Providing Misdiagnosis

You must understand that the law does not hold doctors legally liable for all diagnostic errors. However, patients must prove three things in order to prevail in a medical malpractice lawsuit based on misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose: a doctor-patient relationship existed in which the doctor owed a durty of care to the patient, the doctor was negligent by not providing treatment in a reasonable and competent manner within the applicable standard of care, and the doctor’s negligence caused actual injury to the patient.

Misdiagnosis may involve, but not limited to, the following:

  • Failure to recognize the urgency of a possible medical issue
  • Failure to screen or test for a specific medical condition
  • Failure to adequately consult with the patient about their symptoms
  • Failure to properly follow up and investigate potential causes of symptoms which are reported
  • Failure to refer a patient to a specialist
  • Misinterpretation of lab (pathology) results or other test results such as biopsies or scans
  • Prescribing medication for the wrong symptoms or condition or failing to prescribe medication
