An accurate diagnosis of a genetic disease can be devastating, but a ‘missed’ or inaccurate diagnosis can be equally if not more devastating.
Genetics is the passing of traits from parents to offspring. Sometimes there can be a ‘missed’ genetic diagnosis.
If you think you may have a medical negligence claim involving genetics, contact us today.
Genetic tests can be carried out on adults and children, sometimes during pregnancy. These tests can confirm the presence of a disease and whether that person is a ‘carrier’ of the disease, and may pass it on.
Common problems that arise from genetic issues include:
- Failure to advise
- Failure to test
- Mixing up results
- Miscommunication of results
