Can You File A Michigan Medical Malpractice Lawsuit If A Doctor Fails to Diagnose?

Our Michigan failure to diagnose medical malpractice lawyers often represent clients and their families in cases where there is a failure to diagnose a medical condition or illness. The failure to diagnose a condition is a form of medical malpractice.  Failure to diagnose also includes a delayed diagnosis, which often has serious consequences because appropriate treatment is being delayed.

With certain medical conditions the delay can allow the disease to progress into stages that are completely irreparable, or hinder the recovery process.  In many cases, the condition progresses and becomes much worse.  With many illnesses and conditions, the failure to diagnose results in serious injury and often even death. In many cases where a proper and timely diagnosis was not made, the failure to diagnose is a negligent action that can give rise to a medical malpractice case.

Sue Michigan Doctor For Failure to Diagnose Medical Condition

It is the duty of a doctor to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of certain conditions. In the event that the doctor finds symptoms present that they cannot diagnose, they are responsible to determine the most likely cause and appropriately work up the patient to arrive at the proper diagnosis. If there is a failure to diagnose, a delayed diagnosis, or an under diagnosed condition by the doctor, the patient is unable to receive early treatment methods that may be necessary to prevent a condition from escalating. 

When Can A Delay In Diagnosis Be Reasonable?

Not all conditions can be diagnosed immediately and there are occasions where a delay in diagnosis can be determined to be reasonable.  It is only those cases in which the physician should have reasonably made the diagnosis based upon the medical history of the patient, the signs and symptoms, and diagnostic testing results that justify the filing of a malpractice claim.  Also, it must be proven that the delay in diagnosis resulted in harm to the patient.  If the outcome would have been the same as if there was a timely diagnosis, there is most likely no basis for suit.
