Hello,

It could be that your condition was medically misdiagnosed by your GP which is quite common and is known in law as clinical negligence.

Clinical negligence claims are very common and there are lots of lawyers out there who may take your case on a contingency fee basis I.e. No win, no fee.

Hope this helps
