Failure to Diagnose and Misdiagnosis

Medical Malpractice Attorney Wichita KansasSome of the most common medical malpractice lawsuits we see are those involving a doctor’s failure to properly diagnose a patient. When a patient seeks medical help, he or she trusts their healthcare providers will perform the necessary steps to determine the cause of their symptoms. Unfortunately, at times, doctors make the wrong diagnosis, or fail to diagnose the true medical condition. A misdiagnosis, or incorrect diagnosis, can lead a patient down the wrong treatment path, and this can significantly delay proper treatment. With many types of cancers or diseases, an early and correct diagnosis can make a true difference in a patient’s prognosis. Early treatment is often critical. Failing to properly diagnose a patient prevents doctors from providing the proper treatment. And, failing to diagnose or treat a medical condition early can often lead to serious injury or death.
