Claiming Compensation for a Wrong Diagnosis

By: Andrew Bowen

Have you or your family ever in the past ever sustained a personal injury as a result of being wrongly diagnosed?

Medical misdiagnosis is a very serious threat to anyone who has ever been to a hospital or put their trust in a medical professional. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, and all other kinds of medical professionals have a standard quality of care. But, sometimes this standard is subverted and the patients suffer the consequences.

You may be entitled to claim compensation for your injury, whether it is physical, psychological or even minor.

You may recall visiting a doctor or a specialist, even undergone laboratory tests, where you were told that were suffering from an injury/disease, when in fact it was related to something completely different.

Some of the most frequently misdiagnosed diseases include:

Tuberculosis
Lung Cancer
Cervical Cancer
Breast Cancer
Strokes

This is by far not a comprehensive list, but it highlights where misdiagnosis can occur.

The effects of a medical misdiagnosis can, of course, be extreme, aversely affecting your work life / ability to earn income, social life and your ability to enjoy every day activities.

It may therefore be prudent to seek the advise of specialist solicitors who are experienced in such claims, who could advise on the merits of your particular claim on a true no win no fee basis.
