Got a question about delayed diagnosis?

What types of delayed diagnosis can you claim compensation for?

Delayed diagnosis is a form of clinical negligence. It is not supposed to happen, and it is your right to be compensated for the ramifications of your condition being diagnosed later than it should have been. Anytime a delayed diagnosis has cost you pain, suffering, money and time, you can claim for compensation.

How much compensation can you claim for a delayed diagnosis?

You should always be able to win compensation for your direct costs associated with a delayed diagnosis, including medical expenses, travel expenses and time off work.

You can also be compensated for so-called pain and suffering caused by the delayed diagnosis. The amount of compensation you can claim for this depends greatly on the particular disease that was diagnosed too late.

As a common sense matter, the pain and suffering of delayed diagnosis of a potentially life-threatening disease such as cancer is much greater than that arising from the delayed diagnosis of a normally non-life-threatening condition such as, say, psoriasis or gastroesophageal reflux disease. You will be able to claim more compensation for pain and suffering due to the delayed diagnosis of a severe, life-threatening condition, an amount that can reach tens of thousands of pounds.

What are the symptoms for delayed diagnosis and how can I get diagnosed?

Establishing the fact of a delayed diagnosis can be tricky. Many delayed diagnoses are never detected, for the obvious reason that our physician’s advice is generally trusted. But in those cases where it is possible to get a second opinion, or to get the initial examining physician to revisit your symptoms, you may be able to establish that your condition could have and should have been diagnosed sooner, that you have suffered from that delay, and that you are entitled to compensation for the costs and pain and suffering arising from that delayed diagnosis.

What is a delayed diagnosis ‘No Win, No Fee’ claims solicitor?

Many personal injury solicitors operate with a ‘no win, no fee’ business model. They will handle your delayed diagnosis compensation claim if they believe they can win, and they will only be owed a fee if they do win.

Where can I find out more information about delayed diagnosis?

Almost every personal injury law firm in the UK that handles medical negligence claims has an extensive website with a great deal of information about clinical/medical negligence, delayed diagnosis and compensation claims for this cause of action. These websites would be the best place to look for more information from the standpoint of a patient who has suffered a delayed diagnosis.

How do I make a delayed diagnosis compensation claim?

Medical malpractice solicitors are specialised in all legal aspects of compensation claims for medical negligence and other forms of malpractice, including delayed diagnosis. If you don’t already have a family solicitor, there are large medical malpractice law firms such as Tylers Solicitors that have a substantial online presence. In many cases, you can start your delayed diagnosis compensation claim online, right on the law firm’s website.

How long until I can claim for delayed diagnosis?

You can pursue a compensation claim for delayed diagnosis as soon as you have a medical diagnosis that could have and should have been made sooner. Obviously you will not win the claim if it is not found that your medical providers were negligent, however. Generally speaking, you should start your compensation claim as soon as you have the diagnosis, and you should consult with a second physician as soon as you feel that an important diagnosis was previously missed.
