The Consequences Of Diagnosis Errors
Medical errors of any kind can have lasting and severe consequences. Surgical errors and prescription errors can become fatal for patients, but what about diagnosis errors? If there was an issue with a diagnosis, it could cause a list of problems.
At HURST BOLEKY LLC, we know how dangerous a diagnosis error can be, and we know how to seek fair compensation for the resulting damage. Patients place a lot of faith in their doctors to take care of them when they need them most. When a doctor fails to meet that standard of practice, it is up to the patient to seek compensation for the damages.
Causes Of A Diagnosis Error
It can be a surprise to learn about all the forms of errors that can delay diagnosis or a misdiagnosis. Everyday diagnosis error situations come from:
- Testing errors
- Misreading test results
- Swapped patient files
- Diagnosing a different illness
No matter what caused the error, a patient should not be the one to pay for the consequences. We understand what it takes to pursue fair compensation, and we are prepared to fight for the best possible outcome.
