Medical Malpractice - Failure to Diagnose
Was your medical condition incorrectly diagnosed?
Failure to diagnose, as it is known in the medical and legal communities, can be a form of medical malpractice. It occurs when a doctor fails to take the proper steps to correctly diagnose a medical condition. An estimated 126,000 Americans die every year as result of doctors incorrectly diagnosing common medical conditions. When you feel ill and visit your doctor, you go expecting the correct answers. When you undergo tests, you do so anticipating a correct diagnosis. However, if your doctor failed to make the correct diagnosis, then your health could worsen and the outcome could be devastating resulting in large medical bills, loss of income, and even death.
