Wrong Diagnosis

Most people expect their doctors to be able to determine the cause of their discomfort or sickness. Unfortunately, despite the huge strides modern medicine has made in the last several decades, doctors do not always properly diagnose patient illnesses. In some cases, this may merely cause minor inconveniences. However, if a serious health condition is overlooked or misdiagnosed, patients may suffer severe complications or even death.

If you or someone you love has been injured because of a negligent doctor or nurse, the healthcare provider may be guilty of medical malpractice.

Commonly Misdiagnosed Illnesses

Because many different conditions have overlapping symptoms, it can sometimes be difficult for doctors to correctly diagnose their patients on the first visit. A correct diagnosis may require various tests to be performed for verification. For these reasons, commonly misdiagnosed conditions include:

  • Cancer
  • Heat attack
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Appendicitis
  • Pulmonary embolism

When a doctor or nurse fails to administer satisfactory care and patients are harmed as a result, the healthcare provider may be charged with medical malpractice. In many cases, a condition becomes increasingly severe the longer it remains undetected.
