Specialist diabetes claims solicitors

Our medical negligence team specialises in pursuing legal claims relating to diabetes. Our experienced team has won many diabetes negligence claims recovering substantial damages for our clients on a 'no win, no fee' basis.

Recent studies have indicated that certain medications can trigger diabetes, which if not treated correctly, can result in injuries.


What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition in which a person has high blood sugar levels (glucose) because:

  • the body isn’t producing enough insulin, or 
  • body cells do not properly respond to the insulin that is produced

Insulin is the hormone that converts carbohydrates, like sugars and starches, into energy. Diabetes can be caused by many factors such as obesity and genetics, but recently certain drugs have been associated with diabetes.

Diabetes symptoms

Some of the common indicators of diabetes are frequent urination, excessive thirst, hunger, weight loss, fatigue and irritability, and blurred vision. Advanced diabetes can cause serious conditions such as retinopathy, resulting in loss of vision, decreased circulation, and impotence.


Diabetes Claims

Diabetes can be treated incorrectly, and in some cases there can be a delay in diagnosis. This may result in serious and long-term complications and you may have a legal claim against your treating physician. If you have suffered as a result, contact us for further information.


Diabetes and antipsychotics

Studies have linked diabetes to the use of antipsychotic drugs, such as Zyprexa, Risperdal and Seroquel. Antipsychotics are a class of drugs that are used to treat psychotic conditions (any severe mental disorder in which contact with reality is lost or highly distorted). These conditions include schizophrenia, mania and delusional disorder. Antipsychotic drugs are often commonly used to treat bipolar disorder. These drugs have also been linked with other blood sugar disorders including hyperglycaemia.
