Compensation claims for a failure to diagnose depression

Depression can be devastating for anyone who has to endure it, as it can cause you to have complications in your everyday life, whether it’s to do with your relationship, family or even your career. Some of the most common signs of depression include tiredness, loss of appetite, a feeling of hopelessness and in the majority of cases, alcoholism, meaning that it can have a serious effect on your ability to lead a normal life. Fortunately, there are ways it can be treated and even diagnosed before you feel the full weight of it, thanks to the work of medical professionals and psychologists who have dedicated years of their lives to help treat the illness. Sometimes though, mistakes can happen and your signs may not be correctly diagnosed as depression, which could eventually lead you to suffer more than you should have to. If you believe you have suffered as a result of this, then you could be entitled to make a claim to help you with any losses and health issues you have developed?

Who could have been responsible for misdiagnosing depression?

In general, if you believe that your depression has not been correctly diagnosed then you would make a claim against the psychologist or any other medical professional who had direct involvement in the process. Depression is a very sensitive issue, so it is important that your psychologist is highly-trained so they can locate the signs of depression at an early stage, otherwise your mental state could decline and leave you with a lot of traumatic issues. If you believe that anyone has not performed to the best of their abilities your health has been put at risk then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim to help you recuperate any losses you have sustained.

In which situations might you be able to claim?

A number of problems can potentially occur as the result of the failure to diagnose depression, with some common examples including:

·         Claims for failure to diagnose depression
