Are you concerned that you may be a victim of medical malpractice? It is an unnerving feeling when you suspect that you are being taken advantage of by a medical provider. Each year there are many Americans who are unaware that they are victims because it can be challenging to identify the signs. However, it is essential to be aware of the red flags so that you can protect yourself and receive the proper care that you need. Keep reading and discover a few significant signs that you may be a victim of medical malpractice.
Your Diagnosis and Symptoms Do Not Match
It is essential that all patients pay close attention to their diagnosis and symptoms. If you notice that your symptoms are not in line with your diagnosis, you should have a reason for concern. Victims of misdiagnosis are often unaware because they trust their doctors and have no medical knowledge of their condition. This point is why many cases of medical malpractice fly under the radar.
Your Treatment Is Not Helping
If you receive medical treatment for a condition that is failing to correct the issue, it may be the case that you received a misdiagnosis. This is a problem because it could cause you experience additional complications or injuries because you did not receive the treatment your body needs. This can happen when a doctor doesn’t diagnosis you for every medical condition that you are experiencing.
Your Doctor Only Relied On Test Results
As the patient, it is your right to ask your doctor as many questions about your test results as you see fit. When you do not display the signs that the test results say, you should be questioning your results. In some cases, test results are inaccurate which can lead to a misdiagnosis.
