Claim compensation for a diagnosis error

You could be entitled to claim compensation for a diagnosis error if you have suffered due to a mistake that is related to any diagnosis you have, or should have, received. If a correct diagnose should have been reasonably made but it wasn’t, that is when you could be eligible to receive compensation if the error has resulted in you suffering.

It could be the incorrect diagnosis or the lack of a diagnosis that could mean you do not receive the right treatment or advice. Treatment delays can cause serious problems and suffering, and this is what you could be eligible to claim for.

What could you claim for?

Compensation for a diagnosis error could include you receiving monetary damages for:

  • Pain and suffering;
  • Loss of amenity;
  • Lost earnings from time off work due to the suffering and recovery;
  • The costs of any medication or travel expenses that you need to pay for;
  • The cost for private treatment if this will help your recovery.

The idea is that you should receive compensation based on the severity of your suffering for the General Damages, which is for the pain and suffering. When it comes to the losses and expenses, known as Special Damages, this is designed to make sure that you do not lose out financially as a result of what has happened to you.

We will normally make use of specialist medical evidence from an independent consultant to prove whether you can be eligible to make a claim or not. The evidence can also be used by us to value the case for you as well.

No Win, No Fee eligibility

One of the first things we need to do is assess your eligibility to claim compensation for a diagnosis error. We will consider what has happened, what evidence we can obtain, and how this has affected you.

If we think that there is enough evidence for you to be able to succeed with a legal case, we can offer to represent you for a claim on a No Win, No Fee basis. The No Win, No Fee means that we can write off our legal fees if the claim does not succeed, subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement.
