Wrong Diagnosis Injuries
Free Consult with a Misdiagnosis Lawyer in Joplin, Springfield, Rogers/Bentonville:
Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals owe their patients a strict
duty of care when diagnosing and treating patients. Although diagnosing
medical symptoms is a difficult job, a doctor must properly examine a
patient in order to find an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. If
a doctor is in doubt, he or she must take precautions to do further testing
or refer the patient to a specialist. Failure to conduct testing or providing
the wrong diagnosis can lead to life-altering injuries.

The Hazards of an Incorrect or Delayed Diagnosis
Early diagnosis and treatments of diseases are crucial for the health and
longevity of patients. When a disease or medical condition goes undetected,
irreversible damage can result, causing life-threatening injuries and
affecting a patient's long-term health.
A wrong diagnosis can lead to:
- Progression of an illness
- Health complications from the wrong treatment
- Life-altering disabilities
One of the biggest signs that you may be misdiagnosed is if you are not
responding to treatment or if your symptoms do not match your doctor's
diagnosis. If you believe that your doctor has misdiagnosed your condition,
seek a second opinion immediately and contact a medical malpractice attorney.
