Delayed diagnosis compensation claims advice

doctor

We can represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis for a delayed diagnosis compensation claim.

With waiting lists for local GPs reportedly getting longer, and some patients having to wait more than 2-4 weeks to be seen, people may be at risk of developing complications and further suffering. Although we may book a routine appointment with the notion that the symptoms you have aren’t serious, that doesn’t mean that they won’t develop.

Another problem is the restrictions on appointment times as well. With some GPs forced to diagnose and treat in less than ten minutes, there’s an obvious risk of a misdiagnosis that then leads to a delayed diagnosis.

When can you claim for delayed diagnosis compensation?

You can be eligible to make a claim for delayed diagnosis compensation if you have suffered unnecessarily and / or suffered complications due to a delay.

Although not every instance of a delay can lead to a claim, we can assess the merits of a case based on your experiences. We can obtain medical evidence from an independent expert who can provide an advice as to whether the delay was unreasonable and could have been prevented.

Where it could have been prevented, that’s when you may have a successful claim. What we then need to look at is the impact, and if you have suffered more, that’s what you can claim for.

Patients can be entitled to make a claim for the pain, suffering, loss of amenity, and for any losses and expenses incurred as well.

Worries about cases increasing

We’re concerned that there may be more patients who need to make a claim for delayed diagnosis compensation as a result of issues with the NHS right now.

We’ve already covered some of the issues at the start of this article when it comes to short appointment times and longer waiting lists. The recent pensions tax issue has also led to some NHS staff working reduced hours and less overtime (understandably), and this is thought to have put a further strain on the NHS.

This is a central government issue where more funding needs to be put in place. But for the victims who suffer, they deserve their justice, and that why we can fight for people’s rights for a medical negligence compensation claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.
