Failure to Diagnose & Other Diagnostic Errors

Maryland Medical Malpractice Lawyer with Three Decades of Experience Serving Clients *Nationwide

The only way for any illness or injury to be properly treated is if an accurate and timely diagnosis is made. The average person lacks the specialized knowledge necessary to diagnose their own ailments, thus relying on medical professionals to tell them what’s wrong and recommend the right treatment. But what happens if a doctor makes the wrong diagnosis? What if a diagnosis comes too late? What if a doctor completely misses the mark and dismisses or discharges a patient who has a serious illness or injury?

The Law Firm of Michael H. Bereston is committed to exposing diagnostic errors for patients and families who have suffered harm as a result of misdiagnoses, failures to diagnose, or delayed diagnoses. We have been fighting for the injured for 30 years and limit our practice to this specific field. This has enabled our Maryland medical malpractice attorney to build a wealth of legal and medical knowledge, which translates into more effective representation and better results.

To find out how we can help you, contact us online or call (410) 220-6581. Your consultation is free, and if we take on your case, you pay nothing unless we win.

Three Primary Types of Diagnostic Errors

There are three primary types of diagnostic errors we encounter in relation to medical malpractice:

  • Misdiagnosis – diagnosing one illness/injury for another. This can lead to the wrong treatment, unnecessary medication, painful and needless procedures, and more.
  • Delayed diagnosis – diagnosing an illness/injury too late. This can have disastrous consequences, particularly in medical conditions that must be diagnosed right away to give the best chance at successful treatment.
  • Failure to diagnose – a complete failure to diagnose a medical condition at all. Here, patients are undiagnosed and will experience the full effects of their illness or injury with no medical intervention.
