Medical error in Greece due to wrong diagnosis

wrong diagnosis

Irreparable damage in the hands of professionals who you trust.

Imagine the irreparable harm that arises when a patient goes to the Emergency Department with symptoms such as chest pain and shortness of breath because it suffers from a heart attack, but the medical staff did not timely make the correct diagnosis. Every second that the patient's heart is not getting oxygen, the damage becomes more permanent.

It is not only heart attacks which might not be correctly and timely diagnosed. It can happen in other diseases, such as various cases of cancer, strokes, depression, meningitis, brain tumors, infections and hundreds of other medical problems. Months may pass by and the patient continues to feel worse. Finally, another doctor makes the correct diagnosis.

How misdiagnosis can be possible?

There are often times when a patient has all the risk factors for a certain disease, such as having a family history and the presence of genes of breast cancer/ovarian, and yet when the patient presents associated symptoms, the disease is not diagnosed. It's hard to comprehend that this really happens, but it happens. Sometimes tests or scans are not read correctly, or may medical history is not taken thoroughly, or often the doctor failed to connect the pieces of the puzzle. Regardless of the reason, patients should not have prolonged grief because of their doctor's negligence.

Cases of wrong or delayed diagnosis can be very complex and require highly experienced physicians, coroners and lawyers who have dealt extensively with medical malpractice.

We must clarify that the quality of medical diagnoses in Greece is of the highest standards and that all wrong diagnoses do not automatically linked with medical negligence. It must be demonstrated that the doctor did not exercise the skill or diligence expected of a prudent person equipped with the qualifications to exercise of the medical profession. The final judgment will be made by our experts who will examine impartially the subtleties and small but important details that would support your case for a legal claim. For that reason it is very important to have most thoroughly documented the available supporting data and it is equally important to come to us as soon as possible to look at your case.
