A Failure to Diagnose

There are many diseases and illnesses that have similar symptoms. It is the duty of healthcare providers to identify all possible causes and run appropriate testes to determine which condition is causing symptoms – enabling them to provide swift and appropriate treatment. Sadly, failure to diagnose a medical condition and misdiagnosis of a disease are all too common, even in our advanced healthcare system. When these issues result in injury or death, you have a right to hold the negligent parties accountable and seek full compensation.

Deadly Conditions

Some of the most commonly misdiagnosed conditions are those that pose that largest threat to patients. These include:

  • Cancer
  • Meningitis
  • Kidney disorders
  • Respiratory disease
  • Heart disease

Even when not fatal, failure to diagnose these conditions can result in significant complications including excessive medical expenses, an inability to work, and untold amounts of pain and suffering. If you have experienced these damages following a failure to diagnose, our lawyers are here to help.
