Was Your Medical Condition Misdiagnosed?
The term “misdiagnosis,” which is used to discuss medical malpractice, can encompass a wide range of medical mistakes:
- Misdiagnosis of the source of pain after surgery such as a foreign object left in the body after an operation
- Misdiagnosis of fetal trauma during childbirth, which might have indicated a need for an immediate emergency C-section
- Misdiagnosis of a time-sensitive, critical medical emergency in an emergency room (ER) such as meningitis, a stroke or a heart attack
- Misdiagnosis of breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, leukemia or any other type of cancer
Did a surgeon operate on the wrong body part? Were critical windows of opportunity missed because a doctor failed to read lab reports or follow up with a patient after a medical exam? Did you or your loved one suffer serious harm because a health care provider failed to notice, diagnose or properly treat a condition or disease?
