When can I sue a Michigan doctor for failure to diagnose a 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. In cases in which a physician has failed to diagnose a condition and it has caused  injury or death to the patient, the patient and his or her family have to  pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit against Michigan doctor.
