Claims for Misdiagnosis / Delay in Diagnosis

Receiving a diagnosis for any condition can be extremely distressing. However, receiving a diagnosis and later being informed the diagnosis is incorrect can be devastating, particularly if the new diagnosis is worse than the first.

Whatever the circumstances behind your illness, if you have suffered a delay in diagnosis of an illness, you may be entitled to make a claim. A delay in diagnosis can occur when a condition is either missed or misdiagnosed because the symptoms displayed are not typical. However, a delay in diagnosis can also occur due to insufficient investigations by healthcare professionals, failure to make appropriate referrals and follow up  abnormal results. This is known as clinical negligence.

Sometimes a delay in diagnosis can have devastating consequences, for example, a delay in diagnosing meningitis can be life threatening and a delay in diagnosis of certain types of cancer can reduce life expectancy.

You may be able to obtain compensation if you or a loved one have experienced:

  • A delay in diagnosis of a condition / illness
  • A misdiagnosis that caused a condition / illness to worsen, or which limited your treatment options / life expectancy

Our clinical negligence team is highly experienced in investigating these types of claims and has the knowledge and expertise to secure the compensation that you are entitled to.  Call us today for a no obligation chat on 0121 355 0011.
