General Practice Medical Claims – Did Your GP Fail You?
We all need to visit a General Practitioner for a variety of reasons throughout our lives, whether minor or major. These medical professionals are trusted implicitly with all our health queries and problems. We visit our GP for advice and peace of mind and for referral for other medical procedures when necessary. Above all, we expect procedures to be followed and to be given the care and medical attention we both need and deserve.
When such care falls short of standards or is categorised as negligent, you are also entitled to seek appropriate redress via the judicial system. This may result in a claim for compensation for medical negligence. The team at O’Hare Solicitors is experienced in dealing with medical negligence in General Practitioner care. We have dealt with many medical cases which have resulted in successful claims for compensation.
