Diabetes Claims We Assist With:

Failure to spot the signs of diabetes or a delay in diagnosis

Doctors understand the importance of recognising the symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes as soon as possible to reduce the risk of patients developing serious complications such as blindness, kidney failure, strokes, heart attack and the possibility of amputation. Despite medical professionals' awareness of diabetes, some people are avoidably harmed when the condition is failed to be diagnosed or the diagnosis is delayed.

If you have suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Failure to carry out tests, test errors or misinterpretation of results

To confirm diabetes, or rule it out, a doctor normally carries out a urine test and arranges for a blood test to check blood sugar levels. Sadly this is not always the case as some patients are harmed unnecessarily because tests are not carried out, delayed, inaccurate or the results are misinterpreted. 

If you or a loved one have suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Failure to refer the patient to a specialist

Diabetes is a serious condition that affects many parts of the body. Although GPs normally diagnose diabetes, many patients may find it useful to be referred to a specialist to help them better manage the condition. Dieticians, nurses, ophthalmologists, and podiatrists are just some of the medical professionals that can assist people to live a better quality of life. Unfortunately, this is not always the case when some people are avoidably harmed when their condition is not properly managed.

If you or a loved one have suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.
