Claims For Misdiagnosis And Failure To Diagnose

Doctors and other medical professionals spend years learning how to identify and diagnose health conditions, and they are expected to follow standard treatment protocols when diagnosing or treating a patient. When certain symptoms or disorders are evident, doctors should undertake measures to identify the cause in order to properly diagnose an illness or condition.

A diagnosis is the foundation for all related medical treatment, so it can have a profound impact on a patient's well-being when a doctor diagnoses a condition that is not there, diagnoses the incorrect illness or fails to identify the problem altogether. When physicians and other health care providers fail to exercise proper care in diagnosing a patient, excessive treatment, improper medication and delayed treatment can all have devastating effects.

  • Heart attack
