Impact Of Not Being Diagnosed
If a medical professional fails to diagnose your diabetes or misdiagnosed you with a different type of illness, you could suffer serious health conditions as a result. Some of the most serious impacts of not being diagnosed with diabetes or being misdiagnosed with a different illness include:
- Kidney failure.
- Heart attacks.
- Head trauma as a result of falling when fainting.
- Bone fractures as a result of fainting.
- Lacerations as a result of fainting.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition. There is no cure for diabetes but there are ways to manage the condition. That is why it is very important for the medical professional to diagnose your condition as soon as possible so that you can get treatment and not suffer from any of the conditions listed above.
If you have Type 1 diabetes, you’ll need to use insulin to treat your diabetes. Insulin is taken through a pump or an injection. If you have Type 2 diabetes, you will have to use insulin or tablets to control your condition. However, it may be possible to control your condition by eating well and exercising more to get back to a healthy weight and fit condition.

As you can see, it is really important for diabetes to be diagnosed correctly and as soon as possible so that you can receive treatment. If a medical professional has failed to diagnose you with diabetes, you could be able to claim diabetes compensation as a result of this negligence.
The amount of diabetes compensation that you can claim will depend upon the specific details of your case. This amount of compensation is calculated by looking at two specific categories: general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your condition has caused you due to it not being diagnosed is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by understanding when your condition initially manifested and the impact that it has had upon your life as a result.
Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon the lack of diagnosis of your condition. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details about your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded.
Compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your condition, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to work due to complications related to diabetes. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your condition.TRY THE ONLINE ELIGIBILITY CHECKER
