When Can I Seek Compensation for Cyprus Medical Negligence Due to Medical Misdiagnosis
The law does not hold doctors legally responsible for all diagnostic errors. Instead, patients usually must prove 3 things in order prevail in a medical malpractice lawsuit based on wrong diagnosis.
- A doctor – patient relationship existed.
- The doctor was negligent in that the doctor did not provide treatment in a reasonably skillful and competent manner.
- That the doctor’s negligence caused actual injury to the patient.
There are several ways that physicians and other medical professionals can make diagnostic mistakes:
- Wrong diagnosis: also called misdiagnosis, this is when the doctor diagnoses the wrong illness. For example, a doctor diagnoses cancer when the patient is cancer-free.
- Missed diagnosis: the doctor gives the patient a clean bill of health, when in fact the patient has an illness or disease.
- Delayed diagnosis: the doctor eventually makes the correct diagnosis, but after significant delay.
