What Is Medical Misdiagnosis?

One common form of medical malpractice is a misdiagnosis. Since most of us have not attended medical school, we place all of our trust in the hands of a doctor to diagnose us correctly. We depend on them to give us deep insight into our ailments because we do not know about medicine to self-diagnosis.  

We are programmed to believe that doctors pick up on a blood test or look for an abnormality if we have regular medical check-ups. We also always presume that specialists in a particular area are almost always correct early signs of disease or injury.

Sadly, not all doctors are as diligent and attentive as they should be. Although it is acknowledged that all human beings make mistakes, doctors are considered negligent when they violate their oath to “First, not harm.” If you have suffered a medical misdiagnosis, or if you have lost a loved one to wrongful death, you should contact a lawyer that is experienced in Medical Misdiagnosis cases to help take you through the process of filing a lawsuit.

Causes Of Wrong And Delayed Diagnosis

If you are qualified for a medical misdiagnosis claim, you must have your medical records thoroughly examined. Medical Misdiagnosis attorneys and medical experts can use them to figure out what ultimately went wrong. This will be the first step in figuring out what went wrong in your case.

Below are some standard medical misdiagnosis cases that are common:

  • Delayed Diagnosis due to a delay in ordering tests such as biopsies, blood work, MRIs, X-rays, or CT scans.
  • Failure to follow-up for examinations and communicating results to patients
  • Failure of the doctor to notice severe injury or illness from the medical tests
  • Errors from pathologists in medical tests
  • Inability to conduct tests correctly
  • Use of Defective Medical Treatment
  • Mistakes made in the lab such as reading tests wrong or mixing patients tests up

Conditions That Are Most Commonly Linked To A Medical Misdiagnosis Injury

  • Cancer
  • Food allergies
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease
  • Infection or Hemorrhage after an operation
  • Vital Organs damaged during surgery
  • Meningitis
  • Pneumonia

It is crucial that you hire a Misdiagnosis Attorney to help you with your case! It is a highly complex process that is hard without an experienced lawyer by your side.
