  • Not communicating risks involved in medical procedures*

  • Delays in diagnosing injury source*

  • Insufficient follow-up care*

  • Where there has been an avoidable delay in the diagnosis of an illness*

  • When the results of tests have not been acted upon*

  • When errors have been made in the performance of a procedure*

  • When errors have been made in the prescription or administration of drugs When follow up care has been inadequate or ill-planned*

The value of your case will be influenced by factors such as:

  • The extent of the physical injury

  • Post traumatic stress
