Compensation for misdiagnosis of tumours

If you feel that your doctor or GP has overlooked a serious health condition and you have been left suffering as a result, you may consider making a compensation claim to cover any additional costs that you have incurred as a result. 

Who could be responsible for this negligence?

In general when you are suffering from ill health or are having health issues, the first place that you will visit is your local GP and they are generally a good resource for information in regards to your health. Although GPs and doctors usually do a fantastic job of identifying exactly what is wrong with us, unfortunately this is not always the case and in some situations you may find that their negligence has led to an ignorance to identify potentially serious health injuries that you might have.

What are some situations where this could occur?

There are a number of situations which can lead to the misdiagnosis of tumours and these include:

  • Failure to accurately examine an x-ray
  • Failure to refer to a specialist
  • Failure to administer the appropriate treatment
  • Failure to send a patient for the appropriate tests
  • Failure to adequately examine and respond to tests.
