Common Types of Delayed Diagnosis
Failure to diagnose a serious condition, like cancer, an injury or a medical error can lead to dangerous complications. Our lawyers take on even the most complex failure to diagnose cases, such as:
- Breast cancer
- Lung cancer
- Heart attack
Without a proper diagnosis, an injury or illness can worsen, causing unnecessary pain and suffering, prolonged treatment and even causing wrongful death.
Why Does Delayed Diagnosis Happen?
A delayed diagnosis can happen for a variety of reasons. In certain instances, a doctor may neglect to order the necessary tests that would reveal the symptoms of an injury or illness. Other times, a doctor may perform a test but misread the results. A doctor may also fail to diagnose their patients' illness because they did not perform a test correctly, or the lab made a mistake when testing the sample.
Doctors, hospitals, and labs are required to follow strict regulations so that delayed diagnosis does not happen, but unfortunately, medical errors still occur and innocent people pay the price. If you suffered because a doctor failed to diagnose your condition, you deserve justice.
