Misdiagnosis Claims

Medical Misdiagnosis Compensation Claims

Medical misdiagnosis is a type of clinical negligence which can have a devastating effect on the victim’s life.  Whilst for the most part, medical professionals accurately diagnose a patient’s illness, there are instances where they neglect their duty of care by failing to efficiently diagnose their patient giving rise to legal claims.

Making a Misdiagnosis Claim

There are a number of different circumstances which can give rise to a potential misdiagnosis claim:

  • Your condition or injury is left undiagnosed;
  • You are told you have a condition which you do not in fact have; or
  • You are given an incorrect diagnosis and you actually have another condition.

Our experienced medical negligence solicitors understand that making a claim can seem like a daunting task if you or someone close to you has been the victim of misdiagnosis. Our lawyers will ensure that your claim is settled efficiently and will do everything in their power to achieve the highest level of compensation for you.

Common Misdiagnosis Claims

The following conditions are commonly misdiagnosed:

  • Appendicitis
  • Bowel Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Cauda Equina Syndrome
  • Colon Cancer
  • Crohnes Disease
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Diabetes
  • Fractures (undiagnosed)

  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Lung Cancer
  • Meningitis
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Sub Arachnoid Hemorrhage
  • Swine Flu
  • Tuberculosis

In order to make a claim it must be proven that the failure to provide treatment or the provision of incorrect treatment has caused further injury, pain or suffering. Whilst our expert solicitors will guide you through every step of your claim, it is also useful for you to keep a record of your case and retain any documents or medicine boxes which you have been prescribed.

Serious health problems can arise if incorrect or unsuitable medication has been administered as well as from the side effects of such medication. Failure to be treated for an illness that has been undiagnosed or the performance of an incorrect medical procedure can also severely damage health or even result in death.
