What is misdiagnosed miscarriage?

We’re used to putting ourselves in the hands of medical professionals, and most of the time they get it right.

Occasionally though, problems during pregnancy, such as heavy bleeding can be mistakenly diagnosed as a miscarriage. Devastating news like this is bad enough, but to then find that it’s not true can be traumatic.

A miscarriage is the loss of a pregnancy during the first 23 weeks.

A misdiagnosis can occur if:

  • a miscarriage is in fact an ectopic pregnancy – the symptoms can be similar
  • an ultrasound is incorrectly interpreted
  • an incorrect physical examination is carried out

Why make a claim?

An event like this can cause enormous emotional trauma and upset.  If you have been a victim of medical negligence, getting acknowledgement of the mistake and an apology can help. Financial compensation may also allow you the time to get your life back on track.

More about making a claim

How can First4Lawyers help?

Our specialist medical negligence solicitors are experienced in dealing with these kinds of claim sensitively and professionally.  They will put together all the required evidence and do all the legal leg-work on your behalf, leaving you the time you  need to recover. 

We also offer a No Win No Fee service for medical negligence in England and Wales. This allows you to proceed with a claim, without taking any upfront risk.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Our No Win No Fee solicitors will take a success fee from the compensation you are awarded for a successful claim in the form of a percentage of your damages. This could be up to 25% but it won't be more than that, except in cases of road traffic accidents and housing disrepair. Changing laws mean our solicitors will now take a payment of 35% of the final compensation amount plus VAT for all road traffic accident and housing disrepair claims.

First4Lawyers are an award-winning claims management company with a track record of delivering service that our clients love.

What are the compensation amounts likely to be?

Cases of medical negligence have to be assessed according to individual circumstances. As you will know, there are no two cases the same so aspects such as physical and emotional suffering, as well as recovery, treatment and financial losses are all take into account.

Have a no-obligation chat with our legal advisors, who will give you advice tailored to your personal situation.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

There is usually a three-year period, from the date you find out about the misdiagnosis, but there are some exceptions in medical negligence cases.

I think I have a claim, what do I do next?

Try to keep a record of what happened, including dates, circumstances and any other evidence. This will help when you get in touch with us. 

Initial advice is absolutely free and you’re never under any pressure to make a claim, unless you are happy to proceed.
