Misdiagnosis/Failure to Diagnose/Delayed Diagnosis

A Delay In Diagnosis Means A Delay In Receiving Appropriate Treatment

A missed diagnosis or an incorrect diagnosis may be the result of a doctor not spending enough time with a patient to develop a full medical history or failing to pay close enough attention to the patient's complaints and symptoms to diagnose the true cause. A misdiagnosis may be the result of improperly performed tests or results that were not read correctly.

There is a large potential for error in medicine; the consequences of a medical mistake can be a life-and-death matter. When a medical misdiagnosis robs you or a loved one of the opportunity to fight a terrible disease like cancer or to make an informed decision about your personal health, you may have a medical malpractice claim for failure to diagnose against your doctor or physician. The Miami medical misdiagnosis injury attorneys at Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A. are here to help; to schedule a free consultation, call 800-815-6232 or contact our South Florida firm online.

A Failure To Diagnose Lawsuit And Suing For Misdiagnosis

When you go to your family doctor, local hospital or urgent care center, you have the right to believe that your health care team will conduct the necessary tests to determine what is causing your symptoms. When you are given an incorrect diagnosis, you may suffer additional harm from an inappropriate course of treatment, lose valuable time in fighting the cause of your symptoms and take longer to recover from whatever is ailing you.

A mistaken diagnosis may constitute medical malpractice in Florida. At Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A., our Miami attorneys bring 90 years of combined experience and a history of success in medical malpractice claims to each case we handle, including medical misdiagnosis lawsuits based on:

  • Failure to diagnose diabetes or high cholesterol
  • Failure to diagnose a heart attack
  • Failure to diagnose an aortic dissection
  • Failure to diagnose blood clots, pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis
  • Failure to diagnose a stroke
  • Failure to diagnose cancer, including lung cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer or prostate cancer
  • Failure to diagnose infection or sepsis

A failure to diagnose lawsuit may also be appropriate when an undiagnosed labor and delivery complication results in a birth injury that causes serious, permanent harm to your newborn.
