MisdiagnosisFree advice for victims of misdiagnosis
Have you been misdiagnosed?
When we visit the doctor, naturally we put ourselves in their hands and assume they will correctly diagnose the problem we are experiencing, whatever that may be. We often don’t give the diagnosis a second thought; we take what the doctor says, and follow the recommended steps given to us. But what happens when the information provided by your doctor, or any other medical professional, is wrong? Who do you turn to for advice?
Types of misdiagnosis or undiagnosed conditions
At Clear Law we work with clients who’ve experienced misdiagnosis claims including cancer misdiagnosis, skin cancer misdiagnosis, brain tumor misdiagnosis, undiagnosed fractures and delayed treatment resulting from the misdiagnosis of a heart condition.
Can you make a claim for medical misdiagnosis?
If you or a loved one has experienced medical misdiagnosis and been through further injury, pain or suffering as a result, you are entitled to make a claim with us. Here at Clear Law, we are experts in medical negligence and have secured thousands of pounds for victims, including those of incorrect misdiagnosis.
To make a claim for medical negligence compensation we must be able to prove that any further pain and suffering was caused by your treatment or misdiagnosis. For example if you visit a hospital or A&E after a heavy fall and they diagnose you with a sprain, but in fact sometime after you found out that you’ve suffered from a fracture, after it was too late to operate effectively, then you may have a claim for clinical negligence compensation.
