Failure To Diagnose
The failure to diagnose can come in many forms and applies to conditions such as:
- Any form of cancer, heart attack, stroke
- A dissecting aortic aneurysm, compartment syndrome, fracture
- A detached retina, subdural hematoma, deep vein thrombosis
- A pulmonary embolism
The failure to diagnose a condition is a form of medical malpractice that requires a skilled medical malpractice attorney. Certain medical conditions require immediate diagnosis, and a delay can allow a condition or disease to progress into stages that are irreparable. Particularly in instances like cancer, heart attack or stroke, the failure to diagnose the disease in a timely manner can make the difference between life and death.
