Can I sue a hospital if a doctor misdiagnosed my medical condition?

Yes you can sue a hospital if a doctor misdiagnoses your medical condition.  In order to pursue such a lawsuit, called a medical malpractice lawsuit, it must be proven that the doctor or hospital was negligent when the signs and symptoms presented by the patient would lead a reasonable doctor to make a proper and timely diagnosis, and that if the proper diagnosis would have been made, a better medical outcome would have resulted. That is, with proper diagnosis by the doctor, the patient could have received appropriate treatment and avoided additional injury.

There is a statute of limitations when filing a malpractice lawsuit against a Michigan hospital when a doctor misdiagnoses your medical condition. Within two years of the date of the misdiagnosis or malpractice, a lawsuit must be filed. If you miss a deadline, your claim will be lost forever.   It is recommended to contact a Michigan medical misdiagnosis lawyer immediately if you or someone you love suffers injuries due to failure of a doctor to diagnose properly and timely one’s condition.
