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.
