Compensation claims for misdiagnosis or prolonged diagnosis cases

Medical misdiagnosis is one type of clinical negligence. Misdiagnosis is diagnosing something incorrectly which has a life changing effect on you. This could be misdiagnosing cancer, epilepsy, IBS, a miscarriage, etc. It could also be diagnosing you with something you don’t actually have. Experiencing any of these negative effects may give rise to a misdiagnosis compensation claim.

A prolonged diagnosis can also cause serious harm. If delays by a healthcare professional have resulted in missing the opportunity for optimal treatment of your condition (or even the ability to treat it at all), you may be entitled to compensation. 

During these stressful times, you need someone to rely on for answers and support. We can help to figure out what went wrong and get compensation to help you with your future.

When diagnosis is prolonged, you may not get the treatment you need in time which could have serious consequences. If this has happened to you, we will do our best to make the situation better and bring you justice.
