Supportive Legal Guidance for Medical Misdiagnosis Claims

When we go to our doctor, local hospital or medical specialist, we expect top-quality care, and for our illness or injury to be diagnosed correctly. Unfortunately, sometimes people make mistakes, and medical professionals are no exception. After all, they’re human too.

If a medical professional diagnoses you with the wrong condition or misses obvious symptoms, delaying a diagnosis, then you have been a victim of medical misdiagnosis and we can help you claim compensation. If you’ve become more ill as a result of being misdiagnosed, then we can help you to heal and move forward with your life.

We have the expertise to help you claim for your suffering whilst also offering you support when you need it most. Our team can help you get compensated so that you can begin to build your life back up again.

If you have experienced misdiagnosis and it has had a negative effect on your health, get in touch with our medical negligence solicitors. Suffering for longer or becoming sicker because of an incorrect or delayed diagnosis isn’t something you just have to accept.

Our team can help you get compensated so that you can look forward to your future without worrying about financial issues, so you can focus on the healing process.

Common Cases of Misdiagnosis

Misdiagnosis covers a range of problems that can occur when you’re ill or injured. Some of the types of misdiagnosis we come across are:

  • Incorrect diagnosis of symptoms
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Wrong reading of medical history, reports or x-rays
  • Medical tests not being acted upon correctly
  • Failure to refer patients to specialists

We have seen a wide range of cases, from doctors missing a fractured wrist by assuming it was a sprain, to cases where a cancerous tumour was misdiagnosed as a cyst.

No matter what type of misdiagnosis you have suffered as a result of, we’ll support you and get you compensated. We understand that your misdiagnosis may have affected your whole life, which is why we’re here to help and support you through your compensation claim.

We can help you get your life back on track so you can look forward to your future.
