Failure to Diagnose
When you go to a doctor to have symptoms diagnosed, it is expected that the doctor will do everything in their power to properly identify any dangerous illnesses or other health problems.
If you go to a doctor and they fail to, or delay the diagnosis of a serious medical problem that results in additional harm or personal injury, it is known as failure to diagnose, a type of medical negligence. Your doctor has a duty to identify and help treat your medical symptoms, and if they are unsure of the symptoms, they should refer you to a medical specialist.
Many times, patients believe that there is nothing they can do about their illness or injuries they have suffered because of an initial failed or delayed diagnosis. However, a medical negligence claim may show that the doctor’s failure to diagnose directly resulted in you being harmed or injured and it may provide you with compensation for the injuries you have sustained, as well as any unnecessary medical costs you were forced to pay.
If you believe you have been the victim of medical malpractice and failure to diagnose, you may want to consider filing a medical malpractice claim. A medical negligence claim can be very difficult to handle without the aid of an experienced medical negligence lawyer. Your medical negligence lawyer will be able to investigate the circumstances of the diagnosis and show what injuries you suffered as a result of the medical malpractice.
In cases involving failure to diagnose cancer and other diseases, the victim and their family deserve answers. They may also be entitled to compensation for their financial losses and suffering. When you are hurt through medical malpractice, you deserve the representation of an attorney who can get you money to cover your medical bills and lost wages.
