Compensation for a mis-diagnosis
When you make a visit to your GP or doctor, one of the most common things that you are looking for is a diagnosis on any injury that you might happen to have. Although in most cases they are able to quickly and easily diagnose any problems that you have, this might not always be the case and if you are incorrectly diagnosed with an illness then you could find that you actually end up much worse off.
Although GPs are incredibly highly skilled, they do still make mistakes from time to time, but if their mistake has led to you sustaining an injury you could look to make a claim for compensation to cover any costs that you have incurred.
IF I SUFFER FROM A MIS-DIAGNOSIS WHO COULD I CLAIM AGAINST?
If you feel that you have been the victim of a mis-diagnosis there are a number of people who you could consider claiming against, but your GP is perhaps the first person who you will look to lodge a claim against. It is the responsibility of your GP to ensure that you receive the best possible medical treatment available and if you feel that they have been negligent towards you, and that you have been left with injuries as a result, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred.
WHAT INJURIES COULD I SUSTAIN FROM A MIS-DIAGNOSIS
If you feel that you have been the victim of a mis-diagnosis, there are a number of different situations where you could consider making a claim, these include:
- Claims for failure to diagnose a serious illness
- Claims for diagnosing the wrong illness
