Mental Heath Claims

If you have been affected by a failure in the provision of mental health care, our specialist lawyers can help you obtain compensation

Mental Health Claims

Psychological injuries can arise following forms of medical negligence such as cosmetic surgery claims, which can impact both physical and mental health, as well as from failures in mental health care. Some types of clinical negligence are severe enough to cause life-changing injuries such as depression, panic attacks, insomnia and anxiety.

Am I eligible for a claim?

If you have been affected by a failure in the provision of mental health care, our specialist team will handle your enquiry with sensitivity and professionalism.

Claims that may be eligible for compensation include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosing psychiatric illness
  • Inappropriate prescription of medication
  • Failure to investigate symptoms and their potential causes, or to act on results
  • Inadequate assessment and treatment of those admitted to hospital
  • Failure to detain a patient compulsorily under section
  • Inadequate monitoring in the community
  • Failure to prevent an avoidable suicide
