What is medical misdiagnosis and who can I claim medical misdiagnosis against?

A medical misdiagnosis occurs when a healthcare practitioner either diagnoses an illness or condition incorrectly, or when they fail to diagnose the illness or condition at all. Medical misdiagnosis is dangerous as it can lead to wrong treatment or the absence of treatment.

Medical misdiagnosis claims can be made against healthcare providers that fail to provide their duty of care when examining, diagnosing, treating and advising you. If this is the case, they may be liable for the harm they have caused you.

What are the most common medical misdiagnosis claims?

The most common types of medical misdiagnosis claims can include:

  • Delayed diagnosis of medical conditions (such as ovarian cancer, breast cancer, or illnesses usually detected through a diagnostic test)
  • Cancer misdiagnosis (including bowel cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer or pancreatic cancer)
  • Misdiagnosis that make an existing condition worse
  • Failure to provide the appropriate treatment
  • Failure to perform surgery or the appropriate post-operative care
  • Incorrectly translating test results
