What Is Misdiagnosis?

When you visit the doctor, you expect an accurate diagnosis. However, in some situations, your doctor may act negligently, either providing you with the wrong diagnosis or simply failing to diagnose you. While certain medical issues will resolve on their own, a misdiagnosis of more severe conditions can lead to devastating consequences. One example is a failure to diagnose cancer. With a progressive disease, the sooner a professional detects and treats the disease, the greater the chances of overcoming it. However, misdiagnosis applies to a wide variety of scenarios. Contact Paul M. da Costa and his team to schedule a free review of your case.

Types of Misdiagnoses

We represent clients injured in a variety of misdiagnosis and failed diagnosis scenarios:

  • Diagnostic Error: Diagnosis error refers to causing injury by misidentifying a medical condition. This is common in emergency room settings, in which heart attacks, strokes, pulmonary embolism, meningitis, and appendicitis are frequently misdiagnosed. You need legal representation on your side to prove that there was a doctor-patient relationship, and that the doctor was negligent.  
  • Diagnostic Test Error: This type of misdiagnosis occurs as a result of faulty equipment, or because of a technician or specialist who made a mistake. In some situations, your case will be filed against a negligent party other than the doctor. 
  • Delayed Diagnosis: When a doctor fails to diagnose a problem such as cancer right away, the condition may require highly invasive treatment, the patient may experience a recurring problem, or death may occur.
