Can you claim if an infection was not diagnosed?

If an infection was not diagnosed and this caused problems and occurred due to some form of problem or error, you could be entitled to pursue a medical negligence case for compensation.

We will talk a little more about below about how a case works, but some examples of when you could be eligible to claim could include:

  • Seeking medical help for problems where an infection was presented and was not diagnosed.
  • The signs of the infection being incorrectly diagnosed as something else, leading to the incorrect (or no) treatment.
  • Missed signs of an infection during investigation and treatment that should have been identified.

These are just three examples, but there could be many ways in which you may be harmed and could be entitled to claim for problems of a medical nature.

Ultimately, you do not have to simply accept that an infection was not diagnosed and that the acceptance is the end of the matter. The law is on your side, and you may be eligible to receive compensation for what you have had to go through.

How does a medical negligence claim for compensation work?

There are usually two key components to being able to succeed with a claim for medical negligence. The first is that something has happened as a result of negligence, and not from something like an inherent risk or just an unfortunate event. Someone in the process of what has happened to you must be responsible for an error or an oversight so that we can establish that negligence has occurred. The second element to the case is then showing that the negligence has caused you harm or suffering. This is typically known as “medical causation”.

One of the important things that we need to do is prove that negligence has taken place and then prove that this has caused the suffering you want to claim for. We usually investigate this by instructing an independent expert who can produce a “medico-legal” report and can provide an opinion on both the negligence and any suffering endured. We can then also use that report to help us to value your case if we are able to reach the settlement stage as well.

It is not always easy to know right from the start if you are eligible to pursue a legal case, but we can risk assess your potential claim for free here now. If we believe that there are prospects of success, that is when we may then be able to move forward with a case for compensation for you.
