Compensation claims for failure to diagnose a terminal illness

Receiving the news that you have an illness that is terminal is among one of the most devastating things you could hear in your life – the repercussions can be very severe on your life, leaving you with a lot of pain and trauma. If however, your fatality was not diagnosed correctly by a medical professional then the trauma can become a lot more severe when you eventually find out and as a result you could be eligible to make a claim.

In some situations due to the negligence of a doctor or GP, cancer may not be diagnosed or it may be confused for another illness, as a result the cancer may be able to spread and eventually become terminal.
