Delayed and Missed Diagnosis
We understand the devastating impact a delayed or missed diagnosis can have on you, your family and the subsequent treatment you require. Poor medical treatment can leave patients unable to perform day-to-day tasks or in some cases can sadly even be life threatening. Examples of delayed and missed diagnosis include cancer, head injuries, fractures, appendicitis and compartment syndrome.

Our clinical and medical negligence experts are highly experienced in investigating injuries that may have occurred in the management of pregnancy, labour, delivery and post-natal care.

If you have had surgery and something has gone wrong then our specialist medical negligence solicitors are here to help investigate what has happened and if it appears that your condition has been made worse because of negligent medical treatment, we are here to ensure that you are properly compensated and to maximise your recovery. We have experience across a wide range of cases concerning surgery performed to an unacceptable standard, resulting in nerve damage, amputations or other injury.
