Delays In Treatment. Delayed Treatment Compensation Claims

Delayed hospital treatment can be one of the most serious instances of medical malpractice. There can be many causes of the delay: misdiagnosis; inadequate understanding of the condition; failure to complete and follow through on X-rays, scans or other tests; misinterpretation of symptoms.

If failure can be shown and proved to be a cause of deterioration, disability, reduced life expectancy or even death then there is a good chance of a successful claim

Whatever the causes, delay can seriously limit the treatment options available. And when delay leads to irreversible damage a patient will very often turn to litigation as the only recourse.

Proving Malpractice

It can often be difficult to prove malpractice, but if certain conditions are satisfied, such as the establishment of the doctor-patient relationship and the resultant duty to provide care in a timely, professional manner, then if the doctor fails to provide care to the expected level, and that failure can be shown to be a cause of deterioration, disability, reduced life expectancy or even death then there is a good chance of a successful claim.
