Delay or Failure to Timely Diagnose Cancer and Other Diseases
Every year, thousands are injured or die following medical malpractice in the form of a delay or failure to timely diagnose cancer and other diseases. There are myriad causes from time constrained doctor offices and ER rooms, to testing errors due to contamination, biopsy oversights, or even the overlooking of symptoms.
A false positive diagnosis might lead to unnecessary treatment such as chemotherapy or surgery, and a false negative might mean that a patient does not receive the timely treatment they would have had an error or oversight not occurred.
You Must Prove
To process a claim against a delayed or failed diagnosis, you must prove to a judge both that there was an error that affected the doctor’s judgment of your condition and that it adversely affected you in some way.
Negative impacts of delayed or failed diagnosis could include:
- Financial costs
- Decreased chance of survival
- Increased disability
- Emotional anguish
- Mental anguish
- and other personal problems
