Delayed Diagnosis and Misdiagnosis Claims

Early diagnosis is crucial for successful treatment of a wide range of illnesses and conditions. When medical professionals fail to diagnose a condition at an early stage, it can have serious consequences on a patient’s health and quality of life. Delayed diagnosis can result in prolonged pain and suffering, as well as the need for more extensive and costly treatment.  In some cases, a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can even be life-threatening.

At The Personal Injury People, we understand the importance of timely diagnosis in preventing further harm and suffering and the devastating impact or suffering a medical negligence injury can have on your life, affecting not just you but those of your family and loved ones.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take?

Every case is unique so it’s difficult to give a precise time frame as it depends on a number of factors. If liability is admitted during our investigation into the cause of your injury, the case will be settled significantly quicker than if it’s disputed. Another factor that can speed up a claim is if you return any documentation we send you as soon as possible and respond quickly to any questions we may have.

The extent of your injury also has a huge bearing on your case. Generally, the more serious the injury and the long-term implications of it, the longer it may take to fully calculate your claim’s value. We’re also bound by Civil Procedure rules, which allow the defendant’s solicitors time to investigate the circumstances around your injury before they have to respond to us.

What should I do if I want to make a claim?
Starting your claim is easy; just call us on the number above or fill out the contact form and we’ll call you back.
What's after the event insurance?

In certain circumstances we may recommend that you take out an insurance policy which is known as After the Event Insurance (ATE). After The Event Insurance is insurance which covers the legal costs and expenses involved in litigation.

The fees relating to After The Event insurance can vary and are deductible from the damages awarded should your claim be successful. Further information in respect of After The Event Insurance will be provided in our client care information.

What's a risk assessment?

Upon receipt of your instructions, in relation to your accident claim, we’ll advise what, if any, documentation/information is required from you to enable us to complete the risk assessment.

Assessing the risks involved in litigation is a key element of a Conditional Fee Agreement. It’s a crucial step when trying to determine the likelihood of success in any particular case and will involve consideration of all the available evidence. We’ll complete a risk assessment within two working days of receiving the required documentation/information and advise you of the outcome.

You won’t be charged for us to carry out a risk assessment, but if your claim is successful, we’ll look to recover the costs incurred on your behalf from the negligent third party.
