What Is A GP Negligence Claim

GP Negligence

A GP negligence claim can be defined in a variety of ways. Generally, it pertains to situations in which a GP has failed in their duty of care. This concept will be explained later in the guide. However, once this is demonstrated in a legal environment, it can be proved that the GP has acted in a negligent manner. If this is the case, then the claim against the GP has a greater chance of being successful.

Therefore, once you have demonstrated that your GP acted negligently and failed in their duty of care, you can attempt to win compensation. This compensation is designed to address your losses. These losses can include demonstrable financial expenditures, such as medical bills, travel costs, and lost wages. But it can also include more abstract damages, including compensation for the pain and suffering you have endured as a result of the negligence. With the correct legal assistance, you can ensure that a medical accident does not become too costly.

When making such a claim, there are a number of considerations you need to make. For instance, the GP negligence claims time limit is generally three years from the time of the accident. If, however, the patient was under the age of 18 at the time of the accident, the time limit begins on their 18th birthday. As well as this, you should consider the evidence you are able to provide in support of your claim, as well as which law firm is best placed to help you. We will cover these issues (and more) in this guide.
