GP negligence solicitors

Our GP negligence solicitors have helped hundreds of people claim the maximum compensation from their GPs insurers. The investigation process is straight forward and relatively swift. 

Making a negligence claim against your GP

The role of the GP is to identify when you need to be referred for specialist treatment and to arrange assessment with appropriate urgency. GPs also manage many conditions themselves and provide basic general medical treatment. 

Medical negligence compensation claims against GPs often stem from a failure to identify the seriousness of presenting illness and a failure either to refer for specialist assessment or failure to refer quickly enough. 

GP negligence cases can be catastrophic for the people involved as many conditions, if identified and treated quickly enough, result in full recovery, while, if left, result in long-term disability or death. 

GPs act often as the liaison between hospitals and patients and so system errors at the GP practice can lead to further personal injury to patients. For example: A GP’s failure to recall for tests or a GP’s failure to refer on to another speciality. 

GPs provide much treatment themselves and errors can occur in the prescription of drugs and surgical procedures.

How can we help you?

Making a claim for GP negligence is a straightforward process.

How to make a GP negligence claim

Our expert GP negligence claim solicitors need to show that your GP has failed to give you proper care and treatment (has been medically or clinically negligent). We also need to show that because of your GP's failure you have suffered personal injury. 

We will discuss your GP negligence case with you in detail, take your statement and obtain your medical records. We then ask an independent GP to confirm, that on the basis of your evidence, the care you received can be criticised. The next step is often to ask a senior independent medical consultant exactly how your condition would have been improved had the GP treated you properly.

I am overwhelmed by the outcome in terms of the monetary value and know I should consider it as a near a 'sorry' as I am likely to get from the hospital. It will be nice to start the process of closure on the whole issue now and look towards the future for us as a family.
