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 what our ailments might be but because we do not have the knowledge about medicine to self-diagnosis.  

We are programmed to believe that, if we have regular medical check-ups, what Doctors pick up on a blood test or look of an abnormality. We also always presume that specializes 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.
