Medical Misdiagnosis

medical misdiagnosis

In the United States a medical misdiagnosis is the most common reason for medical malpractice lawsuits. If you are sick, in poor health and suffer from illness time is on your side in the beginning. If an illness, disease. disorder or syndrome is diagnosed early there is usually enough time to properly treat it. Failure to diagnose, an inaccurate diagnosis, delayed diagnosis or a misdiagnosis, can enable the disease to progress thereby narrowing the amount of options you have for treatment. This often leads to further illness, injury and wrongful death. If you, or a loved one, has been the victim of a medical misdiagnosis you may be entitled to benefits, medical care and financial compensation.

Failure to Accurately Diagnose Illness and Disease in Delaware and Maryland

Misdiagnosing an illness, or failing to properly diagnose an illness can have very severe consequences for the patient and their family. When taking a patient’s history a doctor may sometimes forget to order a necessary test that would have clearly indicated that a life threatening medical condition existed. In other cases these tests and labs are performed but warning signs are overlooked or disregarded. Even if a correct diagnosis is made, and is incorrect the complications can be severe and sometimes fatal.
