Missed Diagnosis and Failure to Diagnose 2016-11-04T01:27:04+00:00

Unfortunately, many of the medical malpractice cases we see involve a doctor’s error in finding out what is wrong with the patient. This is usually a missed diagnosis or a complete failure to diagnose a particular symptom or disease. As the patient, when you go to see a doctor or go to a hospital, you are at their mercy.

You depend on them – after all, it is your life that is on the line. You are putting your faith in their ability to tell you what is wrong and fix it. When a doctor or hospital engages in a misdiagnosis, or incorrect diagnosis, or misses the problem altogether, the patient can be lead down the wrong treatment path, which can cause a whole host of problems.

That wrong path can include improper treatment, delayed treatment, worsened condition, heart problems, pulmonary embolisms (lung, breathing problems), infections, and other life-threatening complications.
