Whenever you seek medical care, your GP, consultant or any medical practitioner owes you a duty of care. If the treatment you receive is negligent, that is to say that the duty of care is breached, and you are harmed as a direct result of that breach, the treatment provider can be held accountable and liable to pay damages.
If a medical professional has led to a patients existing injury getting worse, they would be liable for their actions. Negligent actions from medical professionals you could claim for and do occur are:
- Incorrect treatment
- Surgical mistakes
If the medical provider accepts responsibility in the initial stages of your incident, you would be eligible to claim interim compensation which are payments that are given in the first stages of your claim prior to the final compensation settlement payment. You could use your interim payments for rehabilitation, medical costs and for your day to day duties.
