A Michigan medical misdiagnosis lawsuit is when a doctor, physician, or hospital has made an improper diagnosis of a patient and from that improper diagnosis the patient suffered injury or death. These cases are different than a failure to diagnose a medical condition because rather than simply failing to make any diagnosis, the doctor, physician, or hospital arrived at an improper diagnosis.
Medical conditions that are frequently misdiagnosed by a doctor or hospital and are means for a medial misdiagnosis lawsuit in Michigan include:
- Blood clots
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Cerebral aneurysms
- Acute Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
- Pulmonary Embolism
- Bacterial Meningitis
- Testicular torsion
- Perforated bowels and colons
When a person pursues a medical misdiagnosis lawsuit in Michigan, the patient must prove that with the proper diagnosis, the patient could have received appropriate treatment and avoided additional injury.
