Medical Negligence & Missed or Misdiagnoses
Medical professionals owe their patients a duty of care. Generally, this means they must treat patients in a manner a reasonably skilled provider would be expected to treat a patient in the same or similar situation.
In medical malpractice cases that allege diagnostic errors, there are many ways providers may fail to meet the applicable standard of care. Examples include:
- Failing to perform adequate examinations or patient history
- Failure to order necessary tests or imaging (CT, MRI, x-ray)
- Lab errors and incorrect interpretation of tests
- Misdiagnosing cancer
- Failure to diagnose cardiac arrest, stroke, or heart attack
- Failure to diagnose skin, breast, colon, and other forms of cancer
- Failure to diagnose in the Emergency Room
- Failure to diagnose complications or infection
Failures to timely diagnose can have devastating consequences for patients and their families. When injuries result from diagnostic errors and a health care provider’s substandard care, there may be options for pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit and recovering compensation for damages such as:
- Medical bills
- Future medical needs
- Lost wages and future earnings
- Pain and suffering
