There are many forms of misdiagnosis claims that arise out of medical negligence, however these fall under two categories. The first is where a condition or an injury is not diagnosed at all, an example of this is where a patient attends his/ her GP with bowel problems for a number of year and is diagnosed with IBS, however over a period of time is then correctly diagnosed with bowel cancer. The second category relates to an incorrect diagnosis. One of the main examples here is where a patient suffers a fall and is diagnosed with a sprain instead of a fracture.
Here at Clear Law we take on a range of misdiagnosis claims. The main types of cases we deal with but are not restricted to are:
- Misdiagnosis of cancer; including bowel, colon, breast, and skin carcinoma.
- Misdiagnosed or undiagnosed fractures.
- Undiagnosed Stroke
- Undiagnosed Appendicitis
- Any other condition missed or undiagnosed
In order to succeed in a claim for misdiagnosed or undiagnosed claim the Claimant must be able to prove that the delay has caused further injury, pain or suffering. We at Clear Law Solicitors will be able to identify this test for you in order to consider whether you are entitled to make a claim.
