Failure to Diagnose an Illness or Injury
Medical Malpractice Lawyer Serving Orange County, California
Medical malpractice may occur at any point in patient care - even before treatment begins. A doctor's failure to diagnose a medical condition may have a significant impact on the patient. Depending on the particular illness or injury from which the patient is suffering, the result of a failure to diagnose may even be fatal. Take a case involving a stroke or heart attack, for example. The patient may seek medical attention when suffering from pain in the chest and shortness of breath, both potential signs of a heart attack. If an emergency room doctor or the patient's general physician is particularly negligent and does not listen to the patient or observe any of the signs of a heart attack, the patient may be discharged, given heartburn medication, or told not to worry. Without immediate treatment that is relevant heart attack or stroke, the patient may lose his or her life or may suffer from permanent brain damage or paralysis.
