Failure to Diagnose Malpractice
Would you like to speak with an attorney now?
One of the most common medical mistakes is the misdiagnosis of symptoms or the failure to diagnose a medical condition. When warning signs or symptoms are present, it is often critical to the patient’s health that the doctor recognize those symptoms and make a prompt diagnosis.
A delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis of a medical condition can prevent a patient from seeking necessary diagnostic testing and may deprive a patient of an opportunity to receive treatment which could significantly impact their condition. This is especially true in cases of cancer misdiagnosis or other such conditions where early treatment is critical.
Medical mistakes often result in a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose when the doctor fails to give their full time and attention to the patient. If a doctor fails to recognize or appreciate the complaints of their patient, the results can lead to significant injuries. If injuries resulting from a misdiagnosis could have been prevented, the patient and their family should not be responsible for the damages caused.
