Sometimes, You Could Have Known Sooner

Failure To Diagnose

Did Your Medical Provider Fail To Diagnose You?

Let The Moore Law Firm Defend Your Rights As A Patient

Learning that you have a disease is terribly difficult. Learning that your disease could have been treated more effectively had your doctor diagnosed it properly can be devastating. Thousands of people in South Texas have suffered additional medical complications due to misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose. This type of medical negligence is responsible for an estimated 40,000 deaths in the United States every year. Many more experience increased medical expenses and a decreased quality of life.

There are a wide range of medical issues facing people in the Rio Grande Valley, and doctors must be thorough when diagnosing an illness. Your doctor should carefully listen to your concerns and symptoms and use appropriate diagnostic tools to determine the cause of your symptoms. Failure to do so entitles you to seek compensation for any future complications and medical expenses that result from a doctor’s negligence.

Commonly Misdiagnosed Illnesses

There are many diseases that doctors may fail to diagnose due to mild or absent symptoms. However, there are also many diseases that have very clear symptoms that should be diagnosed but are simply missed, often resulting in severe consequences. These misdiagnosed dangerous conditions include:

  • Cancer
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart attack
  • Infection

Misdiagnosis include more than just failure to diagnose. Sometimes patients are diagnosed with an illness and forced to undergo dangerous and expensive treatments before anyone realizes that the patient is not sick. Often, both kinds of misdiagnosis have the same cause: a failure to order a conclusive test. Your doctor has been trained to detect and treat every conceivable medical disorder. Medical professionals have an obligation to provide you with the most thorough and advanced screenings available. A failure to provide medical care at the accepted standard means they may be held liable for injuries you sustain.
