Misdiagnosis Claim

What else you might like to know about Misdiagnosis Claim

If you believe you deserve compensation for a medical misdiagnosis, a legal service provider is well placed to begin legal proceedings on your behalf. Here is some basic advice and guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.

What is classed as misdiagnosis?

A misdiagnosis could happen when your condition is not spotted by a medical expert, such as your GP failing to diagnose an infection. A misdiagnosis could also take place if a medical expert makes the incorrect diagnosis such as telling you that you have a sprain when you actually have a fracture. It is important to take expert legal advice in these circumstances.

Who is liable for my misdiagnosis?

All medical staff have a duty of care to their patients to act with reasonable care. If you did not get the standard of care you would expect and this caused you to suffer further injury, you are entitled to bring a no win no fee claim for compensation.

How can I prove a misdiagnosis has occurred?

Your legal service provider will be able to fully advise you on the evidence required to prove that a misdiagnosis has occurred. Your medical records and a medical report from an independent expert are likely to be required.

How can I choose the best legal service provider?

It is worth considering a number of factors when choosing a legal expert to assist you with a misdiagnosis claim. A legal service provider should have all the necessary expertise in dealing with this type of claim. You may also wish to consider factors such as the location and rating of a firm before instructing them.

  • A very good site. It brought up several different quotes for my service which I was able to compare and I'm very satisfied with the provider I've chosen.

  • The site was well laid out and everything was easy to understand. Through The Law Superstore I found a great solicitor who has expert knowledge about the field I needed. I did look at other sites in my search for a solicitor, but The Law Superstore was the only site that didn't want payment upfront.
