Medical misdiagnoses are when doctors either fail to diagnose, or make an incorrect diagnoses. When you need to visit the hospital for medical treatment, you expect the doctor to do his or her job correctly. However, unfortunately, accidents do happen and there are many claims for medical misdiagnoses.
Personal injury can be complicated if you do not seek legal advice early on. Like all personal injury claims, there is a time limit of how long after you realized you had an injury that you are able to make a claim. Furthermore, not every misdiagnosis can be claimed for. If, for example, you are misdiagnosed and it does not cause any injury to you, then you will have no claim. This is why Bloomsbury Law is here to help you through these distressing times. We will listen to your situation and discuss your potential claim.
Some Common Misdiagnoses are:
- Breast Cancer;
- Bowel Cancer;
- Epilepsy; and
- Ectopic Pregnancy.
For those that have experienced an incorrect medical diagnoses or a failure to diagnose, they may experience some very serious and life changing consequences. This can often include loss of income and needing to rely on others to go about your day to day activities.
