Medical misdiagnosis is a type of clinical negligence which can have a devastating effect on the victim’s life. Whilst for the most part, medical professionals accurately diagnose a patient’s illness, there are instances where they neglect their duty of care by failing to efficiently diagnose their patient giving rise to legal claims.
Making a Misdiagnosis Claim
There are a number of different circumstances which can give rise to a potential misdiagnosis claim:
- Your condition or injury is left undiagnosed;
- You are told you have a condition which you do not in fact have; or
- You are given an incorrect diagnosis and you actually have another condition.
