We place our trust in medical professionals to make the right decisions when it comes to our health, in a timely and accurate manner. But medical misdiagnosis can happen, with often tragic and life changing consequences. Medical negligence misdiagnosis is usually either when a condition is completely missed and not diagnosed at all, or when someone is given the wrong diagnosis, resulting in delayed treatment.
Our medical negligence solicitors will work hard to uncover the truth about precisely what went wrong and who was responsible in order to achieve a successful outcome that will compensate you and your loved ones for the damage, suffering and pain caused by a misdiagnosis. However, we understand that claiming for medical misdiagnosis is more than just compensation, so we’ll demand the answers, the explanation and the apology that you deserve.

There are a number of reasons why medical misdiagnosis might occur, vagueness of symptoms being the most common. Misdiagnoses may also occur because of an error by medical staff. This could be because they are too busy, because there is a lack of knowledge and experience available or simply because a healthcare professional made a mistake.
If you’ve been affected by any of these medical misdiagnoses, it can be difficult to know who to turn to. You might be confused, angry and unsure who is to blame. Our specialist medical negligence solicitors will help you every step of the way because we understand how upsetting being let down by a trusted medical professional can be, and we will work hard to uncover the truth and gain answers.
Our aim is to ensure you receive the compensation and closure you need to get your life back on track after the unfortunate complications arising from a misdiagnosis.
The service was great, everything was done that could have been under the circumstances. You have great staff with very good listening skills, thank you so much.
