Ottawa Negligent Misdiagnosis & Delayed Diagnosis Lawyers

Medical misdiagnosis is a specific sub-category of medical malpractice which can involve one of the following scenarios:

  • A patient is undiagnosed and therefore untreated
  • A patient is misinformed about their medical condition and is given incorrect or improper treatment
  • A patient is advised to take medication or treatment for a medical condition they do not actually have

These circumstances can lead to serious and unintended consequences, including injury, illness, disability, and even death. A victim of a medical misdiagnosis may have grounds for damages against the doctor or health practitioner responsible.

At Tierney Stauffer LLP, our experienced team provides practical legal solutions for patients affected by misdiagnosis, as well as for their families. We understand the challenges faced by those injured or made ill by a medical misdiagnosis, and we work hard to obtain the best possible result for our clients so they can move forward.

Frequently Misdiagnosed Conditions

Some of the more common types of negligent misdiagnosis include:

  • Cancer
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Aneurism
  • Diabetes
  • Flu symptoms
  • Appendicitis
  • Terminal medical conditions

Whatever the circumstances of your case, and even if it does not fit into the list above, you may have a claim for negligent misdiagnosis or medical malpractice.
