Failure to Diagnose and Missed Diagnosis
The Snyder Law Group, LLC is Here for You!
Failure to diagnose a medical condition, or missed diagnosis, is a common form of medical malpractice that can result in serious injury to the patient. A delay in diagnosis of a condition or a misdiagnosis of a condition with similar symptoms can allow a disease to progress and put a patient’s health at risk.
Conditions and diseases that can be deadly if misdiagnosed:
- Heart attack or stroke
- Dangerous infections
Many other conditions can cause serious health concerns and medical issues if undiagnosed. If a missed diagnosis has put you at risk, the Snyder Law Group, LLC can help.
Dangers of Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis
The effects of a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can be devastating and irreversible. Symptoms can worsen, or secondary conditions may develop the longer a health issue is left undiagnosed. In the most serious of cases, an issue can become fatal if not diagnosed.
Knowing what to do in this situation can be difficult for the patient and their family. Medical bills and legal obstacles can seem overwhelming. Our medical malpractice lawyers can help you and your loved ones understand your rights and legal options.
