Misdiagnosis and Failure to Diagnose

Failure to properly diagnose a medical condition can have devastating, even fatal, consequences. Failure to diagnose can refer to ordering incorrect diagnostic tests, or ordering them too late. Similar to failure to diagnose, misdiagnoses involve attributing symptoms to the wrong condition. In either case, the patient does not receive the treatment they need to adequately address their symptoms. If an improper diagnosis results in an adverse consequence on the patient's health, legal action in the form of a malpractice lawsuit may be appropriate.
