Delayed Surgery Claims

We've got your negligent delay in treatment claim covered

Time is one of the most valuable assets in identifying and diagnosing illnesses and other issues.

If caught in time, with medicine as advanced as it is, people now stand much more of a chance of making a full recovery or living their lives relatively pain free.

Obviously, the sooner illnesses can be diagnosed, the earlier doctors and nurses can start the treatment.

If for any reason the treatment is delayed, this can lead to irreversible complications and health issues that are a lot more serious than first anticipated.

In these circumstances there are a few people who may have been negligent towards you. It could have been your GP who failed to diagnose or delayed your treatment, or the negligence may lie with hospital staff such as a specialist or the assisting medical team.

 

You may be able to claim:

  • If illness spreads to another part of your body without being detected
  • If delayed treatment causes your illness to be terminal
  • If you are in more pain, or your symptoms worsen as a result of the delay
  • If your health deteriorates significantly because of the delay in treatment
  • If you develop a more serious condition

So, if you’re looking for professional legal advice around delayed treatment compensation, or a negligent delay in surgery, our team at Patient Claim Line will be able to assist.

 

Claiming for delayed treatment

Receiving much needed medical treatment can be a daunting experience. The treatment itself may take time to become effective, and this can take its toll on you both physically and mentally. When that treatment is delayed, your condition could worsen as a result of the additional wait time; and the distress of this can also impact your wellbeing. When this happens as a result of negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

If you have suffered a delay in treatment, or diagnosis, we can help you assess whether you have the right to make a claim. Your compensation values will help to assist your recovery time and take care of any future care or treatments that are needed on a private basis.

 

Making an NHS delay claim

We fully appreciate that making an NHS delay claim can be a daunting prospect. However, when this delay comes as a result of negligence and your health is directly affected as a result, pursuing a claim for delayed treatment compensation can be the right option for you.

This also applies to seeking justice following delays to any surgical procedures that have impacted your long-term health.

Patient Claim Line has an excellent track-record at holding negligent medical professionals to account.

Vincent's Story

"He's always there for us"

At the age of 2 we noticed our son Vincent had trouble with his hearing. We had this testing over a number of years and were repeatedly told there was nothing wrong.

Initially we thought this was a speech and language problem, this wasn't the case. It took 4 to 5 years of assessments, with the constant response that there was nothing wrong with his hearing. A different test was them carried on Vincent overnight where it was found he was profoundly deaf.

After years of frustration we were finally able to provide Vincent with the support he required and received an implant. This has enable Vincent to be able to hear. The support from our solicitors has enabled to to gain access to specialist which have supported Vincent in closing the gap in his speech he lost out on to his peers.
