Medical Misdiagnosis Claim
What Is A Medical Misdiagnosis Claim?
A medical misdiagnosis claim is a legal action brought by a patient or their loved ones against a healthcare provider or facility for misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a medical condition. This claim typically alleges that the healthcare provider or facility failed to provide the patient with an accurate diagnosis, resulting in harm to the patient, such as delayed treatment, unnecessary treatment, or worsening of the patient’s condition.

Examples of medical conditions that may be the subject of a misdiagnosis claim include cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and autoimmune disorders. Medical misdiagnosis claims can be complex and challenging to prove, and they typically require the assistance of an experienced medical malpractice solicitor.
