Delays in correctly diagnosing and treating your medical conditions are stressful and frustrating. However with time sensitive medical conditions such as cancer, by the time a condition is correctly diagnosed and treated, tragically it can sometimes be too late.
If your medical condition has not been diagnosed and treated in a timely manner, for example if it was not picked up by your General Practitioner or referred to a specialist appropriately, you may have a claim for medical negligence. These claims are complex because it is necessary to prove what damage you have suffered from the delayed treatment rather than your underlying medical condition. This is why it is important to seek expert legal advice.
