One of the most common medical mistakes is the misdiagnosis of symptoms or the failure to diagnose a medical condition. When warning signs or symptoms are present, it is often critical to the patient’s health that the doctor recognize those symptoms and make a prompt diagnosis. If a doctor fails to recognize or appreciate the complaints of their patient, the results can lead to significant injuries. If injuries resulting from a misdiagnosis could have been prevented, the patient and their family should not be responsible for the damages caused.
Every claim for medical malpractice has a time limit within which the lawsuit must be filed, known as the Statute of Limitations. Time may be running out on your claim, so you should have any potential claim reviewed as soon as possible to make sure your family is protected.
