Failure To Diagnose

Diagnosis Error Attorney in Philadelphia

Legal Help for Victims of Malpractice in Pennsylvania

Failing to diagnose an illness can be an extremely unfortunate and dangerous oversight. If an illness is improperly diagnosed, the necessary treatment may not be administered while the true ailment grows worse. Proper diagnosis is crucial to healing, and any delay in treatment can jeopardize a patient's chance of survival, especially in cancer cases. It is a doctor's responsibility to monitor the health of their patients and to take their concerns and symptoms seriously.

Some illnesses and health conditions that are commonly undiagnosed or are diagnosed late include:

  • Breast cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Appendicitis
  • Heart attack
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Colon cancer
