Misdiagnosis of an illness or injury

 

We regulary act for people who have experienced misdiagnosis of injuries or illnesses at hospitals or through GP's.

 

One client attended her local hospital after suffering an injury to her shoulder.  She was advised that her shoulder was dislocated and provided with a sling. The pain did not subside and her symptoms worsened. Within a few months she decided to get a second opinion. Further x-rays revealed a fracture to her shoulder that required surgery.  We pursued a claim, the hospital admitted liability for the misdiagnosis and we negotiated a substantial settlement.

 

Our Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Team members have many years of experience dealing with misdiagnosis of illness or injury claims.  If you would like to make a claim, contact us today for a free telephone consultation.
