Having dealt with many different types of claims and getting the deserved compensation for our clients, we can give you exactly the help you require.

What is Diabetes Misdiagnosis?

Diabetes misdiagnosis is when a medical practitioner diagnoses you with diabetes when you have another condition, or even are perfectly healthy. This can cause complications due to receiving incorrect treatment and ultimately waste both time and money.

As diabetes is a serious medical condition that involves drastic treatment and lifestyle changes, this can be a great inconvenience for the patient and is classed on medical malpractice on the part of the professional who made the diagnosis.

If a person is misdiagnosed with type one or two diabetes, they can seek compensation for any effects they may have experienced that have had a significant impact on their day-to-day life with the help of Forbes Solicitors.

Examples of Diabetes Misdiagnosis Negligence

There are a number of ways that a medical professional could be negligent by misdiagnosing a patient with diabetes, which then causes a number of after effects that then have to be dealt with. These include:

  • Providing the patient with the wrong treatment, which then means the actual condition is able to further advance and progress the patient's symptoms.
  • Offering a late diagnosis of diabetes which allows it to have severe effects upon the patient.
  • The patient may also experience complications as a result of receiving the wrong medication i.e., have a reaction to the insulin shots they do not need.
