"clinical negligence claim"Diabetes is one of the common diseases affecting about 2.8 million people in the United Kingdom. Out of the 2.8 million, 5, 00,000 individuals are not aware about the disease they have.  Diabetes can be properly treated in diagnosed on time. There are many instances, where the doctors employed under the National Health Service (NHS) have failed to diagnose the condition efficiently. In many cases, a delay in diagnosis also became the cause of great sufferings for the patients. Wrong treatment, misdiagnosis and delay in treating the disease can urge the patients file a clinical negligence case.

Diabetes refers to the medical condition in which the sugar levels in the blood become high due to the lack of adequate production of insulin. Diabetes also occurs when the cells in the human body fails to respond to insulin properly. Hereditary factors and obesity are two chief reasons behind diabetes.

Some of the common symptoms of diabetes include fatigue, rapid loss of weight, excessive thirst, hunger and blurred vision. Diabetes, if left untreated, can cause loss of vision and reduced circulation. Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of diabetes can lead to serious complications and can file legal claim against the medical practitioner who misdiagnosed you.

There is a systematic process that needs to be followed to file a clinical negligence claim. Medical negligence solicitors can best suggest you the course of action while filing a diabetes negligence claim in a UK court. There are certain basic requirements that need to be fulfilled to prove the authenticity of the case. First of all, the medical negligence solicitor acting on behalf of a diabetes negligence victim will have to show that the accused doctor has not maintained the standard of care designated by the law of the United Kingdom. The solicitor needs to collect required medical reports showing the extent of damages caused to the patient due to the wrong treatment or misdiagnosis of the diabetic condition. The more serious is the effect of misdiagnosis, the greater is the chance of receiving high compensation.

In many instances, the medical negligence solicitors try to propose a mutual settlement between his client and the guilty party to help his client avoid the hassles of the court proceedings. These legal experts have excellent communication power and they can easily convince the accused party to accept it’s guilty and agree to go for a mutual out-of-the-court settlement. If the guilty party is willing to go for a mutual agreement, the solicitor working on behalf of the claimant will propose a certain amount of money that needs to be paid by the accused party. They accused party might or might not agree to pay the proposed amount of money to compensate the losses suffered by the patient.

The amount of compensation varies from case to case. The judges looking after diabetes negligence cases refer to the previous case and check the amount of compensation granted in those cases and then decides on the amount of compensation to be sanction in a particular case.
