Diabetic claims

Clinical Negligence can occur through the treatment of diabetes when a medical professional does not provide an appropriate quality of care towards their patient. This most frequently happens when diabetes is misdiagnosed, or if there is a delay in diagnosis and/or if treatment and care following diagnosis is not properly carried out. 

Complications surrounding diabetes can occur as a result of substandard care from a healthcare professional, which ultimately could have been prevented with better practice. Delays in diagnosis can be one of the main factors in diabetes claims. Research suggests that Type 2 diabetes patients often face a two-year delay before diagnosis.

People with diabetes are much more likely to suffer from health complications than the general population.  Diabetics are two and a half times more likely to have a heart attack and twice as likely to have a stroke than a non-diabetic.  Therefore, it is crucial that your condition is handled swiftly and correctly, to avoid any further challenges.

If you or a loved one has suffered from complications of diabetes that could have been prevented, you may be entitled to make a diabetes compensation claim. Our expert team can help you with this.

At Price Slater Gawne, our expert team of specialist Clinical Negligence solicitors will make sure that you are fully supported throughout the claims process.  We have more than 30 years’ combined experience dealing with diabetic and vascular claims, so be assured we will bring our renowned expertise and highly rated legal time to your case.

Vascular claims

Vascular disease is an abnormal condition of the blood vessels – arteries and veins – and if undiagnosed and/or untreated, can lead to serious consequences such as disability or even death.

The most common vascular diseases are stroke, peripheral artery disease (PAD), abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), carotid artery disease (CAD), pulmonary embolism (blood clots), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), varicose veins (VV), critical limb ischemia (CLI) and arteriovenous malformation (AVM).

In addition, we also work with clients suffering peripheral artery disease (PAD), a common condition where a build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries restricts blood supply to leg muscles. It’s also known as peripheral vascular disease (PVD).

The symptoms of PAD often develop slowly, over time. If your symptoms develop quickly, or get suddenly worse, it could be a sign of a serious problem requiring immediate treatment. Claims for compensation resulting from a vascular negligence can also arise as a result of:

  • failure on behalf of the surgeon or a doctor to diagnose a vascular disease in a prompt and reasonable manner
  • failure in interpretation of tests results leading to a delay in diagnosis and treatment of the vascular disease
  • an insufficient or unreasonable treatment provided such as failure to provide anticoagulant medication to a patient with a history of DVT leading to pulmonary embolism
  • failure to properly consider and manage the risks of vascular injury arising from surgery
  • failure in management of ulceration or pressure sores in patients with diabetes therefore leading to avoidable amputations

Claims can also arise as a result of problems during vascular surgery including minor procedures and the types of injuries vary but can include:

  • nerve damage
  • brain damage
  • paralysis
  • haemorrhage
