Misdiagnosis Defined

In medicine, there often is a difference between a doctor not diagnosing a patient’s condition right away and negligent misdiagnosis. Some illnesses are difficult to diagnose, and it may take more than one try to get it right. The issue is, did your healthcare team act as any reasonable professional should under the circumstances? If not, the team may have negligently contributed to your harm.

Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis due to malpractice is very dangerous and most often preventable. A wrong diagnosis generally leads to the wrong treatment or no treatment at all, which fails to cure the issue while causing unnecessary harm. Meanwhile, your actual condition may be growing worse, possibly leading to chronic illness or death.

Doctors and hospitals that are too careless or distracted to properly treat their patients’ health problems should be held accountable. Mr. Weitz is passionate about improving the health care system through litigation, which makes sure that bad doctors and hospitals cannot hurt any more patients.
