Medicine is an uncertain science, and inevitably diseases and illnesses are routinely wrongly diagnosed. This is often because of a failure on the part of the treating Doctor to spot and react appropriately to a diagnostic indicator.
Such failure to identify the correct diagnosis in the face of good evidence pointing to it does not always lead to unnecessary harm or progression in the injury/illness, but often it can do. When it does, a successful claim can be pursued.
