Are you claiming compensation in Teignbridge after psychotherapy?
When people make a claim for clinical negligence, they often do so because they’ve been hurt physically. If, for example, a surgeon carries out the wrong operation on them, or they are given the wrong medication, their health may suffer. They may be thinking of claiming compensation in Teignbridge.
However, this isn’t the only type of medical negligence that can result in claiming compensation in Teignbridge. In the UK, more and more people are seeking help for psychological and emotional issues. Whilst some of these conditions, such as schizophrenia, may have a biological cause, others may be caused by environmental issues and require different types of treatment.
Although healthcare for psychological issues is improving, in many cases it is still inadequate. Indeed, some patients are being wrongly diagnosed with psychological or emotional issues only to find out later that they are actually suffering from a physical issue, such as a hormone or dopamine imbalance.
Unfortunately, the wrong diagnosis or the incorrect treatment can have catastrophic consequences, and patients can suffer needlessly. Although patients suffering with these types of illnesses may not have any outward signs of illness, this doesn’t negate their pain or suffering and it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t think of claiming compensation in Teignbridge when they are entitled to do so.
If you or a family member or friend have sought treatment for this type of illness and you’ve been harmed because of clinical negligence, it may be possible for you to claim compensation from those responsible.
If you’re still unwell or receiving treatment, you may not feel able to make a claim straight away, but this shouldn’t prevent you from obtaining the compensation you deserve. Fortunately, we’re able to help claimants for up to three years after their injuries or illness has occurred, so there could still be plenty of time for you to make your claim and obtain compensation.
If you’ve never made a claim for compensation before, or you’ve never taken legal action at all before, you may be wondering where to start and what to do next. If you’d like to find out more about obtaining compensation without paying expensive legal bills, we can help.
