Delayed Diagnosis

Medical Malpractice Cases Based on Delayed Diagnosis

When you or a loved one is suffering from a serious medical condition time is of the essence. Unfortunately, delayed diagnoses are among the most common medical malpractice cases Bob and his staff sees. When a doctor delays the diagnosis of an illness, they put their patients at serious risk. There is an increased risk of complications or even death. With many cancers and other diseases, it is crucial that the doctors diagnose the illness as soon as possible.

Only by making a proper diagnosis can the patient receive the correct treatment in a timely manner. The delay of a diagnosis could then lead to a delay in critical and life-sustaining treatment for cancer or other diseases. The delay in treatment can escalate symptoms and lead to a more serious prognosis if not addressed early.

Bob and his staff have represented clients who have been victims of delayed diagnoses for over 20 years. Some of the most common cases that clients have contacted Bob about over the years with regard to delayed diagnoses occur when a medical provider misreads tests or x–rays, MRIs, CT scans, or fails to perform the correct tests or diagnostic procedures. The most common type of illnesses that have resulted in delayed diagnosis liability on the part of the healthcare provider include:

  • Heart attacks
  • Aortic dissections
  • Pulmonary embolisms
  • Infections
  • Pneumonia
  • Appendicitis
