Misdiagnosis is the Most Common Cause of Medical Error
A misdiagnosis might result from the incomplete or incorrect assessment of an ailment, disease, infection, injury, mental condition, or syndrome. An incorrect diagnosis can stem from physicians not receiving all necessary information, to physician inexperience and lack of familiarity, to poor record keeping and simple human error. In outpatient settings, misdiagnosis is the most common cause of medical error.
The most common kinds of misdiagnosis include
- Cardiovascular disease
- Myocardial infarction
- Pulmonary emboli
Proof that a doctor did not make a correct diagnosis and demonstration of a direct link between a misdiagnosis and suffering is required to prove a misdiagnosis malpractice claim.
If a physician was not provided with all family history information, and this led to a misdiagnosis, there may well be no claim.
However, if poor record keeping, lab errors, or physician negligence can be demonstrated, you are more likely to have a sound case.
Our experienced misdiagnosis malpractice attorneys will consult with medical professionals to secure an expert perspective on your case, and should seek to preserve evidence accordingly.
