Misdiagnosis, Delayed Diagnosis, & Failure to Diagnose Cases
Injured? Contact A Miami Medical Malpractice Lawyer for Help.
A missed diagnosis or incorrect diagnosis may be the result of a doctor negligence, i.e. failure to spend enough time with the patient, failure to develop a full medical history of the patient, or failure to pay close enough attention to the patient's complaints and symptoms to diagnose the true cause. A misdiagnosis could also be the result of improperly performed tests or an incorrect reading of the results.
There is a large potential for error in medicine; the consequences of a medical mistake can be a life-and-death matter. When a medical misdiagnosis robs you or a loved one of the opportunity to fight a terrible disease like cancer or make an informed decision about your personal health, you may have a medical malpractice claim for failure to diagnose against your doctor or physician.
