Chest medicine relates to the respiratory system, or problems with the chest, lungs and breathing. The negligent treatment, or delay or misdiagnosis of your chest and lung problems, including infections, can have devastating consequences.
Our specialist chest medicine compensation teams in London and Mancheseter have extensive experience of handling compensation claims for people whose chest disease symptoms have been missed or mistreated. Examples include:
- The negligence prescription of antibiotics which left a client with permanent lung and breathing problems
- The fatal failure by two GPs to diagnose tuberculosis (TB) in a patient
- The delayed diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- The fatal failure to diagnose lung cancer after the misinterpretation of X-rays
The failure of clinical staff to diagnose lung infections such as pneumonia and tuberculosis, or lung cancer can be devastating , as can the failure to properly treat and manage pulmonary embolism.
