Doctors spend years training in the proper way to identify, diagnose, and treat illnesses. When a physician fails to identify a condition correctly, it results in the wrong treatment. Under these circumstances, patients can experience harmful and even fatal effects. Mistaken diagnoses appear in every area of medicine, from cancer misdiagnosis to heart disease diagnosis to infectious conditions.
Proving negligence on the part of the doctor can be complex. Experienced medical professionals and medical malpractice attorneys need to examine the patient’s medical records, allowing them to pinpoint where poor judgement, unclear communication, or careless delays results in treatment failure.
