Please get in touch with Been Let Down straight away, using the simple initial claims form on our website, or make contact over the phone. Unlike with many other firms and services, with Been Let Down you’ll be talking to a specialist medical negligence solicitor from day one. After taking the initial details we will call you back to discuss your case more extensively to see how we can help. All initial consultations are free and without obligation.

Give us a call, use our online form or drop into our offices where we can help you get your medical negligence issue resolved and ensure that you receive all due compensation. Also remember that statutory limitation applies, meaning that any medical negligence claim must be made within three years of the negligence having occurred. However, medical cases are complex, so there are certain circumstances in which that time limit may not apply. We will advise you if this is the case, but it’s important not to delay and risk missing any legal time limits that might apply.
