Czy niewłaściwa diagnoza lekarska doprowadziła Cię do łez?

Czy niewłaściwa diagnoza lekarska doprowadziła Cię do łez?

Zaufanie lekarzowi pierwszego kontaktu to naturalna rzecz. Wierzymy że leki przepisane nam zadziałają a wyniki zostaną dokładnie zinterpretowane. Lekarz pierwszego kontaktu, czyli tutejszy GP, to nasz pierwszy punkt zaczepienia kiedy dzieje się coś złego z naszym zdrowiem.

Od czasu do czasu niestety lekarze dochodzą do niewłaściwych wniosków co do choroby która nam dokucza a błędna diagnoza może doprowadzić do dalszych powikłań, do pogorszenia się stanu zdrowia czy do stresu z tym związanego.

Jeśli cierpisz z powodu błędnej diagnozy, niezależnie od tego, czy byłeś obserwowany przez lekarza pierwszego kontaktu czy prywatnego lekarza, przez fizjoterapeutę lub innego pracownika służby zdrowia, możesz złożyć wniosek o otrzymanie odszkodowania.

Co to jest błędna diagnoza lekarska?

Czy przykre doświadczenie związane z wizytą lekarską możemy uznać za błąd lekarski? Co możemy zaliczyć do błędów lekarskich?

Prosimy przeanalizować poniższe przykłady błędów lekarskich, jeśli ktoryś z podanych scenariuszy przydarzył się ktoremuś z Was, być może jesteście ofiarami zaniedbania medycznego:

  • Twój lekarz nie zdołał zdiagnozować choroby która Ci dolega i z tego powodu doszło do pogorszenia się Twojego zdrowia i pogorszenia się samopoczucia.
  • Twój lekarz, na podstawie błędnej diagnozy, przepisał Ci niewłaściwe lekarstwa które doprowadziły do pogorszenia się stanu zdrowia.
  • Twój lekarz zdiagnozował Twój stan zupełnie błędnie i z tego powodu z powodu choroby która naprawdę Ci doskwiera, doszło do długiego opóźnienia leczenia i pogorszenia się stanu zdrowia.

Przyklady opóźnionego rozpoznania choroby

Brak rozpoznania choroby podczas pierwszej wizyty może doprowadzić do dalszych komplikacji. Poniżej przedstawiamy przykłady niektórych stanów chorobowych, które mogą doprowadzić do poważnych powikłań, jeśli nie zostaną rozpoznane we wczesnej fazie:

Zapalenie wyrostka robaczkowego

Przy zapaleniu wyrostka robaczkowego należy pilnie podjąć jak najszybsze kroki w celu usunięcia wyrostka. Jeśli Twój pęcherz pęknie, może to spowodować zakażenie lub rozwój ropnia lub zatrucie krwi. Każdy z tych symptomów może zagrażać życiu. Jeśli zgłaszasz ból w prawej dolnej części podbrzusza, a także jeśli zgłaszasz inne objawy, takie jak wysoka temperatura, wymioty i biegunka, a lekarz ogólny lub oddział ratunkowy nie zadziałał szybko, możesz złożyć wniosek o odszkodowanie za błędną diagnose.

CES (Cauda Equina Syndrome)- Zespół Ogona Końskiego

Zespół ogona końskiego to charakterystyczny zespół objawów neurologicznych powstający wskutek uszkodzenia końcowego odcinka rdzenia kręgowego, noszącego nazwę ogona końskiego. Ten stan zdrowia wymaga natychmiastowej opieki lekarskiej aby zapobiec przesuwaniu się dysku przed nerwem. Wskazania do rozpoczęcia natychmiastowego leczenia to utrata sensacji w obszarze narządów płciowych, nietrzymanie moczu i zatrzymanie moczu. Jeśli zgłosiłeś takie objawy lekarzowi medycznemu i lekarz nie zadziałał, możesz zgłosić wniosek o odszkodowanie za błędną diagnose.

Ciąża pozamaciczna

Ciąża pozamaciczna pojawia się gdy zapłodnione jajo osadza w w jednym z jajowodów, poza jamą macicy. Jeśli embrion urośnie, jajowód się rozciąga, a jeśli ciąża trwa i nie zostaje przerwana, może dojść do pęknięcia jajowodu. Pęknięcie jajowodu powoduje ból i krwawienie, które wymagają natychmiastowej opieki lekarskiej. Wiele roszczeń o opóźnienie w diagnozowaniu ciąży pozamacicznej spowodowane jest bólem i cierpieniem z powodu opóźnienia diagnozy, a nie uszkodzeniem samego jajowodu. Jeśli u pacjentki wystąpiło opóźnienie w diagnozie ciąży pozamacicznej, może ubiegać się o odszkodowanie.

Zapalenie opon mózgowych

Bakteryjne zapalenie opon mózgowych jest stanem zagrażającym życiu i musi być traktowane jako przypadek medyczny. Objawy to wysoka gorączka, nieuleczalna wysypka, wymioty, ból szyi, senność i konwulsje. Jeśli lekarz pierwszego kontaktu nie zauważył objawów zapalenia opon mózgowych u dorosłego lub u dziecka, powinieneś rozważyć, czy możesz zgłosić wniosek o odszkodowanie za błędną diagnose.

Zapalenie otrzewnej

Zatrucie krwi lub rozwój ropnia to bezpośrednie skutki pęknięcia wyrostka robaczkowego – taki stan może zagrażać życiu a nawet spowodować smierć. Jeśli zgłaszasz ból w prawym dolnym rogu podbrzusza wraz z takimi objawami jak wysoka temperatura, wymioty i biegunka a lekarz pierwszego kontaktu lub oddział ratunkowy nie zadziałają szybko, możesz wystąpić z roszczeniem odszkodowawczym.

Krwotok podpajęczynówkowy

Krwotok podpajeczynówkowy to wewnętrzny krwotok mózgu. Typowe objawy obejmują sztywność karku, wymioty, wrażliwość na światło (fotofobia) i problemy ze wzrokiem. Często objawy pacjenta mogą zostać błędnie przypisane migrenie lub bólom głowy, ale jest to kombinacja objawów, które powinny ostrzegać profesjonaliste przed faktem że mogło dojść do krwawienia mózgu.

Jeśli czujesz, że Twoje zdrowie uległo pogorszeniu w wyniku błędnej diagnostyki, skontaktuj się z naszą firmą, która ma wyspecjalizowany oddział zajmujący się zaniedbaniami klinicznymi i dentystycznymi, a także wnioskami o błędne diagnozy.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists can be vulnerable and exposed to injury on the roads, and can be left with serious injuries if they are involved in a road collision.

Although many riders are skilled in their driving and are hopefully well protected with the right riding gear, this cannot prevent all injuries.

Injuries such as broken bones, whiplash, plexus injuries, serious head and spinal injuries, and even fatal injuries are common.

The trauma of a motorcycle accident can last far beyond the treatment for your injuries.

Rehabilitation may be required for many years to recover from your injuries.

Many of those involved in such motorbike accidents are of working age, and are often the main household earners. This means that families can be left in financial hardship after a motorcycle accident.

Many vulnerable motorcyclists are also those who work in the cities as delivery and despatch riders.

Even in what is considered a minor collision, motorcyclists can suffer open fractures to elbows, shattering elbow joints. This means that with an injury such as this you cannot even carry out simple day to day tasks like eating or getting dressed independently.  A recent survey noted that injuries to the lower extremities are the most common type of motorcycle accident.  This includes broken bones as mentioned, and also more serious injuries that involve the loss of limbs, loss of toes, severe burns, torn muscles and tissue, and deep cuts.

Sometimes riders wear inappropriate leg gear such as jeans, etc. Another common injury is road rash, which happens more in summer rather than winter when bike riders tend to wear T-shirts rather than full protective leathers or padded coats, and end up scraping off the skin which then needs thoroughly cleaning, dressing and the discomfort can last for weeks, especially around the joints and other moving parts.

The following are examples of common motorbike accident scenarios:-

  1. Third party pulls out in front of the biker;
  2. Third party rear ends biker;
  3. Third party turns right on overtaking biker;
  4. Third party cuts corner in front of biker;
  5. Third party changes lane into biker’s path;
  6. Car attempts a U-turn into path of biker;
  7. Third party pulls out into path of overtaking biker;
  8. Biker overtakes on bend into path of third party;
  9. Third party reverses into biker;
  10. Third party exits roundabout in wrong lane;
  11. Third party continues on roundabout in wrong lane.

Always wear a helmet, and always wear good protective gear when you go out on your motorbike, including protective boots/shoes and gloves.

A good quality motorbike jacket and trousers with the relevant protection will hopefully help to minimise some of the injuries above if ever you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a motorbike road traffic accident.

If you have suffered a motorbike accident and need help and advice, then please don’t hesitate to contact our specialist team at Graham M Riley & Co Solicitors Ltd.

Back injuries at work

Back injuries at work

Back problems are the number one cause of time off work in the UK, causing roughly 20% of work place absences, and over 10million working days lost each year.

Back injuries can also have serious consequences for a person’s domestic life, especially where the mobility is limited, and every day tasks are difficult or impossible to perform.

If your back injury was caused by working conditions, you may be able to claim compensation from your employer. This counts for both claims for injuries with both temporary and permanent work related back conditions.

What causes back injuries at work?

Most back injuries at work are caused by heavy or repetitive lifting, carrying, pushing and pulling.

Other repetitive motions can damage the back over time, including twisting, bending and stretching.

Back injuries from lifting boxes at work and back pain from stacking shelves at work are very common place.

Posture and uncomfortable work position can also both adversely affect the back, as can repetitive tasks, prolonged stressed positions and working while physically tired.

Professions with the highest incident rate of back injuries amongst workers are generally those who are the most physically demanding, including construction, agriculture and nursing.

When is an employer responsible for a worker injury injuring their back?

The manual handling operations Regulations 1992 impose strict limits on the amount of weights that an individual worker should be asked to handle over the course of a shift. Wherever possible a mechanised solution to lifting by hand should be considered.  Where manual handling is unavoidable, tasks must be risk assessed and properly supervised.  Employers must also provide staff with training in safe lifting techniques.  Under more general workplace legislation, employers must provide staff with a safe system of work and safe working premises, with all reasonable measures taken to minimise the risk of back injuries among workers.

Compensation for an injured back from work

In the most serious categories, the level of back pain compensation will depend on a large part of the ongoing consequences of the injury and the degree of back pain suffered.

Cases where paralysis is not involved but factors such as impotence and incontinence are, will lead to awards between £64,250 and £108,000.

Where other special features such as sexual difficulties or the requirement of future surgery occur, awards will be in the region of £52,000.

Any other back injury resulting in long term disability or severe impairment will lead to awards between £24,750 and £44,500.

Most back injuries and associated back pain are classed as moderate.

Where there is some residual disability, including the possibility of future osteoarthritis, awards will vary between £17,750 and £24,750.

Damage to ligaments, muscles and soft tissues which may result in relapse will result in awards between £8,000 and £17,750.

Minor back injuries such as strains and sprains, where there has been no surgery and a full recovery is made will lead to awards in between £5,000 and £8,000 where recovery is within about 5 years, and up to £5,000 where recovery is within about 2 years.

Claiming compensation for a back injury from work is complex and there is a great detail at stake in terms of the level of compensation awarded.

Gathering evidence

It is essential if you have an accident at work that it is reported immediately and entered in the accident report book.

It is also important to obtain names, address and contact numbers of any witnesses who saw the accident occur and also to keep a daily diary of how you feel in respect of physical and mental wellbeing and what you could do prior to the accident and what you cannot do now.

This also includes recording down sleep patterns and disturbed and undisturbed sleep.

Graham Riley & Co Solicitors Ltd have been protecting and supporting clients for many years and enjoys a reputation nationwide for trusted legal advice.

We are specialists in work related back injury compensation claims having successfully represented employees who have been injured across a range of industries.

Можно ли получить компенсацию если вы поскользнулись на льду?

Можно ли получить компенсацию если вы поскользнулись на льду?

В связи с плохими погодными условиями можно поскользнуться на скользкой замерзшей поверхности,упасть и получить травмы.В результате-недрудоспособность,финансовые потери,хождение по врачам и другие неудобства связанные с травмой.В таких случаях есть возможность получить компенсацию,хотя каждый случай идивидуален.
Для этого нужно собрать подробную информацию, где конкретно вы получили травмы,и какова была поверхность.
Случилось ли это на улице,за которую отвечает местный миниципалитет,или же это произошло уже на территории вашей работы.Нужно выяснить,каковы были погодные условия перед тем как произошел несчастный случай.
То есть,был ли снег,если да,то как давно выпал снег,или как давно поверхность была замерзшая или скользкая,a также понадобится много других деталей.
Существуют различые варианты ситуаций.Допустим,вы упали на тротуаре идя по улице ,за которую отвечает местный муниципалитет, то для получения компенсации придется доказать,что миниципалитет не сделал все возможное,для что бы состояние тротуара на этой улице было безопасным для прохожих.
Для начало нужно выяснить,была ли это тихая или оживленная улица .Чем оживленней улица,тем больше шансов возложить вину на местный миниципалитет за неподдержание тротуара в безопасном состоянии.
Затем,нужно выяснить, было ли осведомлен местный орган власти об опасном состоянии улицы.Для этого понадобятся данные о прогнозе погоды ,а также как долго держалась снежная или морозная погода.
Следует принимать во внимание,что местные власти не в силах обезопасить каждую улочку за минимальный срок.Случается так,что человек поскользнулся и получил травмы,а винить некого,так как суд пришел к выводу,что местный муниципалитет не имел возможности предотвратить ту или иную травму.
Но случается и так,что суд приходит и к противоположному выводу.Такие дела непредсказуемы,и для этого лучше обратиться к юристу.
Если инцидент произошел на территории частных владений,скажем при входе на территорию предприятия,где вы работаете,или же на парковке возле магазина,то шансы на успех значительно возрастут.
Ваш работодатель,так же как и владелец территории,обязаны соблюдать все определенные меры предосторожности,а значит,при возможности,посыпать территорию солью,или же перекрыть опасные проходы,или как минимум вывесить специальные предупредительные знаки об опасности падения.
Стоит учесть,все эти факторы не гарантируют вам получение компенсации, все будет зависит от всевозможных деталей,
насколько было реально успеть привести территорию владения или предприятия в безопасное состояние.
В случае же если вы упали на парковке маленького магазина,то скорее всего,суд посчитает,что трудно ожидать от маленького магазина,что он успеет привести в безопасное состояние всю парковку и пешеходные проходы.
Eсли же инцидент произошел на территории большого предприятия с многочисленным штатом работников,то вероятность выигрыша возрастает.Получается что,шансы на получение компенсации будут зависеть от обстоятельств.
Если вы получили травму,упав на скользкой или заснеженной поверхности,то стоит неотлагательно обратиться к опытным юристам.
