An incorrect medical diagnosis can lead to patient harm

Getting the correct diagnosis is the key when you are visiting a doctor for any medical concern. The correct diagnosis means that you can start an appropriate treatment plan. Even if the condition from which you suffer doesn't have any treatments, the correct diagnosis can help you to learn about your options for maintaining your comfort and living the best life possible. When you don't get a correct diagnosis, you can suffer from more harm. In some cases, you might even receive treatments that you didn't need.

There are certain things that you can do to help a doctor issue a correct diagnosis; however, it is ultimately up to the medical professional to make that diagnosis. When you go to see a doctor, the most important thing you can do is to give the doctor accurate information. Be as specific as possible about your symptoms and the timeline for those symptoms. That gives your doctor a starting point for determining what diagnostic tests are necessary.

If your doctor misdiagnoses your medical condition, you might decide to look into actions that you can take. A medical malpractice claim is one option that you have. This would be an appropriate action if you suffered harm because of the incorrect diagnosis. Even if your diagnosis was delayed, we can help you to learn about how to show your side of the case and make your claim in court.

It is crucial that you take action as soon as possible. If you are still trying to heal from the effects of the incorrect diagnosis, we can handle the legal aspects of your case while you focus on your health.
