For many illnesses and conditions, early diagnosis is essential to boost your chances of a full and fast recovery. When the medical professionals involved in your care fail to diagnose you or a loved one when they should have, you may be able to claim delayed diagnosis compensation for any harm to your health or quality of life.
Our team of medical negligence solicitors are specialists in delayed diagnosis compensation claims. We are ranked highly by the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners – the two leading clients guides in the county – for our skills and expertise in this area.
We offer a free first consultation to new clients looking to start a delay in diagnosis claim and accept the majority of our clients on a no win, no fee basis. So get in touch by giving us a call, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or filling in our online contact form to request a call back.
How our delayed diagnosis solicitors can help you
Medical professionals are human, and sometimes mistakes happen. However, if failures have occurred during the diagnostic process causing you or a family member unnecessary harm, you could be entitled to make a delayed diagnosis compensation claim.
As clinical negligence experts, we support individuals affected by medical errors day in day out. We understand the trauma and distress that falling victim to negligence can cause. In particular, we know how frustrating it is to be denied a diagnosis, sometimes for many years, when you know something is wrong.
We regularly achieve substantial delayed diagnosis compensation for clients that covers physical and psychological pain and suffering as well as financial losses and damage to quality of life.
Our expertise includes (but is not limited to) claiming delayed diagnosis compensation for:
- Eye problems
- Testicular torsion
- Brain tumour
Medical diagnosis failures we deal with include:
- Failing to diagnose over a long period of time (such as repeated GP visits)
- Delayed diagnosis in Accident & Emergency where diagnosis and treatment is often time critical
- Failing to read an X-Ray or failing to spot an issue such as a fracture
- Failing to refer to a consultant for diagnosis and treatment
- Failing to prescribe medication at an appropriate time
Our no win no fee delayed diagnosis compensation claims service
We are happy to offer the majority of our clients no win, no fee agreements (also called conditional fee agreements), so money need never be a barrier to getting the compensation you deserve for delayed diagnosis claims.
At your initial consultation with us, we will discuss your claim’s prospects for success, your eligibility for our conditional fee agreement, and the terms of our agreement so you can make an informed decision about whether to start your delayed diagnosis compensation claim with us.
How do no win no fee compensation claims work?
With a no win, no fee agreement, you won’t have to pay any solicitor fees upfront to start your delayed diagnosis claim. Instead, you will only need to contribute towards these fees at the end of the case if your late diagnosis claim is successful.
There may be other costs that arise throughout your case, such as the costs of third party experts. However, when making a delayed diagnosis claim with our team, we will talk you through these costs before they are incurred, so there are no surprises along the way. Furthermore, we can take out a policy of insurance on your behalf, so you do not have to pay for expert reports, court fees and other third party expenses.
