Medical Misdiagnosis Claims

Medical professionals have a duty to diagnose patients accurately and provide the appropriate treatment for a speedy recovery. However, sometimes medical professionals can get this wrong due to the vagueness of symptoms, resulting in the patient receiving the wrong treatment.

Doctors must interpret what physical symptoms the patient describes as well as how they are feeling to reach a conclusion and identify the illness.

If you have suffered due to a misdiagnosis, you could be eligible for a medical negligence claim. Our team of solicitors can analyse your situation and determine whether or not you have a valid compensation claim.

Types of medical misdiagnosis

Common types of misdiagnosis that patients have suffered as a result of a negligent medical professional are:

  • Doctors failing to investigate symptoms
  • Doctors failing to perform correct tests
  • Losing or wrongly interpreting scans, x-rays, smears or biopsies
