How to make a medical complaint with a personal injury lawyer
If you don’t feel that your doctor has treated you the way you should be treated, and that this has led to further problems with your illness or condition then you are within your rights to make a complaint, and you may even be able to make a claim for compensation. The first step, if you are not happy with the care offered by your doctor, is to make a complaint. This makes your issues official and helps to back up your compensation claim later if you choose to make one. Here are some tips on making a complaint.
Write everything down
Make a list of everything that has happened, including dates of diagnosis and treatments that have been prescribed. Try not to miss anything out, and include everything that you think may be relevant. This will help to back up the assertions you are making in your complaint.
Talk to someone about whether your complaint is viable
You may feel that you have a good case for a complaint, but you should check with others whether they see it the same way as you. If you are stressed and upset by something then you may not see it as clearly as others, and you don’t want to make a complaint if you don’t have a reason to.
Before you start making your complaint, you should decide what you actually want the outcome of this complaint to be. You can then add this to your complaint. If you don’t know what outcome you want then it may be worthwhile considering why you are complaining in the first place.
