There are currently 4 million people in the UK living with diabetes and a further 12 million at risk of getting type 2 diabetes in the future.
Sadly this is leading to a crisis in diabetic care. Mistakes can be made at the diagnosis stage, whilst monitoring and treating patients and during pregnancy. If you have developed complications from diabetes as a result of poor medical care you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

Common diabetic related negligence cases and injuries that our lawyers advise upon include:
- Failure to diagnose gestational diabetes in pregnancy
