Compensation for failure to diagnose appendicitis

Appendicitis can often be one of the most difficult and often challenging medical conditions to identify as in most situations a person doesn’t even know they have it until they are in the very latter stages of the disease. In most situations, appendicitis can be easily treated with the removal of the appendix but in order for this to happen it needs to be identified in a quick and timely manner before the appendix bursts with the potential to damage surrounding organs and tissue.

If you have suffered from appendicitis but your doctor or medical professional has failed to identify this then you could have been left with substantial injuries and in a great deal of pain. If this is the case, then you may consider a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred.

IF I END UP WITH APPENDICITIS, WHO COULD I CONSIDER CLAIMING AGAINST?

In the case of undiagnosed appendicitis you may consider claiming against anyone whose negligence you feel has led to your injuries. In some cases this could include any medical professional who has dealt with you and failed to recognise your symptoms of appendicitis – even in a situation where you have been misdiagnosed. Medical professionals are highly trained and skilled in identifying potential illnesses and if you feel that their negligence has failed to appropriately diagnose yours then you may consider a claim.

WHAT ARE SOME POTENTIAL INJURIES I COULD BE LEFT WITH AFTER THIS NEGLIGENCE?

If your medical professional has failed to diagnose appendicitis then you may be left to deal with some of the more severe symptoms that you can receive and these include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Shaking
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation.
