Diagnostic Errors

Doctors are highly trained and often highly paid; most of the time they do their jobs well. But sometimes they make mistakes that have far-reaching consequences. One serious type of medical negligence is misdiagnosis — the incorrect identification of a medical condition or the failure to diagnose an illness or injury.

It can be shocking to learn that a serious condition was misdiagnosed by a physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner or other health care professional you trusted. It can be even more shocking to realize that a negligent practitioner's insurance company will fight the injured person's (or family's) claim, even when the evidence is clear.
