Failure to Diagnose

The failure by GPs and hospital doctors to make a correct diagnosis at the appropriate time represents one of the most common areas of medical negligence claims.

Clinical negligence in this circumstance might refer to a failure to diagnose serious illnesses such as cancer, appendicitis and kidney failure, or a fracture. Whatever the scenario, the impact of this failure to diagnose is often devastating and sometimes fatal for the patient concerned.

Our Medical Negligence team is used to handling medical negligence claims of this nature.

We will listen to what you or a loved one has been through and the impact a failure to diagnose has had on your lives.

If we think that you have a medical negligence claim we will discuss your options with you and take you through the next steps.

We will discuss all of the following with you:

  • How to move your claim forward.
  • How your claim will be funded.
  • How long the claim might take from start to finish.

It costs nothing to obtain some initial advice from us so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
