Fatal injuries are irreversible and if you feel that your doctor or GP has been negligent towards you, and as a result you have been left with fatal injuries, you could be eligible to make a claim to cover any potential costs that you have incurred.

What might constitute a fatal injury?

There are a number of situations where a failure to provide an adequate diagnosis can lead to a fatal injury. Some situations where this might occur include the diagnosis of a potentially serious injury such as cancer or a debilitating condition which could have been prevented if the appropriate action had been taken at the right time. Fatal injuries are generally injuries that have gone past the point where they can be treated, or injuries which will lead to a certain death. 

What are some common examples of where I might look to claim?

Claims can be made in any situation where you feel that you have been the victim of the negligence of another person. Some common examples where you could consider a compensation claim here include:

  • Claims for failure to adequately examine a patient
  • Claims for a failed referral
  • Claims for failure to diagnose a terminal disease
  • Claims for negligence during surgery
  • Claims for failure of examination equipment.
