“Excellent service nothing was a problem everything explained to enable us to fully understand the process.”

Generally, medical professionals provide excellent care but unfortunately this is not always the case and there can be unnecessary delays in diagnosis and treatment leading to a breach of duty of care which often leads to a worsening medical condition. If you can show that a medical professional has delayed in giving a diagnosis and that the delay has caused your condition to get worse, you may be entitled to compensation.

We have extensive experience of representing clients who have suffered from delays in medical diagnosis. We understand the distress that these delays cause and will help our clients through the complexities of the claims process with care and understanding to achieve the best results for them. We will obtain expert medical evidence as is required in all cases and our team of medical professionals will assess the care received as well as the care required. We can offer a CFA (“no win no fee”) for suitable cases.

Typical delayed diagnosis cases can include:

- Failing to note symptoms and diagnose a condition
- Failing to respond to test results
- Failing to refer to an appropriate specialist
- Failing to admit patients to hospital
- Failing to provide an appointment (“lost in the system” or “lost to follow up”)
- Delayed cancer diagnosis and treatment
- Delayed cardiology condition and treatment
- Delayed stroke diagnosis and treatment
