However, with illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, brain injury and cancer, an accurate, timely diagnosis is crucial to the patient’s prognosis.

Delayed Treatment May Cause Injury Or Death
Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis typically occurs when a member of the medical team commits an error or practices negligent care. This may include emergency room doctors, primary care physicians and family practice doctors, internal medicine doctors, OB-GYNs, radiologists, pathologists, diagnostic technicians and lab technicians.
Ignoring patient risk factors or symptoms and failure to do appropriate diagnostic tests in response to symptoms are two of the most frequent causes of a failure to diagnose an illness. There are numerous additional potential failures related to testing, including:
- Conducting the tests incorrectly
- Misreading the results
- Failure to follow up on test results
- Lab or pathology errors
- Radiology errors
- Defective diagnostic equipment
When we have determined the cause, we will pursue compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
