Delay in Diagnosis Compensation

Delay in Diagnosis Compensation

Delays in diagnosis can have serious consequences, particularly if a fast acting condition such as meningitis is involved.

The earlier your diagnosis, the more chance you will have of successful treatment.

Delays in diagnosis often relate to treatment for cancer but they can cover a wide range of clinical negligence cases involving a number of different medical conditions. The following would amount to a delay in diagnosis:

  • delay in receiving treatment
  • an incorrect diagnosis
  • failure to follow up on test results
  • failure to refer to specialist

If you are concerned about the treatment you, a family member or a friend has received and about a possible delay in diagnosis then our team of specialist medical negligence solicitors can help. We will investigate your medical condition and whether earlier action should have been taken. If you have suffered a serious injury then you will probably be worrying about what the future holds. You may even had lost your job and no longer be able to work.

If we can prove that action should have been taken sooner and that this would have produced a better outcome then we will work to recover the compensation you (and perhaps your family) need.
