Medical misdiagnosis can occur in two ways: the first is when an illness or condition goes completely undiagnosed by a medical expert, and the second is when the wrong diagnosis is made and therefore the wrong treatment is given.
In order to pursue a claim for medical misdiagnosis, a person must be able to show that the care given, or lack of care, led to them developing further complications.
For example, you may have suffered a fracture which was undetected on an x-ray. If you experience increased pain or suffering, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation following the misdiagnosis.
