Misdiagnosis Injury Lawyers
Medical malpractice claims arise for a number of reasons, one of which is medical misdiagnosis. Specifically, when a physician fails to diagnose a condition properly, or if there is a delay in diagnosing an illness, the patient is at risk for experiencing unnecessary pain and a potentially dangerous decline in health. The following instances may lead to a missed diagnosis:
- Failure to read tests and/or labs properly
- Failure to report tests and/or labs properly
- Failure to communicate effectively with other clinicians concerning the patient
Additionally, patients may be misdiagnosed when their symptoms are indicative of multiple conditions, or when physicians become distracted, the doctor’s office or staff is short-handed, diagnostic equipment fails or when a patient’s records become mixed with another’s.
Whatever the case, when a patient’s diagnosis is missed or delayed, their condition cannot be properly treated in the time frame required. When this type of medical malpractice results in a patient’s injury or death, Wern Lawyers in North Charleston becomes your greatest ally.
