Late or missed diagnosis?

Start your claim

Getting a late diagnosis can be an extremely traumatising and stressful experience for anyone. When visiting a medical professional, individuals rely on professional care and a correct diagnosis to ensure they receive the best possible care and treatment for their condition. If the medical professional fails to diagnose the condition on time or diagnoses incorrectly, and patients face damage to their health, they may be eligible to claim compensation. If you have suffered due to medical negligence, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Belmont Solicitors to get the compensation you deserve. 

Missed Diagnosis 

When visiting a medical professional with an issue, you are expected to receive the correct diagnosis and treatment to take care of the issue in the best possible way and on time. If the medical professional fails to diagnose your conditions, this may impact the treatment that you receive and cause it to drastically deteriorate. If a condition is left untreated, it can cause the condition to worsen. If the condition is misdiagnosed, it can lead to the patient receiving incorrect treatment, making the existing condition worsen. If you have experienced a missed diagnosis due to the negligence of the medical practitioner; we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Belmont Solicitors. 

Late Diagnosis 

If you have received a late diagnosis of your condition, it can lead to late treatment, which can cause the deterioration of your condition. Late diagnosis can be caused by a range of things such as: 

  • Delay in passing your details on to the designated professional. 
  • Issues with medical records or paperwork are usually associated with lost in the system claims. 
  • Failing to refer a patient to conduct the correct tests. 
  • Diagnosing the conditions incorrectly leads to a late diagnosis.

There are a range of different reasons why medical professionals fail to diagnose a condition, and if you have experienced damage to your health as a consequence of this, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Belmont Solicitors, to get the compensation you deserve. 

Most Commonly Misdiagnosed and Late Diagnosed conditions 

All medical conditions can be misdiagnosed or late-diagnosed, however, the most common conditions that face this type of negligence include: 

  • Cancer 
  • Diabetes
  • Meningitis 
  • Heart Disease 
  • Heart Attacks 
  • Internal trauma and internal bleeding 
  • Appendicitis 

If you have experienced negligence and therefore damages to your health, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced medical negligence solicitors now.

    • My accident happened right before covid, so there were loads of delays and even a hand over in solicitors. With all the interferences, Belmont never let me down. They stayed in touch and stayed very honest throughout the whole thing.

They have been excellent throughout making sure I am aware of everything that’s been going on and providing me with all the information I need to make informed decisions. The outcome has been fantastic and I have been treated with integrity and care throughout. I would highly recommend them to anybody.

    • The team at Belmont has been great. They went through the information with me as often as I needed to understand all the legal bits and feel comfortable proceeding. I was given an update as soon as it was available, which meant I didn’t have to constantly call - which in my experience is not always the case with solicitors. Overall very happy with the service received.

    • Good service. Kept me informed about my personal injury claim - which took about a year to settle, which was due to the other party in the accident's insurer going into liquidation, but they kept at it and eventually succeded in getting the payment. Would definately recommend.
