Failure to Diagnose
New Jersey Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Medical professionals are trained to identify certain symptoms and signs patients are dealing with. While sometimes these symptoms can be more obscure or very general, other times they can very obviously indicate a certain medical issue is occurring. Doctors should know when to order tests or other diagnostic methods to determine what a patient is struggling with. If they don’t take the proper steps, they could misdiagnose or even fail to diagnose a serious medical condition. Have you or a loved one been the victim of a failure to diagnose? You need to discuss your situation with our New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers.

Were Your Doctor’s Actions Malpractice?
Doctors can make mistakes. Those mistakes are not always considered to be medical malpractice, however. That makes it very important for you to work with a qualified attorney who can help you identify incidents of medical malpractice and hold the appropriate parties accountable.
The following incidents may indicate malpractice occurred:
- Your doctor doesn’t ask about your medical history.
- Your doctor doesn’t try to identify risk factors for a condition.
- Your doctor failures to order any tests for your suspected condition.
- Your doctor orders the wrong tests or screenings for your symptoms.
- Your doctor doesn’t recognize obvious symptoms.
- Your doctor misinterprets your test results.
Remember, medical malpractice could occur at any level, so a lab providing the doctor incorrect test results could also be malpractice on their part. Also, you must have suffered harm, such as a worsened condition, or injuries due to the failure to diagnose for it to be considered actual medical malpractice.
