Medical Malpractice Lawyer Serving Oakland
The misdiagnosis of a medical condition may affect a patient in different ways. Incorrectly diagnosing a medical condition may mean that a patient will undergo unnecessary surgery, will be administered the wrong medication, will be discharged from a hospital when in need of emergency treatment, or will otherwise be harmed when he or she could have been helped. The patient may be catastrophically injured or may even lose his or her life, all because a doctor failed to ascertain that the symptoms and test results were attributed to a specific medical condition. Considering the vast number of illnesses, diseases and injuries that a patient may suffer from, a doctor may be quick to assign the signs and symptoms of a patient to a common medical condition rather than seek additional tests to determine what's really going on.
