Our experienced team of Clinical Negligence solicitors have a wide variety of experience in claims arising as a result of Delayed Diagnosis.    A large number of medical negligence claims derive from a delay in diagnosis of a medical condition or injury resulting in a patient’s condition worsening or in some cases their early demise.

Delays can occur in all areas of medicine, and these are some examples of cases we have seen:

Failure to act upon symptoms of cauda equina syndrome within 48 hours of presentation of such symptoms delay in diagnosis of fractures resulting in surgery or loss of function, delay in the delivery of a baby, causing hypoxia and resulting in cerebral palsy, delay in diagnosis of cancer resulting in a reduced life expectancy, delay of diagnosis of diabetes, delay in diagnosis of pulmonary embolism, delay in diagnosis of meningitis, delay in diagnosing an infection resulting in amputation, delay in diagnosis of a condition resulting in the loss of a loved one, delay by your GP to refer you for further investigations such as x-rays or blood tests, delay by your GP to refer you for specialist treatment

Am I being discriminated against at work?

In employment law discrimination means that you are being treated differently because of a specific protected characteristic such as your sex, race, religion or religious belief, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or age for example.

If you suffer a disability which affects your ability to work, the employer has an obligation to make reasonable adjustments for you.  This is a complicated subject with legal definitions for “disability” and “reasonable adjustments”, so if you believe that your employer has not accommodated your disability, you should take action: raise it via a grievance.  Ask the employer to refer you to an Occupational Health (“OH”) specialist who will prepare a report which will detail some recommendations to help you in the workplace.  The Employer should consider these recommendations, but note that they are only obliged to adopt them if it is reasonable for them to do so.  A note for women going through the menopause – this may be deemed a disability, and you may be entitled to expect your employer to accommodate you in some respects if these requests are reasonable taking into account the size of the business, the employer’s access to resources, and the requests.

If you feel you are being discriminated, you are able to get expert advice from Waldrons.  We will support you by giving you practical, pragmatic guidance and we will help you address your concerns with your employer.
