When you visit your doctor with an illness you expect them to tell you what is wrong and them to treat you with medication or refer you on for tests. Unfortunately with the pressures on doctors to see more patients and complete more paperwork things can be overlooked, missed or mistaken for something else.
Fortunately, most of the time misdiagnosis doesn’t happen, but if you have been to your doctor and they have misdiagnosed your condition you will be extremely upset and angry.
As most serious illnesses respond best to early treatment, your delayed diagnosis may have huge repercussions. We do understand how distressed you must be, but our team of misdiagnosis solicitors can help you to understand if you are able to make a misdiagnosis claim.
The symptoms of many serious illnesses start out as symptoms of less serious illnesses such as flu, or a common cold which is why often misdiagnosis happens.
Almost all illnesses will respond better to early treatment or early referral for tests to decide what treatment is required. If there is a delay in referral to a specialist or a delay in receiving treatment there is the potential that the outcome will not be as good.
Early diagnosis is especially important when you have been diagnosed with a condition that is terminal. You will want to spend as much time with your family or just enjoying your time as you choose so you may feel like this has been taken away from you, and that you have less time to do what you need to.
