Delayed diagnosis claims
Delayed diagnosis claims are often linked to cases of misdiagnosis, but a delayed diagnosis, can also be the foundation of a medical negligence claim in its own right.
We are experienced in making delayed diagnosis claims and can work on a no win, no fee basis.
Delayed diagnosis claims can be made against a full range of healthcare organisations. So, in addition to claims involving delayed diagnosis by doctors and nurses in a hospital or GP setting, claims can also be made against dentists, opticians, pharmacists and therapists. Furthermore, we can deal with claims against both private healthcare providers as well as the NHS.
If an unreasonable, unjustifiable delay occurs in actually making or communicating a diagnosis or providing medical treatment, and if because of that delayed diagnosis your chances of recovery are hindered or you suffer illness or injury that could otherwise have been avoided, then you may be entitled to make a delayed diagnosis claim for medical negligence compensation. To find out where you stand just call our free legal helpline.
You can read a real life case study here about a woman who with the help of our specialist lawyers recovered compensation in excess of £400,000 for her delayed diagnosis claim. And you can read another case study here of a man who received £50,000 compensation for his doctor's failure to diagnose diabetes.
