Respiratory Claims

Respiratory physicians treat disorders of the lungs, trachea, bronchus and bronchioles. There are many different problems people can have with the respiratory system including:

  • Cancer
  • Breathing problems from COPD, Asthma, Emphysema etc
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Pneumothorax
  • Infections such as pneumonia and bronchiectasis

Any failure in treating the above conditions promptly and adequately can result in serious injury to patients and death. We have significant experience of dealing with a wide range of respiratory claims, which include:

  • Delayed diagnosis of lung cancer
  • Missed DVT which led to death from pulmonary embolism.
  • Aspiration pneumonia following medical errors
