Sexual Health / STDs

We place a lot of trust in medical professionals and often don’t question their procedures. However, if a patient does not give informed consent to a medical procedure, the medical professional may be liable if the procedure results in any injury or harm.

The rise of STDs or Sexually Transmitted Diseases can have significant and damaging long term implications on patients. In many cases the use of antibiotics can be an effective treatment in preventing these diseases from spreading and causing long term problems.

This data will only be used by Youngs Law for processing your query and for no other purpose.

However, patients who are taking precautionary steps in having regular check-ups are not being diagnosed with vital symptoms being missed by GPs and sexual health practitioners.

The failure to diagnose a Sexually Transmitted Disease can be catastrophic on the patient. In many cases, the early diagnosis can be key to preventing long term problems which can include infertility and in some examples genital disfigurement.

If you think you may have a medical negligence claim involving sexual health, contact us today.

Being told that you have contracted an STD can be extremely distressing and worrying, and we at Swain & Co Solicitors offer the sensitivity needed to help you with your claim for compensation.

In some cases, the early diagnosis can be key for life expectancy especially if a patient has been diagnosed with HIV. Further, patients should expect on-going support and treatment with their condition, but on too many occasions we are finding this simply isn’t being offered.

Frequent problems that we are finding include:

  • Failure to diagnose an STD at the earliest time possible
  • Failing to recognise the major (red flag) symptoms
  • Specific failures in the diagnosis of chlamydia, gonorrhoea, genital warts and herpes
  • Failure to diagnose and treat HIV
  • Infertility

Youngs Law have an expert clinical negligence team that can guide you through the process from beginning to end in this distressing time and help you claim the compensation you deserve.

No Win No Fee

Youngs Law offer no win, no fee for all of our medical negligence claims, so if you don’t win your case and receive compensation, you don’t pay us a penny. We will also wait for any fee to be paid to us when you receive you compensation and not upon winning you case.

If you think you may have a medical negligence claim involving genetics, contact us today.
