Representation from an Indianapolis Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Misdiagnosis occurs when a physician fails to recognize the symptoms of your condition and provides either an incorrect or delayed diagnosis. While a simple misdiagnosis alone is not enough to warrant legal action, when that failure leads to further medical complications or injuries, you may be able to pursue compensation.
Misdiagnosis can also come in the form of delayed diagnosis, which results in a patient developing a preventable illness due to a medical professional's failure to act or identify known issues promptly. Regardless of the circumstances of your situation, you need to seek legal counsel as soon as possible.
If your misdiagnosis caused you further injuries, be sure to call Parr Richey Frandsen Patterson Kruse LLP as soon as possible!Why does misdiagnosis happen?
Physicians can often ignore or fail to detect symptoms properly. Some may think the symptoms were simply the effects of stress, headaches, nausea, or other minor ailments. While those general symptoms can be misleading for doctors, there are more major symptoms that they are trained to detect early on for patients. When they fail to provide the reasonable and expected care that another medical professional in a similar situation would provide, it can make them liable for medical malpractice damages.
What are some common reasons that misdiagnosis happen?
- Doctor did not perform adequate examination or spend adequate time with patient
- Doctor did not order correct testing or read the results inaccurately
- Doctor failed to consult with specialists on the condition
- Doctor is not educated on the latest medical research and technology
- Doctor failed to follow up on diagnostic exams
- Miscommunication between patient and medical care staff
