We rely on the advice of medical professionals and expect to be properly diagnosed. This is not an unreasonable expectation and if a medical professional has failed to diagnose, has unacceptably delayed a diagnosis or has given an incorrect diagnosis then you may have a claim for compensation.
- At P.A. Duffy and Company we appreciate that the damage caused by a missed diagnosis can be irrevocable. Our medical negligence solicitors can offer compassionate legal advice and will establish whether or not a medical professional has been negligent in failing to diagnose a particular illness.
- If you have been unfortunate enough to have received an incorrect diagnosis, whether a medical professional is partially or wholly responsible we will be able to help you proceed with a claim for compensation.
- Most illnesses tend to worsen if an early diagnosis does not identify the problem. For example, illnesses such as cancer or diabetes must be diagnosed as early as possible to ensure you receive the most effective treatment possible. What constitutes an unacceptable delay will be determined by a variety of complex medico-legal factors, our team of specialist solicitors will take you through the process and help you to make a claim for compensation.
