A Failure To Make A Proper Diagnosis Can Have Tragic Consequences
When you experience symptoms such as pain or abnormal symptoms, and you visit your doctor to get help, you trust your doctor to determine the precise cause of the symptoms. When doctors or medical professionals either don’t take the time to listen to your complaints or don’t conduct the proper examination or tests to get to the bottom of your health concern, it can lead to a delay in diagnosis and treatment. Improper diagnosis or delayed diagnosis can lead to permanent and sometimes fatal patient outcomes. When a failure to make the proper diagnosis results in serious injury or death, there are legal pathways available for obtaining compensation.
