Have you or a family member suffered as a result of an undiagnosed health condition or been given an incorrect diagnosis? If so, you could be entitled to compensation.
SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
Sadly medical advisers can make mistakes, and unfortunately these mistakes can have devastating effects on people's lives, sometimes even fatal consequences.
Medical misdiagnosis falls under clinical negligence and can involve a wide variety of circumstances, yet often they are split into two categories.
The first category is where a condition or illness is completely missed or undiagnosed by your medical advisor. For example, you may have visited your GP over a number of years with a variety of health problems and your doctor has failed to notice and diagnose your illness.
The second category is when your GP makes an incorrect diagnosis, an example being you have fractured your leg and your GP or medical advisor diagnoses the injury as a sprain. In extreme cases this can also involve someone being told they have a tumour when in truth they do not have one.
Some examples of medical misdiagnosis claims Forbes Solicitors are experienced in are:
Misdiagnosis can also involve the prescription of incorrect drugs or treatments that can potentially have harmful effects on an individual.
Aside from the physical implications of medical misdiagnosis, you may have suffered extreme psychological trauma if you were incorrectly told you have an illness, as coming to terms with a life threatening illness is extremely stressful and traumatic.
If you have been misdiagnosed and told you have a life threatening illness when in fact you do not, this can be terribly upsetting.
If you have suffered physical or emotional harm due to medical misdiagnosis Forbes Solicitors can help you obtain compensation for any injuries or psychological damages.
