Failure to Diagnose
Today’s technology allows medical professionals to thoroughly address a patient’s concerns through extensive testing. Tests can reveal a wide variety of medical problems, such as cancer, if they exist in the patient. However, if the tests are not done or a doctor fails to properly investigate a patient’s symptoms or concerns, or improperly interpret test results, a diagnosis may be missed.

- Flu or flu-like symptoms
- Pregnancy issues (such as preeclampsia and fetal distress)
Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis
A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis case may become a failure to diagnose case, or vice versa. These cases are closely related and until thorough investigation is done, including the gathering of all medical records, it may be difficult to determine what type of case you have. Our firm handles misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis cases, as well as failure to diagnose, and can help you understand the differences and the terminology that may be used in reference to your specific situation.
