Failure to Diagnose
Call (954) 914-7116 Today
As upsetting or mindboggling as it might seem, one of the leading causes of
medical malpractice in America is actually when a doctor completely fails to diagnose an illness
or injury. Rather than being treated for the affliction that is actually
causing them pain and suffering, a patient is either not treated at all
or treated for something else entirely. Either way, the results are extremely
dangerous and unfairly put patients at risk.
Consequences of failing to diagnose an affliction include:
- Extended hospital stays
- Expensive medical bills
- Permanent debilitations
- Wrongful death
If your doctor has failed to diagnose your injury, illness,
cancer, or if they otherwise performed a
misdiagnosis, you may need to file a civil lawsuit against them to recover your damages.

Causes of Failed Diagnoses
At our law firm, we understand that hospitals, clinics, and emergency rooms
can be some of the most hectic, fast-paced places on Earth. We also understand,
however, that patients always deserve the greatest, most-effective treatments
when they go to such establishments for help. There is never a valid excuse
for failing to diagnose the problems that are afflicting a patient. With
that said, there may be reasons that lend to a doctor's negligence:
- Exhaustion or fatigue
- Ineptness and unfamiliarity
- Confusing one patient for another
- Needless haste
