Failure to Diagnose Medical Conditions
Doctors cannot treat what they do not diagnose. Some conditions are difficult to diagnose or present in an especially unique way in a particular patient. When this occurs, claiming malpractice becomes more difficult. However, there are certain signs and symptoms of given health conditions which should prompt a doctor to consider that condition or rule it out through appropriate examination and testing.
We have litigated cases involving misdiagnosis and failure to treat many conditions such as cancer, infections, heart attacks, strokes, aneurysms, burst aneurysms, auto-immune diseases (e.g., hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism [disorders of the thyroid gland] and Addison’s Disease [disorder of the adrenal gland]) meningitis (inflammation of the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord usually due to viral or bacterial infection), encephalitis (inflammation of the brain, usually due to virus), stomach ulcers/gastric ulcers/duodenal ulcers, kidney disease, appendicitis as well as other conditions demanding timely treatment.
