How Does Delayed Treatment Occur?
Medical care in the UK is usually of a high technical standard. However, with government cuts and no drop in sickness rates, our NHS is forced to do more with less, and resulting accidents happen. The most common medical error is to, either by misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose altogether, cause an unnecessary delay in treatment, which can have dire consequences.
The definition of medical negligence is when a medical professional with a duty to provide care fails to do so, resulting in harm to the patient. As such, as a common form of medical negligence, delayed treatment cannot be excused.

Examples Of Delayed Treatment Claims
One past client injured his knee in a sporting accident and underwent an X-Ray through which doctors failed to diagnose a fracture. Symptoms persisted and some 3 months later the fracture was finally diagnosed but by then it was too late to surgically manage the injury, leading to his medical discharge from the Navy and a resultant loss of earnings.
