Justin Received £15,000 for Misdiagnosis

Justin initially injured himself in 2014 and visited the hospital, fearing his wrist was broken. When he was seen, he was told that his wrist was not broken and that he didn’t require treatment.

However, the pain he was suffering continued, so he returned to hospital. He was seen by a different doctor, who informed him that he had, in fact, broken his wrist in the first place. The doctor told him that he would need surgery as a result.

The operation he went through left Justin with a three-inch scar on his wrist and hand. It has also meant that he now has to be far more careful with his wrist.

Following his misdiagnosis, Justin was watching television and saw a First4Lawyers advert. It prompted him to give us a call to find out whether he was able to claim any compensation for the problems he had faced.

We had an initial conversation with Justin and decided that he likely had a strong claim. We put him in touch with a solicitor who specialises in medical negligence claims.

Justin’s solicitor took on his case on a No Win No Fee basis. That meant that he didn’t have to worry about paying anything if he wasn’t successful.

But this wasn’t something he ended up needing to worry about. Justin’s solicitor secured him £15,000 for his misdiagnosis compensation claim.

Explaining how he found dealing with First4Lawyers, Justin said: “The experience with First4Lawyers was very professional and I didn’t have to worry about anything. I found them to be friendly and helpful and they explained all my options clearly. I would recommend them to family and friends.”
