Resolving Challenges in a Case Involving Misdiagnosis

Our attorneys work with trusted medical experts to show that a misdiagnosis resulted in harm. Our seasoned experts can clearly explain the standard of care in a specific incident and how the healthcare provider breached that standard. From there, we work to prove how that breach in care—the misdiagnosis—caused the harm. This involves proving that the harm would not have happened without negligence in the duty of care. Finally, our team shows the physical, emotional, and financial damages that were caused because of any of the following types of misdiagnoses:

  1. Wrong Diagnosis
  2. Missed Diagnosis
  3. Delayed Diagnosis

Conditions that are Commonly involved in Misdiagnosis

There are some illnesses or conditions that are more frequently misdiagnosed than others. This is because the nature of the condition can have a variety of symptoms that may also be shared with other conditions, including the common flu. The challenge to the healthcare professional in these cases is doing the tests necessary and monitoring how the patient is doing so an accurate and correct diagnosis can be reached as soon as possible. Negligence enters the picture when the duty of care to determine the right condition is not adhered to. 

Examples of commonly misdiagnosed conditions are:

  • Heart Attacks
  • Stroke
  • Thyroid Conditions
  • Diabetes
  • Celiac Disease
  • Lupus
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Endometriosis
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Cancer
