Psychiatric negligence claims are often the most complex. The treatment and diagnosis of psychiatric conditions is not at the quality it should be in the UK, large organisations and often doctors dismiss symptoms far too easily.
Negligence claims for psychiatric care can be as a result of poor treatment, or the incorrect treatment of complicated mental illnesses. It also covers the misdiagnosis of these illnesses, and the assessment in relation to the psychological consequences you may have suffered because of trauma. Medical professionals learn about psychiatric cases and their treatments are constantly evolving, and this makes it a very complex area of medicine.
