Compensation for a missed diagnosis
Regardless of the type of injury or illness that you have, when you visit your local GP or doctor you generally do it with the hope that they will be able to quickly and easily diagnose any problem that you have and put you straight back on the path to recovery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and sometimes you will be given a wrong diagnosis, or not even a diagnosis at all, and in this situation you could be left suffering from a substantial injury.
If you have been the victim of a missed diagnosis through the direct negligence of your GP, you could look to make a compensation claim to recoup any financial damages that you have sustained as a result.
