Misdiagnosis Compensation Claims

Being misdiagnosed by a medical professional can have a devastating effect on your life, and the specialist lawyers here at Spencers Solicitors want you help.

The two major categories of misdiagnosis claims are:

  • Incorrect Illness
  • Where you have been diagnosed with the incorrect illness, such as a heart condition instead of a respiratory condition.

  • Undiagnosed Illness
  • Where you have been undiagnosed for a period of time, despite visiting your GP or hospital on many occasions.

If you have suffered a misdiagnosis from your doctor, consultant or hospital, you may be entitled to make a medical negligence compensation claim.

for no obligation advice on making a claim.

Medical Misdiagnosis Claims

A medical misdiagnosis could, for example, mean your condition degenerated further causing lasting damage, or you suffered far longer from your symptoms than was necessary.

The law aims to protect patients and ensure they obtain a high standard of medical care. If the court deems the treatment you received was negligent you could be entitled to compensation in the form of a financial settlement.

Various physical and mental injuries can stem from a misdiagnosis, which can be caused by:

  • Significant delay in the diagnosis of an illness
  • Incorrect diagnosis of an illness or condition
  • Misdiagnosis causing a delay in the required treatment
  • Unnecessary use of drugs, treatment or a surgical procedure
