Many of the medical negligence claims our team handle are claims for delayed diagnosis of injuries or illnesses. Often, this delay only leads to the condition or injury worsening, having a greater impact on the patient’s lifestyle and health.

Unfortunately, most misdiagnoses are the result of a human error, this could occur at any stage of the medical diagnosis process. They’re often only spotted once the condition has advanced or the injury worsened, often causing serious health issues.

Common types of delayed diagnosis

Nearly all conditions can be missed all together or misdiagnosed, but some of the common claims we handle include:

  • A delay in diagnosis and treatment of cancer
  • A delay in diagnosis and treatment of infections
  • A delay in diagnosis and treatment of fractures
  • A delay in diagnosis and treatment of appendicitis
  • A delay in diagnosis and treatment of gallstones

Regardless of whether you was seen by a medical professional in a hospital A&E department or by a GP at your doctors surgery, if your condition or illness were not spotted you could be entitled to compensation.
