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.
