Failure To Diagnose


Failure to Diagnose: A Dangerous Form of Medical Malpractice

When a medical professional fails to diagnose a patient’s medical condition, it can result in irreversible harm, loss of enjoyment of life, catastrophic damages, and even death. If your doctor failed to diagnose a medical condition which caused you injuries, we urge you to contact a New Orleans medical malpractice attorney from The Voorhies Law Firm.

Attorney Flinn is a former insurance defense lawyer and Attorney Voorhies has been selected for inclusion as one of the Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 by the American Society of Legal Advocates. With credentials such as these, you can be confident that your case is in very good hands.

How Does Failure to Diagnose Happen?

When patients go to the doctor seeking medical help, they are trusting their healthcare provider to perform the necessary investigatory steps to determine the true cause of their symptoms, whether this means performing a full battery of tests, or referring them to a specialist.

When a doctor makes a wrong diagnosis or fails to diagnose a medical condition, a host of negative consequences may ensue. An incorrect diagnosis can lead to aggressive treatments, decreased survival rates, a shortened lifespan, a delay or denial of the correct treatment.

With many types of cancers and diseases, an early diagnosis can make all the difference in the patient’s prognosis, and it can mean the difference between life and death.

Common medical conditions that are misdiagnosed:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Lung Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Heart Attack
  • Pneumonia
  • Stroke
  • Meningitis
  • Allergic Reactions
  • Medical Injury Misdiagnosis
  • Parasitic Infections of the Gastrointestinal Tract

Having your trusted physician misdiagnose or fail to diagnose your condition can be the most frustrating and heartbreaking experience you’ve ever had to go through. If you or a loved one has suffered undue injuries due to a failure to diagnose, you may be entitled to compensation for all of your losses.
