Why Diagnosis Errors Occur
One of the most important jobs of a physician is to diagnose medical problems. Only with a timely, accurate diagnosis can you begin receiving the treatment you need.
However, when doctors are negligent, you may end up with a wrong diagnosis or a diagnosis that comes too late. These inexcusable errors happen because doctors:
- Fail to order the right diagnostic tests
- Fail to gather a full medical history
- Fail to take your symptoms seriously
- Fail to interpret the test results correctly
- Fail to refer you to a specialist
When you come to us, we’ll get to the bottom of what factors contributed to the harm you have suffered. Our attorneys won’t hesitate to pursue full compensation for you.
