If you were injured as a result of a doctor’s misdiagnosis, you may be able to pursue a misdiagnosis claim in court. In order to have a successful outcome, it is necessary to prove that your injuries were the direct result of the doctor’s negligence.
While misdiagnosis happens for many reasons, the most common include:
- Failure to interpret test results correctly
- Failure to listen carefully to the patient’s complaints
- Failure to properly evaluate the patient’s symptoms
- Failure to order appropriate tests or imaging studies
Failure to make the correct diagnosis can lead to a failure to treat and lead to a host of medical problems you never anticipated.
