We expect physicians and medical professionals to offer effective treatment for our illnesses and injuries. They can only do so when they properly diagnose our conditions.

Failure to diagnose cases may be more common than patients realize. According to Johns Hopkins researchers, “diagnostic errors could easily be the biggest patient safety and medical malpractice problem in the United States.”
Diagnostic errors may result in a delay in treatment which could cost a patient their life or allow them to endure a lengthy illness that could have been avoided. Some victims of diagnostic errors also receive unnecessary treatments with the potential to cause harm.
A physician may not always be considered negligent merely because they failed to properly diagnose a patient’s condition. For various reasons, even the most skilled and knowledgeable doctors can struggle to accurately determine what is ailing a patient sometimes.
To prove that you deserve to receive financial compensation when filing a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit, you must provide evidence indicating that your doctor failed to diagnose your condition (or a loved one’s condition) because they were careless. You may also need to demonstrate that another physician with the same qualifications and level of experience as yours would not have had difficulty arriving at a proper diagnosis.
Presenting such a case is very challenging to do on your own. Your odds of building a strong case and recovering the compensation for which you are eligible will be much greater if you have assistance from legal professionals who have represented clients like yourself in the past.
