Failure to Diagnose Medical Lawsuit
Missing a Diagnose is a Severe and Not Unusual Mistake – Our Attorneys Will Ensure Your Doctor Is Held to Account
Being told that you have an incurable disease is difficult news to receive. This is made far worse if you discover that your doctor should have diagnosed the symptoms a lot sooner when your care could have been far less costly and intrusive. Unfortunately, medical professionals do not notice vital symptoms of illness on a frequent basis but conceal these errors by falsely stating that the diagnosis is valid. If you have suffered as a result of a medical professional failing to discover your illness, our attorneys are here to ensure they are held responsible.

Discovering How and Why the Bad Diagnosis Happened
Medical practitioners are trained to make a diagnosis by ordering tests, reviewing symptoms and researching to understand what is wrong with you. However, if your doctor fails in their duty of care to make the correct diagnosis; your life may be in jeopardy. Most frequently, the error is a result of miscommunication between medical professionals, including those in charge of testing you. For example, your GP may not be aware of a discovery made by your radiologist or a lab test may show results that are not noticed by the lab worker.
Some other frequent errors are:
- Failure to order any tests
- Failure to act on a patient’s complaints
- Failure to screen regularly for certain conditions — especially in high-risk patients
- Failure to recognize symptoms
- Treating the wrong disease
- Delaying referral to a specialist
