Have you been further injured by a doctor’s failure to diagnose your illness? Let us help you.
Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis can be defined as a failure to correctly identify and treat a medical condition. Many medical conditions can be easily misdiagnosed by even the most skilled and best physicians and doctors.
Most common types of misdiagnosis cases.
The most common types of misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose cases that result in medical malpractice involve:
- Failure to diagnose or a delayed diagnosis of a heart attack or angina;
- Failure to diagnose or a delayed diagnosis of appendicitis;
- Failure to diagnose or a delayed diagnosis of lung cancer;
- Failure to diagnose or a delayed diagnosis colorectal cancer;
- Failure to diagnose or a delayed diagnosis breast cancer.
Some studies suggest that misdiagnosis cases account for an estimated 40,000 to 80,000 hospital deaths per year.
If you believe you have been misdiagnosed, you can be proactive. We suggest the following for “proactive patients” who want to stay one step ahead of their doctor.
- Research evidence and inform the doctor of errors she missed.
- Convincing doctors to better communicate with each other and YOU, the patient.
- Find a support group.
- Find a new doctor.
- Review all of your doctor’s notes and medical records on your own.
While this may sound reasonable, the truth is – misdiagnosing a medical condition can lead to serious consequences and results such as a terminal illness or, at the very least, a compromised quality of life with permanent disabilities.
