Failure to Diagnose or Misdiagnose Attorneys
Unfortunately, many catastrophic injuries and fatalities result from misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose serious conditions.
Experiencing a Doctor’s Failure to Diagnose or Misdiagnosis
Detecting a patient’s illness in a timely manner is crucial. Late or inaccurate detection can lead to unnecessary suffering or even death. According to a study by Johns Hopkins, medical error could be the third leading cause of death in the U.S. It is always painful when a loved one dies, but it can be particularly painful, traumatizing, and difficult to comprehend when a loved one dies of a preventable illness.
A failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis can occur when a medical professional fails to accurately diagnose a patient in a timely manner, resulting in permanent injury or death. When medical professionals are held accountable, it can prevent similar mistakes from happening in the future.
