Failure to Diagnose
People throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania entrust doctors to give them knowledgeable medical opinions about their health. Any delay in ordering or failure to order tests may result in failing to diagnose such severe conditions as:
- Heart attack
- Heart disease
- Kidney disease
- Pulmonary Embolism
When a person does not receive a timely or accurate diagnosis of a serious condition, it can have enormous consequences. Victims may suffer additional physical damage that worsens their conditions and reduces their chances of recovery. In some cases, failing to diagnose a condition will result in death.
Doctors have a duty to care owed to their patients, and medical professionals may have acted negligently if they failed to consider the correct diagnosis of a person’s serious condition. A diagnosis error can constitute medical malpractice and thus make the doctor liable to the victim or his or her family for the financial harm caused by the diagnosis errors.
Doctors are often heavily insured, and insurance companies are fully prepared to vigorously fight any medical malpractice lawsuit. These are extremely complex cases, and insurance companies will frequently argue that doctors acted appropriately. Oftentimes, medical experts will be sought to justify how he or she could have failed to diagnose a condition.
