Were diagnositic errors in your case medical malpractice?

Most Washington, D.C. doctors work diligently to discover what is ailing their patients and then provide them with the appropriate treatment. That does not mean, however, that diagnostic errors do not occur. At least some of the serious injuries and deaths that occur could be medical malpractice.

The truth of the matter is that not all diagnostic errors are considered to be medical malpractice. Even though there are basic symptoms to most conditions, not everyone exhibits the same symptoms or the ones listed in the textbooks. Unfortunately, it could take time to come to the correct diagnosis.

On the other hand, some doctors are not as diligent as they should be. They fail to take an adequate history, order tests or otherwise fail to take the time to determine what is actually wrong with you or your loved one. The only way to know the difference is to discuss the matter with a Washington, D.C. attorney. He or she will more than likely consult with medical specialists who can review your case to determine if the care received by you or your loved one was subpar. Depending on the circumstances, a lawsuit could be filed.

Diagnostic errors such as misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis can have a profound effect on your life or the life of a loved one. It would be worth it to consult with an attorney in order to determine whether negligence was responsible. If the evidence points to medical malpractice, the court might award damages that could help with the financial losses associated with the error.
