If you or a loved one has been unwell but diagnosed with the wrong condition, you are likely to have suffered a delay in receiving the treatment that you need. In the case of time sensitive medical conditions such as cancer, the consequence of medical misdiagnosis can be fatal.
If you have suffered a medical misdiagnosis, you may have also been given surgical or pharmaceutical treatment that you did not need that has caused side effects or life long consequences.
Medical misdiagnosis is unfortunately all too common. If your doctor, dentist or other healthcare professional has misdiagnosed your medical condition, you may have rights to compensation for medical negligence.
