About Screening Negligence
Screening processes are essential as they can help to predict future medical problems. However, mistakes can happen - and failure to identify an ailment can have serious consequences.
There are various mistakes made during screening processes that can lead to medical negligence claims being made. These include:
- Screening results being lost
- People not being adequately referred for screening
- People being given the all-clear for an illness they later suffer from
- Misread or misinterpreted results, leading to an illness not being treated correctly
Making a Claim for Compensation
It is important that screening negligence claims are made so that people can receive the compensation to which they are entitled. This money can make a huge difference if your or your family's life has been seriously negatively impacted by avoidable errors made by medical professionals who should have the knowledge, skills and resources to perform their vital roles without making mistakes that can have far-reaching consequences.
Additionally, making claims such as this can help to identify any potential issues within the health system that need to be addressed, while also ensuring medical staff are held accountable for the errors they have made.
