Michigan Wrongful Diagnosis Lawyers & Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Our Michigan wrongful diagnosis lawyers frequently represent clients in misdiagnosis cases. These cases are different than a failure to diagnose case because the physician or hospital has arrived at an improper diagnosis, rather than simply failing to make a diagnosis. A wrongful diagnosis is considered a mistaken identification of a medical condition.

Michigan Wrong Diagnosis Medical Malpractice LawyersIn order to receive compensation for injuries, the misdiagnosed must prove that the doctor failed to achieve a standard of care. The doctor should have ruled out every possibility that could have caused the symptoms with various tests until a definite diagnosis could be determined. In 2006, a New York Times article calculated that about 20% of every diagnosis involving a deadly illness is wrongly diagnosed.

Common Illnesses That Are Wrongfully Diagnosed

The most common illnesses that are wrongfully diagnosed include:
  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Strokes
  • Blood Clots
  • Meningitis
  • Diabetes
In order to win your case, patients must have experienced some type of harm or loss. For example, pain and suffering, high medical costs, loss of wages, and or loss of the ability to enjoy life the way they use to prior to their wrongful diagnosis injury.

Compensation In Michigan Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Medical malpractice lawsuit settlements include compensation paid for both economic and non-economic losses. Non-economic claims include payment for the pain and suffering caused by the medical negligence.

Medical negligence lawsuits that involve the death of the patient, further non-economic damages can be sought. These include compensation for loss of emotional support, comfort, companionship, society, moral support, and consortium. In the case of death, we will pursue a wrongful death lawsuit on your family's behalf.

Compensation is also owed to the family for ecomonic losses caused by the medical negligence. These include loss of earnings, loss of financial support and loss of work benefits (health insurance, pension). These claims all will contribute to the final settlement amount of the lawsuit.
