Misdiagnosis / Failure To Diagnose

When is Misdiagnosis a Medical Malpractice Case?

One way injuries or complications result from medical error is through a misdiagnosis. This can lead to damaging treatments such as incorrect surgeries or prescriptions, which cause further problems. Other times, doctors delay a diagnosis or fail to diagnose at all, which allows the issue to worsen.

Proving a correlation between a misdiagnosis and a bodily problem is difficult. Not all misdiagnoses are legitimate cases. A doctor may have diagnosed the patient incorrectly but still followed the correct procedures and acted as other doctors of that skill level would have in that situation. That is why these cases require detailed investigation and research to resolve.
