Have you been injured as the result of negligent treatment by a GP?
Powell & Co is able to offer specialist advice and assistance in bringing claims for compensation regarding substandard GP care and treatment.
Our specialist team has considerable experience in handling claims against GPs. The spectrum of injuries in claims made against GPs is understandably quite wide given that GPs are ‘general practitioners’ but in our experience we often encounter GP negligence in cases involving delays in diagnosis of cancer, infections and sepsis, fractures and heart attacks.
Whatever the injury we take care to provide a personal service, combining our legal know-how and expertise with a caring and empathetic approach. You can be sure that we will be with you all the way through your compensation claim.
Receive the compensation that you deserve
How much you will receive in compensation will depend upon a number of factors including the nature and severity of your injury, the effect of your injury on your day to day life, whether you now need care and assistance you did not need before, your mobility needs, and whether your injury is likely to get worse in the future. If you have had to take unpaid time off work or are unable to return to work, it may also be possible to claim for loss of earnings. It is important to keep receipts in respect of any equipment you have had to purchase or other expenses as the result of your injury as it may be possible to include these as part of your claim.
The team at Powell & Co will use all of their expertise to get you the compensation that you deserve. Please bear in mind that there are time limits for bringing a claim and so it is important to instruct solicitors sooner rather than later so there is sufficient time for a thorough investigation to be conducted before proceedings are issued.
