What are misdiagnosis claims*?
Medical misdiagnosis can have serious implications for patients. An illness or condition may be missed completely and the benefits of early treatment can be lost if the problem remains undiagnosed or is misdiagnosed.
In some cases, permanent damage can be caused and in serious conditions, a misdiagnosis could prove fatal. If you believe you have suffered injury, loss and damage as a result of a misdiagnosis then you may be entitled to compensation and you should speak with a solicitor to have a confidential conversation about your situation.
