Appendicitis, abscesses or diverticular disease

“Thank you for taking the case on and bringing it to a successful ending. ”

Mr U Henley
The highly experienced Clinical Negligence team at BL Claims Solicitors has made successful compensation claims for clients in cases where appendicitis, an abscess or diverticular disease has been missed or diagnosed late.

If left untreated, appendicitis, abscesses or diverticular disease can be fatal as a result of the onset of peritonitis, where bacteria or fungi cases an inflammation of the peritoneum (the tissue lining the inner wall of the abdomen). Peritonitis can rapidly spread into the blood (sepsis) and to other organs, leading to multiple organ failure and death, but prompt medical diagnosis and subsequent treatment can prevent such complications. 

We use independent medical experts to examine your medical records in detail to determine whether your appendicitis, abscess or diverticular disease was made worse by a delay in diagnosing the condition and, if appropriate, prepare reports in support of your compensation claim for negligence.

Our expert Clinical Negligence team will fight to win the highest possible financial compensation for a delay in the diagnosis of appendicitis, an abscess or diverticular disease. In addition to any pain you may have suffered, we understand the impact it can have on your work and social life as well as any pain you may have suffered.

If the defendant GP, hospital doctor or hospital body admits liability at an early stage, we strive to obtain an interim payment of damages on your behalf to help with immediate financial burdens whilst our investigations are completed and your compensation claim for a delay in delay in the diagnosis of appendicitis, an abscess or diverticular disease is concluded.
