Failure to diagnose claims can stem from a wide range of medical issues
Failure to diagnose is one of the most common types of medical malpractice cases. They are also closely related to misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis cases. Each patient is unique and each case is similarly unique and requires extensive investigation and analysis. There are many different scenarios that may give rise to a failure to diagnose claim. Our dedicated Minot medical malpractice lawyers routinely accept cases involving:
- Failure to properly evaluate a patient’s current and past medical history
- Failure to order proper diagnostic imaging tests
- Failure to correctly interpret lab and imaging results
- Failure to recommend an appropriate course of treatment
Each of these situations involves a healthcare professional’s failure to uphold their duty and adhere to an accepted standard of care. Medical malpractice claims are highly technical and often require consultation and testimony from expert witnesses to support your claims. Our team of medical malpractice attorneys has a proven track record of success tackling even the most intricate failure to diagnose cases.
A physician’s failure to properly diagnose and treat an acute medical condition may lead to tragic results
Some of the most common failure to diagnose cases stem from a doctor’s failure to correctly identify a cardiac event. Heart attacks must be treated promptly to prevent serious damage or even death. In many cases, patients present to an emergency department with varied and nonspecific symptoms. Doctors and nurses are trained to identify potential indicators of a myocardial infarction and failing to recognize these symptoms often leads to tragedy. Other acute conditions that must be diagnosed and treated quickly include aortic aneurysms, stroke and organ failure.
