If you have sustained an injury as the direct result of bad treatment from a medical professional, then you should be looking to file an official complaint, or sue the person(s) concerned. It is important that you do this as otherwise the doctor may carry on being negligent and cause other people injuries, or make their illnesses worse.
It can also help you to feel vindication for whatever stress and pain you have suffered as a result of this doctor’s negligence, and help you to pay for the very best medical care you can get. This is how you can make a start on your compensation claim.
Get copies of your medical records
Any doctor has to hand over copies of your own medical records if you ask for them, as they are your property.
Your medical records will prove that you were treated by a specific individual for a specific problem, and what has happened during this treatment and where your health is at now. This is important evidence for your case.
Speak to another doctor
You need to find a neutral medical professional who is willing to go to court on your behalf and speak for you. This person will be a witness to the fact that your treatment was negligent and that your doctor is at fault for any problems you are currently suffering from.
