Failure to Diagnose & Diagnostic Errors

Failure to diagnose a person's medical problem can often cause one to suffer physical and sometimes permanent life altering injuries. Diagnostic errors can occur in many situations, including:

  • When an x-ray is not read properly and a problem is missed and left untreated
  • When a mammogram is not read properly and a cancerous breast mass goes untreated
  • When a pathology slide is not read properly and as a result cancer goes undetected and untreated
  • Failure to diagnose a patient's symptoms of a heart attack in an emergency room or doctor’s office, allowing a heart attack to go untreated for too long

A failure to diagnose or other diagnostic errors clearly can alter a person's life and even survival. If you are concerned that a diagnostic error may have occurred, you should consult a medical malpractice attorney immediately to investigate the matter, as there are strict time limitations for pursuing these types of cases.
