The Tragedy Of Diagnosis Delays And Mistakes

Misdiagnoses, leading to delays in proper treatment, are a major cause of medical malpractice in the United States. According to a recent eye-opening study by the Mayo Clinic, 20% of participants were initially misdiagnosed by their physician. Alarmingly, misdiagnoses and the delay in getting a correct diagnosis are more common than we think.

After A Wrong Or Delayed Diagnosis

We trust doctors to give us the correct diagnosis and corresponding care to resolve illness and disease, but what if the diagnosis is wrong? It is likely that the prescribed treatment for the misdiagnosed condition will not work, possibly leading your doctor to reconsider the diagnosis. This means that precious time is lost, and when the condition is something serious like an infection, heart attack, stroke or cancer, a diagnosis error can mean grave injury or death.

Crandall & Pera Law‘s team of medical malpractice lawyers, registered nurses and staff defends the rights of persons adversely affected by misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis.
