Compensation for failure to diagnose a stroke

One of the most debilitating and potentially dangerous types of injury that a person can sustain is a stroke. In general strokes differ greatly in the impact that they can have on your life and this ranges from a very small or mild stroke which often goes unnoticed, right through to a very serious stroke which can leave you partially paralysed or even lead to death.

Regardless of the type of stroke that you have had, if you are starting to suffer the symptoms of a stroke you will usually visit your GP or doctor who will hopefully work to diagnose it quite quickly. If your GP or doctor fails to do this then the symptoms of your stroke could go untreated and this could lead to far more serious injuries developing down the line. In this situation, you may consider a claim for compensation to cover your costs.

WHO COULD I CLAIM AGAINST FOR A STROKE WHICH HASN’T BEEN DIAGNOSED?

If you are suffering from a stroke which hasn’t been diagnosed then you could be left with serious injuries and in a very risky situation – you may be looking to make a claim against the person who hasn’t diagnosed you and usually this will be your GP or doctor. Depending on the circumstances, if you feel that they have been negligent towards you and not diagnosed you in the way that they should have, you may consider a compensation claim.

ARE THERE HEALTH PROBLEMS I COULD SUFFER FROM AS A RESULT?

If you have been the victim of a situation where a stroke has not been appropriately diagnosed, then you could be suffering from a number of potential injuries including:

  • Complete paralysis of one side of the body
  • Potential loss of vision
  • Difficulty talking and understanding people
  • Headache and neck stiffness
  • Balance and coordination issues.
