Your doctor has a duty of care to you, to give you the exact advice and treatment that you need to help you to get better when you are ill. If you feel that your doctor has not done this, and has caused you to become more ill or caused you further illness or injury because of it, it is natural to feel angry.
You may be able to make North Yorkshire van accident claims if your doctor has treated you badly and this has caused you problems. You should work out whether or not you have a good case for a successful ‘no win, no fee*’ accident claim before you even consider making a claim at all, but if you do decide to go ahead, here are some ways to do it.
- Speak to a lawyer. If you can find an experienced lawyer who is willing to take on your case then this is the easiest way for you to make a claim against your doctor, without you having to get too involved, or having to know anything about the laws surrounding your situation.
- Gather evidence. A doctor is not allowed to keep your medical records from you, so if you ask for them you should be given copies, and these may be critical in helping you to discover exactly what went wrong and whether or not your doctor was negligent in their treatment of you or not. Ask for these medical records before you start making your claim, so that you can be sure that you have one.
- Speak to another doctor. A second doctor should be able to look you over and look through your medical records to give you a good idea as to whether you have been badly treated by our doctor or not. If they believe that your doctor was negligent, you should ask them if they would be willing to speak for you in court, to prove that your doctor deserves to pay out on a compensation claim.
