Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Misdiagnosis & Negligence

DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) errors can occur where there has been a delay in diagnosis or treatment which can lead to fatal consequences. It is therefore important that patients or loved ones undergo an adequate risk assessment by their GP for thrombosis as failure to do so may affect a patients overall health and wellbeing.

Types of DVT Diagnosis & Treatment Errors

A delay or failure to diagnose and treat a DVT by a GP can have serious consequences on you or a loved one as there is an increased risk that the blood clot can cause a pulmonary embolism or travel to the brain, causing breathing difficulties or a stroke. Instances where this may arise include: 

  • A failure or delay in diagnosing a blood clot where clear symptoms are presented such as pain and swelling in one leg, warm skin in the affected area as well as redness and tenderness
  • Errors when treating a patient promptly once a diagnosis has been made
  • A failure to follow standard protocol once a diagnosis has been made
  • Delays or errors in reffering patients to hospital when required
  • A failure to provide follow up treatment 
  • And other DVT errors

If you or a loved one has been affected by a DVT error which has prolonged or exacerbated a medical condition, or has resulted in the death of a loved one, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
