You Can Fight For Compensation From A Failure To Diagnose
On behalf of Hastings Law Firm Houston posted in Failure to Diagnose on Tuesday, September 9, 2014.
In order to receive proper, adequate and standard treatment, an attending doctor or physician must first diagnose you as accurately as possible. Sadly, for something as essential to your treatment as an accurate diagnosis is, misdiagnosis is far from uncommon — both in Texas and across the United States. If a failure to diagnose or recognize serious and problematic symptoms resulted in an injury, you may be eligible for compensation through the successful litigation of a medical malpractice claim.
It is expected that doctors stay educated on the most-recent diagnosing and disease information so that they can treat patients appropriately. In general, we trust that doctors have done so and continue to place our trust in them. However, failing to do so can result in an inaccurate diagnosis, and more pain and injury for you.
If a doctor or other healthcare provider continues to treat you based on a wrong diagnosis, then you may be at risk for your original problem going untreated. If allowed to fester, a disease or other health issue can become worse, even as you are receiving an unrelated treatment. For some, it may even be difficult to determine whether a misdiagnosis occurred in the first place, thanks to certain barriers that are often implemented in medical establishments.
If you believe that you are the victim of a failure to diagnose by a Texas healthcare worker, and you suffered injury due to improper or lack of treatment, your outlook may appear bleak. We understand how difficult it can be to face a mountain of medical bills on top of an injury, and we are prepared to fight for your right to compensation. If you are unsure whether you are able to pursue a medical malpractice claim for a misdiagnosis, please visit our website to read more.
