When a medical professional such as a family doctor, pediatrician or specialist fails to diagnose a condition, not only does the patient suffer, but his or her life could also be changed permanently. The condition could worsen, escalate or bring on additional conditions.
How Does Failure to Diagnose Happen?
There are many reasons why a doctor could fail to diagnose a condition. Some common examples of failure to diagnose include:
- Improperly reading a patient’s medical charts or test results
- Delaying sending a patient to a specialist for further or a complete examination
- Not ordering appropriate or all available tests
- Improperly documenting your medical information or medical records
When a doctor fails to diagnose a condition, the condition may worsen and the patient may suffer. This suffering can take the form of mental or emotional pain, physical pain, strains on relationships and an inability to manage household responsibilities.
How Does Failure to Diagnose Impact You?
In severe cases, a condition could worsen to the point where a patient can no longer work or provide for his or her family, resulting in loss of job or loss of income. In all instances, a patient’s quality of life is impacted in some way by the ongoing or worsening undiagnosed condition.
All of the repercussions of a doctor’s failure to diagnose can impact a patient financially. That’s where Baker Law Team can come in to help. Each way you have suffered can provide grounds for seeking compensation in your case.
