Incorrect Diagnosis

Fotolia_52912435_XS.jpg

People trust that their doctor will provide them with the best possible care and correctly inform them of any potential health issues. Everyone knows that in order to be a doctor, a person must go through years and years of intensive education and training. As a result patients' often put their total trust in their doctor and believe anything they are told regarding their health. However, when things get serious, it may be best to get a second opinion to make sure that the diagnosis is correct.

An incorrect or a missed diagnosis can be devastating. You may be told that your health is fine only to find out later that information was wrong. One of the most common and potentially devastating examples is a failure to diagnose cancer. Cancer, if found early, has a greater chance of treatment and recovery. However, if the cancer is not found early enough because of the negligence of a doctor, it may advance past the point of treatment. Negligence of this caliber can result in the death of the person.

Another example of the impact of an incorrect diagnosis includes when a person is treated for a condition that is not present. Patients have been diagnosed and treated for cancer when none was present. This negligence can lead to the pain and suffering endured by the unnecessary treatment, the financial burden of the treatment, and the impact to one's livelihood.

If you believe that you or a loved one has received an incorrect diagnosis, you may have a medical malpractice case. It is important to act quickly and speak with an attorney. If you need effective legal support, contact Cohn Lifland for a consultation.
