No one is flawless. It’s simply a part of human nature that we all make mistakes. A hair dresser might cut your hair too short or a server might deliver someone else’s meal to you; either way, you’ve come across many mistakes caused by others throughout your life, some minor and some that may have had a big impact on your health. As much as we hope for the best, some times doctors make mistakes too, and these mistakes can sometimes be fatal.
Misdiagnosing ailments is medical malpractice and can occur when a medical professional fails to properly treat or neglects a medical condition resulting in the injury or death of a patient. To have a successful medical malpractice lawsuit, you need to show that the medical professional made a mistake, directly causing your injury. This can include misdiagnosing your illness, not providing proper treatment for your condition, misreading scans, not follow-up after you present symptoms and improper physical examination.
