Making a delayed or misdiagnosis claim

Suffering a delay in diagnosis or having your condition misdiagnosed by a GP or hospital staff can greatly impact the effectiveness of your treatment and have long-term implications for your health. Making a medical negligence claim for compensation can provide you and your family with the financial support and security you require. This is particularly important if your ability to work, either now or in the future, has been impacted or you are likely to require professional care, now or in the future.

To make a successful misdiagnosis claim or delayed diagnosis claim you will need to get specialist advice and guidance from an expert medical negligence solicitor experienced in successfully settling such claims. Blackwater Law has a team of such solicitors that act for clients across the country.
