Delay in Diagnosis

A large number of clinical negligence claims arise from the failure of medical professionals to diagnose medical conditions ranging from cancers and fractures to more specific conditions such as cauda equina syndrome or a failure to diagnose a post-operative injury or complication.  Such failures or delays can have a devastating impact on a patient and his/her family, particularly if it results in a loss of chance to initiate treatment.

The clinical negligence team in Worthingtons have acted in cases involving a delay in diagnosis of the following in recent years…

  • Cancer
  • Sarcoma
  • Cauda equina syndrome
  • Wrist fractures
  • Hip fractures
  • Intra-operative injuries during surgery
  • Retained placenta following childbirth

If you or a member of your family have experienced a delay in diagnosis of a medical condition and a subsequent delay in the treatment of that condition you may be able to claim compensation.  Worthingtons Solicitors have a dedicated team of Solicitors with extensive experience in handling medical negligence cases involving all aspects of medical care. If you believe that a hospital or doctor has delayed or failed to diagnose a medical condition, which has subsequently resulted in additional pain and suffering, we will gladly provide advice on all aspects of pursuing a medical negligence claim in Northern Ireland.
