Here’s Why Diagnostic Errors Make Up The Majority of Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
Diagnosis of a condition is vital when it comes to treating the same. This means that physicians must rely on their knowledge and training in order to make the right diagnosis, and do so in a timely manner. You may not know this, but diagnostic errors are the leading cause of medical malpractice. Part of the Hippocratic Oath that doctors must abide by states that they must “do no harm”. This is bolstered by a legal concept known as standard of care, which is a level of medical care that every physician may abide by in order to provide treatment in any medical setting. Diagnostic errors therefore feature an element of negligence, something that should have no place in medicine given the fragile nature of human life. If you were injured by a physician due to them making critical diagnostic errors, you may be eligible for compensation and justice, and we’re here to help.

Why You Need an Attorney for Diagnostic Errors Lawsuits
A misdiagnosis or late diagnosis can mean life and death for most patients, especially those with chronic health conditions. In some cases, some diseases, if left to progress for too long can leave the patient with permanent, irreversible health damage that no amount of money can fix. In addition, most if not all physicians fight diagnostic errors tooth and nail as this will reflect badly on their career: the hospitals they work for are filled to the brim with aggressive attorneys and large insurance companies that are ready to do battle. Thinking of going it alone is not only foolhardy, but it may end up in you getting a laughable offer that you can later on do nothing about or reverse.
