Misdiagnosis claims

Medical professionals are trusted to make the best decisions when it comes to our health, and we often rely on them to identify the best course of action to take if we are unwell.

Patients should be able to rest assured that they can trust their GP to make a timely and correct diagnosis, but this does not always happen.

Unfortunately, medical misdiagnosis can happen, and this can have a devastating impact on the lives of patients and their loved ones. At Ramsdens Solicitors, our experienced team will demand answers from those who are responsible for your illness, and help you every step of the way through your medical negligence claim.


Misdiagnosis is the blanket term used to cover a range of clinical negligence cases. The term is extremely varied, and can mean anything from delayed cancer diagnosis to misdiagnosed epilepsy. Our medical negligence solicitors have years of experience in dealing with a variety of cases, meaning we are best placed to offer support and advice at this difficult time.

Common illnesses often misdiagnosed are:

  • ADHD misdiagnosis
  • Asperger’s misdiagnosis
  • Bowel cancer misdiagnosis
  • Breast cancer misdiagnosis
  • Diabetes misdiagnosis
  • IBS misdiagnosis
  • Meningitis misdiagnosis
  • MS misdiagnosis
  • Misdiagnosed ectopic pregnancy
  • Misdiagnosed blighted ovum

If you have been affected by any of these medical errors, it can be extremely distressing. We can help you to come to terms with what has happened, while offering the best legal guidance throughout the claims process.


The Ramsdens team will work tirelessly to investigate your case, drawing on expert medical opinion where necessary to ensure we hold the responsible parties to account. We will also look into any rehabilitation or long-term care you will need following the misdiagnosis.

If you or a loved one has suffered at the hands of a medical professional, do not hesitate to contact us about your claim. Call us on 0800 804 7450, or fill out our online claims form and a member of the team will be in touch.
