Vast Increase in Diabetes Prescriptions
Who are BL Claims Solicitors
BL Claims Solicitors specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and travel claims, providing our clients with hands-on support, nationally.
We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset
In the clinical negligence team we are often approached by people who are seeking to pursue a claim, and who suffer from diabetes. The problems associated with diabetes can however mean that sufferers find it harder to successfully pursue a claim because of the higher risk of them experiencing complications after medical treatment. It is harder for us to establish that the injuries or symptoms they have developed and wish to claim for are the result of negligent medical treatment as opposed to simply being an unfortunate complication of their diabetes.
Whilst you cannot eliminate the possibility of developing diabetes, it is important that people are aware of the risk factors (obesity, lack of exercise, smoking, excess alcohol consumption) so that they can take steps to reduce their own personal risk. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, it is also imperative to keep your blood sugar levels under control, to avoid potentially very debilitating complications.
