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. Contact David C. Rash, P.A. today to learn your rights as someone who has been hurt by medical negligence. You may also request a free case evaluation with our Florida medical malpractice lawyer.

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
