Medical Negligence

Misdiagnosis Claims

Misdiagnosis is one of the most serious types of clinical negligence which the solicitors here at Your Personal Injury Partner deal with. Misdiagnosis can have severe consequences – patients can be diagnosed with the wrong illness and subsequently administered with the incorrect medication, or a serious condition can be completely missed, leading to ill health or even death.

If a medical professional has failed to properly diagnose your condition and you’ve suffered ill health as a result, or an illness was completely missed despite attending medical appointments, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

To find out more about your chances of making a successful claim call us now on 01782 608 744 or fill in our contact form and someone will be in touch with you soon.

Misdiagnosis examples

There is a risk of any condition being missed or misdiagnosed and here at Your Personal Injury Partner we have experience in dealing with a wide variety of claims including:

  • Missed fractures and breaks
  • Misdiagnosis leading to unnecessary surgery
  • Healthy organ removal
  • Missed tumours/cancers
  • Missed infections leading to further illness

In some cases a diagnosis may not have any lasting effects on a patient, as it is quickly realised and righted, however in some cases a misdiagnosis can lead to serious injury or even a fatality. For instance, a missed infection in the spine could lead to paralysis, or a missed head injury could result in a fatal brain bleed.
