Misdiagnosis Of Life Threatening ConditionsHelp for Medical Misdiagnosis Victims
A medical misdiagnosis lawyer investigates what went wrong. Emergency room doctors, family doctors and specialists see patients with new symptoms and concerns. In cases where symptoms are consistent with potentially deadly conditions or conditions that require urgent treatment an incorrect diagnosis may have irreparable consequences. If a doctor fails to diagnose a serious medical condition and you suffered an injury that could have been prevented by a timely diagnosis you may have a medical misdiagnosis malpractice claim.
A medical misdiagnosis suit for a failure to timely diagnose a medical condition typically requires the following elements:
- A patient that presents to a doctor with symptoms that should have triggered an investigation to determine whether the patient suffers from a potentially serious medical condition.
- The patient fails to receive medical care that would have been triggered by a correct diagnosis.
- The patient suffers a serious injury or death that timely treatment more likely than not would have prevented.
