We draw on our significant experience in personal injury law and medical malpractice cases to handle medical wrongful diagnosis cases effectively.
Misdiagnosis and Delay in Diagnosis
Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis are common medical errors. Both can have catastrophic effects and are the subject of medical malpractice claims.
Misdiagnosis occurs when a medical condition is inaccurately diagnosed. For instance, a doctor may mistakenly diagnose a patient’s back or chest pain as a simple muscular strain, unaware that it is actually a symptom of an impending heart attack. Tragically, this misdiagnosis can lead to fatal consequences for the patient.
Delayed diagnosis refers to circumstances in which the proper diagnosis is made but after a damaging delay. Such delays occur when a doctor fails to order critical tests on time, such as lab work, colonoscopies, or breast imaging studies.
