Failure to Diagnose
Cases of Medical Malpractice
When an individual goes to a physician, doctor, or other medical professional, they are relying on them to accurately recognize and diagnose their symptoms, complaints and medical manifestations so that they can receive the proper treatment designed to resolve the specific pain, illness or injury. Without an accurate diagnosis, it is all but impossible to effectively treat an individual’s medical condition. In cases where a medical or health care professional fails to act or diagnose their patient’s condition in a timely manner, as per the standards of their given field, they may be guilty of medical malpractice.
One of the main problems stemming from a failure to diagnose a potentially debilitating or life-threatening disease is that not only is the individual forced to suffer physically, but they are left with the mental anguish of wondering what might have been had their condition been diagnosed earlier.
