We may be able to represent you for a stroke misdiagnosis compensation claim if you’ve suffered complications as a result of not being correctly diagnosed.
Diagnosing a stroke quickly is important, and it can be a matter of life and death. It can also be the difference between a good recovery or being left with permanent and severe complications. For those reasons, it’s important that any genuine victim of medical negligence that stems from a misdiagnosis is able to make a claim.
We can offer No Win, No Fee representation for this type of case, and there’s so much we can do to help you through the process of fighting for your rights to justice.
Can you claim stroke misdiagnosis compensation?
You may be able to make a claim for stroke misdiagnosis compensation if you’ve suffered injury, loss, and / or further complications from not being correctly (or quickly) diagnosed.
What we need to do is determine whether a quicker and / or more accurate diagnosis could – and should – have been made. We usually instruct our own independent medical expert who can see you for an appointment and assess your medical records to help us determine if you’ve been the victim of negligence.
If the report supports that your treatment and care fell short of what should have been expected, you could be entitled to claim damages.
What can you claim for?
Pay-outs for a stroke misdiagnosis compensation claim can be significant. You may be left partially paralysed, which will no doubt reduce your quality of life, and may jeopardise your career and ability to enjoy your life and hobbies.
This is all considered.
You can claim for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused, which is known as General Damages. You can also claim Special Damages for any losses and expenses which could be substantial if you’re left unable to walk or work ever again.
You may need to claim for round-the-clock care and lost earnings until retirement. Ultimately, if the signs of a stroke were missed and this has left you disabled, you should be entitled to make a claim.
