Delayed Diagnosis And Misdiagnosis Claims

If it can be proved that a diagnosis or further investigations or a referral to a specialist would have led to an earlier or different diagnosis based upon your presenting symptoms by a reasonable GP or Hospital doctor, then a failure to have done so by your treating clinician is likely to be judged as being medically negligent by the Court. As a result, you will be awarded damages by way of compensation, depending on the extent of your injuries or level of adverse outcome.

Examples include infections, viruses or cancer which then may spread through your body, involving your organs or bones which may leave you permanently disabled or even develop sepsis which can be fatal. Other scenarios may involve the administration of a drug which does not treat your condition as it has been incorrectly diagnosed, meaning it continues to get worse and cause you damage to your health.

At Thomson & Bancks, our medical negligence specialists will deal sensitively and efficiently with your claim for compensation or that brought on behalf of a loved one’s Estate. The civil law attempts to place people back in the same place as they would have been had they not been injured by a medical mistake or left untreated so they have not fully recovered as they should have done.

Where that is not possible, an increasing amount of damages are payable for where the consequences have been more serious for you. Also, financial losses caused by the injury or non-recovery of your condition are claimable, for instance, if you are not able to return to work or require extra services because of a resulting disability which would have been avoided had there been no negligence.

If you or your family have been affected by medical negligence, please call our specialist Solicitor, Lucy Sherry, on 01242 235250 to find out if you may have a claim. We will offer you a first free interview to learn about the next steps and our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreements for funding your legal claim.
