Delay in diagnosis claims
There can be many reasons why a person might encounter a negligent delay in having a particular condition diagnosed and treated. The consequences can range from a prolonged period of pain and suffering, to paralysis, reduced life expectancy or even death.
We commonly deal with claims where there has been a negligent delay by a GP to refer for specialist tests or advice. Alternatively, delays might be encountered when a GP or even a specialist fails to interpret test results correctly.
We commonly deal with claims involving the delayed diagnosis and treatment of the following conditions:
- spinal injuries, including cauda equina syndrome
- bowel obstruction
- fractures or soft tissue injuries
If you feel that your condition may have deteriorated as a result of a delayed diagnosis, please do not hesitate to contact our team of experts.
