Appendicitis is an illness characterised by the inflammation of the appendix. This is a common problem, particularly in young adults. The symptoms may start with feeling uneasy around the stomach, stomach pain, and some diarrhoea. These symptoms can become severe in a matter of days, and they can lead to the illness being incorrectly diagnosed as gastroenteritis, food poisoning or stomach bug.
Also, failure to diagnose appendicitis or incorrect diagnosis can lead to a delay in treatment. If proper medication is not administered on time, this organ may burst to cause potentially fatal infections.
Appendicitis claim is a compensation for the suffering and pain suffered as a result of a doctor’s failure to diagnose appendicitis or the illness incorrectly diagnosed as gastroenteritis, food poisoning or stomach bug. The compensation may also cover the monetary earning for the time a patient spent off work, loss of earnings and other inconveniences for their family. If you are sure that your healthcare professional misdiagnosed appendicitis, you can pursue a claim for compensation.
Usually, most claims involving appendicitis misdiagnosis are funded through a Conditional Fee Agreement, commonly referred to as No Win, No Fee agreement. This means there is no financial risk to you because the expert medical negligence solicitor fee is deducted from your total compensation if the case is won.
Compensation for damages, suffering, and pain suffered as a result of appendicitis misdiagnosis usually vary depending on the individual circumstances. For young victims who had jobs with a potential lifetime earnings ahead of them, the monetary compensation is significantly higher in the case of fatalities.
