Misdiagnosis can arise in several different ways. You may, for instance, be diagnosed with the wrong condition, or there could be a complete failure to make any diagnosis at all. Alternatively a late diagnosis may be given, resulting in delay that makes your condition worse.
If you have been the victim of misdiagnosis then it is important to consider the reasons for this and whether it was due to negligence on the part of the health professionals treating you. If there has been negligence then you may wish to consider claiming compensation for misdiagnosis.
