Have you suffered from medical negligence?

We at Accident Advice Helpline deal with cases of medical negligence to ensure that you receive adequate compensation should your doctor misdiagnose an illness. Misdiagnosis may involve a minor complaint such as misdiagnosis of a sprain or injury or it could involve something much more serious, like failure to detect cancer. So how can you be sure that you are a victim of medical negligence?

Misdiagnosis and medical negligence

There are two types of doctor misdiagnosis. The first type occurs when your doctor conducts an examination and diagnosis is made incorrectly. This can result in quite a lot of suffering for the patient, particularly if the injury or illness is more serious than diagnosed. If you have been diagnosed with a sprained ankle which actually turns out to be a fracture, you may be in pain for a period of time and there may be irreparable damage. This is a minor case but more serious cases of misdiagnosis can occur, such as cancer which has been diagnosed as something minor. In this case, the damage could result in severe illness and could even lead to mortality in the patient so you can see just how serious misdiagnosis can be.

Failure to diagnose

The second type of misdiagnosis occurs when your doctor completely fails to diagnose your ailment or injury. This is very serious medical negligence on the part of your doctor and can result in weeks or even years of suffering for the individual with the undiagnosed illness. Of course, if a second doctor can diagnose your illness then you have a witness to back up your case and you can give us a call for free to discuss pursuing compensation. If you have been misdiagnosed in any way, use our 30-second compensation calculator to determine how much compensation your doctor may be liable to pay you for your suffering.

If you are still unsure, our highly trained team of lawyers will be able to help you determine whether you can make a claim for personal injury compensation under medical negligence. As long as your illness or injury has occurred within the last three years, we can process your claim. Many claims never need to go to court therefore it may be resolved strictly over the phone making it quick and easy to obtain compensation for your suffering. Bear in mind that you can claim compensation from any medical professional at fault including radiographers, nurses and dentists.
