What is a delay in treatment?
Most of the time, medical professionals successfully diagnose people’s symptoms and refer them for more tests or provide them with the necessary treatment as soon as possible.
If you have been to visit a medical professional and they have failed to do any of the following or similar, we can help you:
- Notice a fracture upon first examination
- Notice a suspected cancerous lump
- Prescribed medication to you at the appropriate stage of your illness
- Performed an operation when necessary
Failing to do any of the above might have made you more ill or elongated your illness unnecessarily. For example, if your doctor fails to prescribe you antibiotics for a minor infection early enough in your illness, it could lead to the infection spreading and becoming much more serious.
If a medical professional fails to act on your symptoms, resulting in a delay in treatment occurring, they are breaching their duty of care. Even if it was a mistake, you deserve to receive compensation for your suffering and losses.
What causes delay in treatment?
Many healthcare teams are understaffed and overworked which can lead to mistakes being made. Sometimes these mistakes are minor and can be resolved easily, but other times they cause severe health complications.
If your health has suffered because of a medical professional’s mistake, we understand that you might feel wary about filing a claim. However, we also understand the negative impact your suffering will have or has already had on your life, which is why we believe you deserve to be compensated.
Our team can help you get your life heading in the right direction again by helping you claim.

Most medical professionals will treat you as soon as possible, but sometimes mistakes do happen. Whatever the reason behind it, if you’ve suffered because of a delay in treatment then you deserve to be compensated so that you can focus on the future.
