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.

In misdiagnosis claims, this responsibility of care is not always deliberately neglected; 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, in most cases, 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. 


Communication was open and I knew what was happening every step of the way.

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
  • Some people may be receiving a full treatment programme for an illness they do not actually have because they 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

Conditions that are commonly misdiagnosed include:

  • Cancer
  • Meningitis
  • Heart attack
  • Diabetes
  • Broken bones
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Epilepsy
  • Motor neurone disease
