Medical malpractice misdiagnosis may occur if your physician fails to conduct a complete medical examination or if he/she fails to tell you that any symptoms you experience could be a sign of cancer. You may file a medical misdiagnosis claim if your doctor never told you that the symptom you are experiencing could be a sign of cancer or other illness.
Some doctors fail to practice with the high standard of care required of their profession. If a doctor, lab worker, or other medical staff members misdiagnose your medical condition, the detection and diagnosis of cancer or another illness can be delayed. When cancer is misdiagnosed, further symptoms may occur and the cancer may already spread to other parts of the body. That may require more invasive treatments and give a patient a lower chance of survival.
Malpractice lawyers have the knowledge in misdiagnosis cases to determine whether the improper diagnosis occurred, increasing your chances of harm. A malpractice lawyer will also help you file the malpractice claim so that you can be on your way to getting the compensation you deserve.
