Causes of medical negligence

Medical negligence is a broad term relating to an act or omission by a medical practitioner which causes pain or injury to the patient. This could include:

No matter what your circumstances if our medical negligence lawyers believe you have a strong claim, we will offer to pursue it on your behalf – whether against a private hospital or the NHS.

Delayed diagnosis negligence

One of the most common forms of medical negligence is delayed diagnosis. Delayed diagnosis can occur when a condition is missed or misdiagnosed, especially when symptoms are difficult to recognise. However, delayed diagnosis can also occur as a result of medical negligence due to:

  • Insufficient investigation
  • Failure to run standard tests
  • Not following up abnormal results

The consequences of a delayed diagnosis can be extremely serious. It can prevent you from getting the right kind of treatment and seriously reduce your chances of recovery.

If you believe that your condition should have been diagnosed more quickly than it was, or if your condition was initially misdiagnosed, it’s worth speaking to a member of our medical negligence team. They will be able to advise you on whether you have grounds to claim compensation.

How to make a medical negligence claim

If you have been affected by any form of medical negligence, from a delay in diagnosis to missed broken bones, then you may have a claim for compensation.
