Our medical negligence team was recently successful on behalf of a client who had suffered a permanent injury to his back, which might have been resolved or improved had he had an appropriate, proper and earlier diagnosis or referral from his GP.
Despite presenting sufficient symptoms to warrant a referral on for an expert consultation with an orthopaedic surgeon or for a further scan investigation, the GP failed, on a number of occasions, to do either.
We fought hard on behalf of our client, against the GP’s defence organisation, and despite a long held denial of liability, we commenced Court proceedings, and we were finally able to negotiate a very good settlement on behalf of our client.
Our expert medical negligence team regularly handles claims in respect of GP’s failing to refer, along with many other types of medical negligence claims. For details of some of the types of claims we handle, please visit us at our website www.ringroselaw.co.uk or contact us on our online free chat, or telephone us to discuss any possible medical negligence circumstances you would welcome some free advice on.
