Understanding medical misdiagnosis

If you have discovered that you have been the victim of a misdiagnosis, you need to first establish what type of misdiagnosis you have experienced.

There are basically two types of misdiagnosis:

The first is an incorrect diagnosis, or a misseddiagnosis. This occurs when a medical practitioner makes a wrong condition, or,fails to spot there is anything wrong with you at all.

The second is where a late diagnosis occurs whichdelays your treatment and causes unnecessary suffering or health problems as aresult.

Medical misdiagnosis can be made by a medicalprofessional in the private health sector or the NHS.

What medical conditions are commonly misdiagnosed?

  • Various types of cancers
  • Diabetes
  • Meningitis
  • Epilepsy
  • Fractures
  • Stroke
  • Asthma
  • Internal bleeding

I couldn’t recommend Andrea Bell enough, as a first time house buyer I was pretty clueless to the whole process. Andrea guided me through, responded to my emails extremely quickly put my mind at ease and didn’t make me feel silly with all my questions. She made a process that could have been very stressful very easy. Thank you!

— Zara Millar

If I could rate Andrea any higher than 5 stars I would. Andrea Bell helped me with the sale and purchase of my new home. Andrea was fabulous to work with, she was never too busy to answer any questions I had and kept me up to date throughout. She went over and beyond working tirelessly to ensure I completed and get into my new home during these challenging times. I can't thank her enough for all of her help. I would have no hesitation in working with Andrea again in the future and would recommend her to everyone for any conveyancing needs!

Myself and my young daughter were recently in a car accident and subsequently put in contact with O’Hare Solicitors. Naill O’Hare dealt with personal injury claims for both of us. Naill could not have made the process any easier, taking all the necessary steps and keeping in contact with me at every stage. Even during the recent lockdown situation Niall took the time to contact me with updates whilst working remotely. Naill was very helpful and professional throughout the entire process and negotiated great settlements for both of us in an extremely timely manner. I would have no hesitation in using Niall and O’Hare Solicitors again and would highly recommend to all.

I cannot recommend Andrea Bell and O'Hare Solicitors highly enough. My husband and I used Andrea for both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new house. Although our intended house purchase fell through, and we had to start again looking for a new home, Andrea pulled it all together for us and kept us focused through all the turmoil. Andrea is also the reason that today, coming out of lockdown we are in our new home 3 months. She worked tirelessly to get contracts signed, funds confirmed and keys exchanged while every company was shutting down and the country was going into lockdown. A true professional.

— Avril McDowell

A professional team on top of their game who will take you by the hand and guide you through the legal system and achieve the best outcome for you the client. I have used many local law firms for various reasons and found Colm Owens and his colleagues to be leagues ahead, totally transparent easily contactable and always deal with you in a friendly down to earth manner but not afraid to show their teeth when the pressures on in a court of law. Would highly recommend if you want someone in your corner with both guts and integrity.

— Sam Davidson

Absolutely without doubt the best legal service I have received over the years. Andrea Bell provides a flawless guidance that will easily meet and exceed anyone’s expectations.
