At MED Attorneys, we operate in a network of medical specialists able to identify diagnostic errors in all areas of medicine. A doctor's error in diagnosis, whether it stems from delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis, can result in devastating injuries or illnesses. Common examples of delayed diagnosis and misdiagnosis include:
When certain key elements have been established such as the existence of a doctor-patient relationship, medical negligence on the part of the doctor and the actual harm that was caused to a patient as a result of the misdiagnosis, the patient will be able to proceed with a medical negligence lawsuit against the medical practitioner.
Areas of delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis include cancer prevention and cure orthopaedics and misdiagnosis by a general practitioner over a long period of time.
