When can I pursue a malpractice case?
When symptoms go unnoticed by doctors they can become major health issues
in time. When doctors fail to offer you the reasonable care that another
doctor would in such a situation, this could leave them liable for your
Misdiagnoses can happen for numerous reason including:
- Doctors who fail to follow up on diagnostic exams
- Doctors who fail to perform adequate exams or spend adequate time with
- Miscommunication between the patient and medical staff
- Doctor performing incorrect testing or reading results wrong
- Doctors who are not up to date on the latest medical research and technology
- Improperly screening a patient for certain types of cancer
Two things must be established to have a viable malpractice claim—a
doctor-patient relationship existed with your doctor, and that a doctor
in a similar situation would have acted differently. You will also need
to prove that your injury was as a direct result of the incorrect treatment
you received or lack of treatment.
