Sexually Transmitted Disease | No Win No Fee Guaranteed | 100% Compensation

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.

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.

"Swain & Co Solicitors can assist in bringing a claim for compensation that you are entitled to."

Melanie Lidstone-Land | Senior Associate in Medical Negligence and Personal Injury

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

Swain & Co Solicitors 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.

We offer a free initial appointment and can act for you on a No Win No Fee basis. Call our specialist clinical negligence team today.
