Misdiagnosis is a common form of medical malpractice

We often hear about medical negligence claims stemming from mistakes made during surgery or throughout the course of treatment of a patient. However, many medical malpractice claims stem from the diagnosis of the patient's condition. Misdiagnosis of a patient's condition, or failure to diagnose a patient, can lead to improper care and eventually result in medical complications or death. In many cases involving misdiagnosis, a physician may ignore the severity of a patient's symptoms and send them home without treatment. This delay in treatment may cause the patient additional harm.

Establishing fault in medical malpractice claims
