The UNICEF Australia Goodwill Ambassador had sued Blue Mountains general practitioner Dr Chris Coghill in the NSW Supreme Court.
A different GP eventually diagnosed the 49-year-old with a tear to the fibrocartilage in her right hip and she underwent surgery in 2018, more than two years after she first complained of pain.
Moss claimed Dr Coghill’s negligence delayed her diagnosis and treatment, and she could have avoided the development of secondary complications, such as chronic hip and back pain that have required her to use a wheelchair or walking stick.
In defending the case, the doctor maintained he provided competent professional practice, arguing that Moss failed to advise that she was suffering from hip pain.
The lawsuit was discontinued before the ex-model’s claims could be aired at a NSW Supreme Court hearing scheduled for Friday.
The Canada-based Moss, through her Australian agent and lawyers, declined to comment on the quiet conclusion to her lawsuit.
Diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome, Moss is an advocate for issues of disability and chronic pain and has written about characters using mobility aids in some of her 14 novels.
She is also an advocate for both human rights and women’s rights, and broke news about the alleged murder of Reza Barati inside the Manus Island detention centre.
AAP has also reached out to Dr Coghill for a statement.
