Misdiagnosis Common Cause of Medical Mistakes
We expect our doctors and health care providers to diagnose us properly, to prescribe the appropriate medications, and to be medical experts when we are not. Unfortunately, human error sometimes leads to a misdiagnosis, which in turn leads to follow-up care (or a lack of care) that can severely harm a patient. In these cases, medical malpractice has taken place.
A misdiagnosis can be catastrophic for the patient and family members. Errors that can lead to this type of medical malpractice include a lack of communication between the doctor and patient; misinterpreted, misread, or incorrect tests; a delay in correct diagnosis; or no diagnosis at all. Misdiagnosis may occur with such serious conditions as heart attacks, cancer, appendicitis, and meningitis. If you or a loved one has been harmed due to a healthcare worker's misdiagnosis, our attorneys can help.
