Misdiagnosis claims. You should be able to put your faith in medical professionals without hesitation.

Most healthcare professionals are diligent and trustworthy individuals who prioritise the care of patients. However, occasionally, conditions or injuries can be misdiagnosed. When this happens, there can be lasting consequences on a person’s health.

In misdiagnosis claims, this responsibility of care is not always deliberately neglected by a medical professional. Sometimes, these claims arise because of a mistake or lack of professional judgement.

Whatever the reason for your incorrect diagnosis, if the blame was not your own, usually, it is possible to pursue a medical negligence claim.

Get in touch with the lawyers at First Personal Injury to discuss the circumstances of your misdiagnosis and to find out if we are able to help you claim compensation. Call us today on 0800 808 9740 or make a compensation claim online.

Common Kinds Of Late and Misdiagnosis Claims

A doctor may miss some details of a medical test you have had

  • A doctor may misinterpret results
  • Receiving a full treatment programme for an illness you do not actually have because you have been wrongly diagnosed
  • Some diseases cause other diseases. It is important that the underlying disease is treated and not the symptom that has been mistaken for a disease.
  • Incorrect prescribing of medication can cause problems and long-term use of some drugs can cause serious health problems.
Late or delayed diagnosis claims

Late or delayed diagnosis occurs when a condition is identified late by a medical professional, which can often cause delays in treatment. For example:

  • There could have been a delay in you receiving a referral to a specialist
  • A slow or late response to test results during an illness where time is of the essence to help secure a full recovery
