Medical Malpractice Claims for a Delayed Diagnosis

Medical Malpractice Claims for a Delayed Diagnosis

A prompt diagnosis is essential when it comes to treating illnesses and disease. When a patient’s diagnosis is delayed, it can lead to devastating medical complications, physical and emotional suffering, and even fatalities. Negligent medical practices are often the cause of a delayed diagnosis. Proper healthcare necessitates that doctors conduct necessary research, order essential tests, and attend to a patient’s questions or concerns.

Illnesses commonly overlooked:

  • Thyroid disorders
  • Bacterial infections
  • Viral infections
  • Cancer
  • Kidney disorders
  • Liver disorders
  • Parkinson’s disease

  • First, you must be able to prove that a doctor-patient relationship was established between yourself and the doctor responsible for the delay.  
  • Second, you must prove that negligence was involved. Negligence can be demonstrated by defining the standard of care and then using evidence or expert witnesses to prove the doctor breached it.
