Don't let diagnosis errors ruin your future

When you go to the doctor with a problem, you take your situation very seriously. You know you're not well, and you want the care you deserve. Doctors have an obligation to provide you with the best care available meeting care standards. You have a right to a second opinion, and you can discuss your illness or disability with your medical provider for additional help.

What happens when your doctor gets your initial diagnosis wrong? A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can allow your illness to progress or can result in further pain and injury. In the case of illnesses like cancer, going without treatment can lead to the illness progressing and becoming terminal or going into a late stage where treatment is less able to help.

It can be hard to prove that a diagnosis error was why you didn't get the help you needed. You'll need to prove that your illness was obvious or that your doctor missed what others would have found. You'll need to prove that a physician, pathologist or radiologist missed your illness completely and that any doctor providing a high standard of care would have been able to treat you.

It's normal for cases like these to end up settling out of court, because hospitals and medical professionals don't have time or want to go to trial. If that's what's expected in your situation, you'll need to sit down and think about the compensation you want and need before you decide to take a settlement. Our site has more on medical malpractice and misdiagnoses, so you can have all the facts before you prepare to sue.
