Failure to Diagnose
Medical Malpractice Lawyer Serving San Jose, CA
A primary part of medical care involves diagnosing medical conditions. In some ways, this is the most important part because it is the introductory phase of seeking medical care and will affect everything thereafter. As patients, we do not have medical knowledge or experience in order to know exactly what is wrong if we are injured or are feeling unwell. We rely upon doctors to conduct tests, talk to us about what we are experiencing and look at our medical history in order to make accurate diagnoses of our problems. Unfortunately,
medical malpractice or
negligence in the diagnosis phase of health care occurs and causes serious injury to patients on a regular basis throughout the United States.
If a doctor's failure to diagnose a medical condition caused injury to you or someone you love, do not wait to contact an attorney at Pacific Attorney Group. Your initial consultation is free and confidential, and this will be an opportunity for you to get valuable information about your particular case and what legal options you have in filing a claim against the responsible doctor or hospital.

Injuries from a Failure to Diagnose
Any failure to diagnose may lead to patient injury, as it may subsequently cause other mistakes:
medication errors, unnecessary surgery,
birth injuries, or the discharge of a very ill patient. These cases may be particularly serious when they involve a failure to diagnose cancer, stroke, heart attack, brain injury or other progressive or particularly traumatic medical conditions that may cause the death of the patient if not treated as soon as possible.
