When you’re unwell, you place all your trust into the hands of the medical professionals to help you get better, and rightly so.
However, there’re times when you might doubt the diagnosis you’ve been given and when you’ve been given it. Medical misdiagnosis does happen and the consequences can be life-changing.
You may have suffered negligence if:
- Test results were not read correctly and you were subsequently incorrectly diagnosed
- The medical practitioner failed to examine you properly
- You were not referred to a specialist in a timely manner
- The time to diagnose you was unnecessarily delayed
There are many types of misdiagnosis, below are a few common areas:
At Negligence Claimline we will put you in touch with our expert panel solicitors who will be able to help you get the answers you deserve, and making sure the same mistakes don’t happen again.
How can we help?
Here at Negligence Claimline our friendly team are here to help you get the support you need. Working with a panel of specialist medical negligence solicitors, we can assist you with your potential claim.
Sometimes an apology is enough, but in other cases compensation will be the only solution to help you get your life back on track.
Our service, putting you in contact with one of our expert panel members, is free and you are not obliged to take the advice the solicitor gives you, or to progress your claim any further if you do not wish.
Can I sue the NHS?
The NHS was created so that good healthcare should be available to all, and it is one of the country’s proudest achievements. However, if something goes wrong during your treatment you deserve answers and, where necessary, financial compensation.
We do not treat your claim lightly. The treatment you consider negligent must be considered unreasonable, irresponsible, and harmful.
However, when someone suffers an injury that impacts their live, or that of a loved one, then it is vital that the NHS has the procedures in place to both compensate the patient and learn from their mistakes.
