In cases involving death, our lawyers file a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
According to recent research, 40% of malpractice cases reveal, physicians are not properly examining their patients, interpreting test results, or even implementing a reasonable follow up plan. In fact, in the U.S., on average, there are 110,000 malpractice claims filed per year, and as many as 98,000 preventable deaths from medical errors. Physician’s subject to misdiagnosis lawsuits often lack knowledge of which test to conduct and as a result they are unable to achieve an adequate diagnosis for their patients.
Has your physician made a conscious decision to not pursue a clinical finding? Did your physician choose to ignore your symptoms? Did your physician provide inadequate follow-up of abnormal laboratory results? It is possible that your pain and suffering could have been prevented or discovered, and properly treated earlier. Patients suffering injuries from a medical misdiagnosis do have legal rights and can file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the negligent doctor, nurse, or hospital.
Common Misdiagnosed Diseases
Misdiagnosis through our health care system is much more common than one would believe. In fact, the most commonly misdiagnosed diseases include:
- Myocardial Infarction
- Pulmonary Emboli
- Cardiovascular Disease
Not only can a physician make the mistake of misdiagnosis, a physician can also be found negligent if they did not properly refer their patient. This is also considered medical misdiagnosis, and may give rise to a malpractice lawsuit.
Medical Misdiagnosis Lawsuits
A recent report in the “Internet Journal of Family Practice” found that the highest settlements for medical malpractice lawsuits were related to misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, or delayed diagnosis. These patients placed their trust and health in their doctors’ hands. Unfortunately, these patients either did not receive the treatment they desperately needed, or did not receive a diagnosis soon enough to avoid further pain and suffering. Medical errors have also evolved from the physician’s failure to acquire their patient’s medical history.
