Failure to Diagnose
Appendicitis. Cancer. Heart attack. Stroke. The wrong diagnosis, or a delayed diagnosis, of these and other conditions can mean the difference between life and death. When life threatening conditions are detected and treated in a timely manner, their chance for survival or cure is greatly increased. When patients are deprived the chance at a better outcome as a result of a medical providers’ failure to apply appropriate diagnostic process and detect a condition within a reasonable timeframe, they breach the standard of care owed to the patient. The medical provider may be held liable for the worse outcome or wrongful death that follows after the undiagnosed disease or condition progresses, and the patient’s treatment options narrow.
