Delays in Diagnosis & Medical Negligence

Delays in Diagnosis Clinical Negligence Claims

Supporting victims of Delays in Diagnosis to make Clinical Negligence claims nationwide, with particular focus across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire:

Despite the dedication and hard work of many medical professionals, mistakes are sometimes made, resulting in pain, heartache and frustration for patients and their families.

On the whole, the earlier the diagnosis of an illness is made, the greater the chance of a successful outcome. Unfortunately, some illnesses are missed or diagnosed late, when they should not have been.

There is delay in diagnosis of diseases and medical conditions for all kinds of reasons; carelessness, de-skilled, overworked or incompetent doctors, overstretched laboratory staff, or GPs who fail to recognise a particular problem perhaps (but not always) because they come across it so rarely. Sometimes the reverse happens and a diagnosis of disease is wrongly made. This can result in psychological harm as well as unnecessary and unpleasant treatment and/or surgery.

Cancer misdiagnosis is often widely reported in the press and in the past there have been some high profile cases where cervical cancer has been missed and breast cancer wrongly diagnosed. Many of these victims have quite rightly recovered considerable compensation.

The most common mistakes resulting in a delay in diagnosis of disease or medical condition are:

  • Failure to monitor a patient with a family history of the disease or condition
  • Failure to examine or listen to a patient properly or at all
  • Failure to investigate symptoms properly or at all
  • Not recognising signs and symptoms of a particular medical condition
  • Ignoring, losing or misinterpreting test results or other key information
  • Not referring to a specialist quickly enough
The legal investigation of medical treatment received can require involving experts in a number of different medical disciplines. We can arrange this on your behalf. This will then allow us to advise you on what should have happened and what difference proper treatment would have made.
