Being misdiagnosed can lead to being prescribed the wrong medicines, being referred for incorrect surgical procedures, or receiving no treatment that can cause injuries and illness to worsen, or lead to the development of new issues. Diagnosis is the first step when you visit a doctor, and you expect that they will take proper care of you; however, sometimes this does not happen.
Medical professionals have a legally binding duty of care to treat patients using established and correct procedures. If you have suffered from a misdiagnosis as the direct result of a medical professional’s actions, this is considered medical negligence and you are likely eligible to claim compensation.
