Understandably, some medical conditions can be difficult to diagnose, especially considering there may be many unforeseen complications. However, physicians still have the duty to provide care and proper diagnosis of an illness in a timely manner and as accurately as possible.
Failure to diagnose is one of the most prevalent types of medical malpractice and is also one of the riskiest for patients. If you or your loved one has experienced harm because a physician failed to diagnose illness properly, you must know your rights.
What Is Failure to Diagnosis
Many medical conditions are difficult to treat. Some of them require exhausting treatments, some of which do take a toll on the body. There is still a significant difference between those conditions that are difficult to diagnose and an incorrect or failed diagnosis. The latter most often stems from physician negligence.
These are the elements of failure to diagnose:
- Dismissing the symptoms as a minor ailment
- Ignores obvious symptoms of a more serious medical condition
- Diagnosis is correct but is the wrong stage of the illness (e.g., diagnosing Stage I cancer when the Cancer has reached Stage 4)
