Dealing with a Medical Diagnosis Error

Get the Right Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyer to Help You Recover Your Losses

Most of us have a lot of respect for doctors, but they are not perfect. Sometimes they work too quickly, read a test incorrectly, order the wrong tests, or do not want to admit that an illness or condition is not their area of specialty.

When that happens, it is easy for the doctor to misdiagnose a medical problem, or to diagnose it too late.

Misdiagnosis: A Common Problem

A recent study by the Mayo Clinic’s medical journal found that 26% of medical cases are misdiagnosed. The Journal of Clinical Oncology has stated that as many as 44% of certain types of cancer are misdiagnosed.*

In a misdiagnosis, the patient is treated for the wrong illness. In a delayed diagnosis, the problem was identified correctly, but not soon enough. And sometimes the doctor fails to diagnose an injury or illness altogether.

If you or a loved one has suffered from one of these medical mistakes, you need to speak to a seasoned medical malpractice attorney now.
