 Get a Medical Malpractice Lawyer For A Missed Or Misdiagnosis

Missed diagnosis and misdiagnosis are very  often medical malpractice. It is the professional obligation of a doctor or medical facility to make an accurate diagnosis and never miss a catastrophic medical condition.

What Is  The Difference Between a Missed Diagnosis Or  a Misdiagnosis?

When you  have  medical symptoms you expect your doctor to know what’s going on.  But, doctors can make mistakes. This comes under negligence, misdiagnosis, and failure to diagnose, or missed diagnosis.

What Is Misdiagnosis?

A medical malpractice case of misdiagnosis means that a doctor has diagnosed you with the wrong medical condition. Misdiagnosis may  result in unnecessary, ineffective, and dangerous treatments. The time and effort spent treating the wrong condition can often lead to the actual condition getting worse. Very often  by the time the correct diagnosis is established, valuable time, money, and effort have been wasted. A Misdiagnosis can be fatal.

What Is A Missed Diagnosis?

Missed diagnosis is  failure to diagnose or delayed diagnosis.  The doctor  has failed to identify your  medical condition at the time he was presented with it. You may not have have been given  the necessary treatment at the time you  needed it.

Medical Malpractice

Both misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis can result in a medical condition worsening during the time it takes to correctly diagnose the problem. If this has happened to you or a loved one you may have a medical malpractice lawsuit. The doctor is legally responsible for worsening your  medical conditions or medical costs that result from delayed treatment or incorrect treatment. Medical malpractice recognizes that delays in diagnosis and failure to properly diagnosis are physically, emotionally, and financially damaging to individuals. If you’ve suffered as a result of a misdiagnosis or a missed diagnosis speak to one of our medical malpractice lawyers.
