When someone explains to a medical professional what is wrong they expect a diagnosis and treatment or investigations in order to get a diagnosis. However, unfortunately, mistakes can happen and if those are mistakes no other medical professional would have ordinarily made then the mistake may be a failure that can be pursued a claim.

If there is a missed or a delayed diagnosis, professional and knowledgeable legal advice is really important in order to establish what a failure has caused that would not otherwise have occurred and what compensation someone is entitled to as a consequence of that failure.

We will analyse in great detail each of the hurdles that need to be overcome in order to succeed with a claim and explain to you at every stage what the legal tests are and how they apply to your specific claim.

Examples of such claims include:

  • Cancer
  • Cauda Equina
  • Unnecessary medical or surgical treatment
  • Eye/visual problems
  • Checks performed during pregnancy
  • New-born baby checks
  • IBS/IBD/Crohns
