Misdiagnoses is Medical Malpractice in Pennsylvania
Misdiagnoses (or failure to diagnose) is a common occurrence of Pennsylvania medical malpractice. There are two basic reasons why people visit doctors absent medical emergencies. First, patient seeks medical care because of a specific complaint or possible medical issue. Often an unusual pain, discomfort, or unusual bleeding will prompt us to seek medical attention. Another reason we visit doctors is for a scheduled visit or check up.
The first and most important step of the medical treatment process is to diagnose any medical problems.
Doctors are trained and educated to diagnose medical problems and recognize symptoms and signs to prevent future medical problems. Doctors cannot cure patients without first diagnosing a problem. This is the basic reason why patients visit doctors,
To properly diagnose medical problems, medical professionals need to take thorough steps in understanding a patient’s medical history and in ordering all reasonable and appropriate tests to ensure that any potential medical problems do not become aggravated or chronic.
The Failure of Doctors to Understand Medical History:
One of the most basic reasons medical professionals misdiagnose health issues is because they do not understand or take the time to understand a patient’s past medical history. With time constraints and limitations from insurance companies on payments, doctors have to see a high number of patients. This process has led to an increase in the number of misdiagnoses cases. Our medical malpractice attorneys are experienced in handling misdiagnoses and failure to diagnosis cases.
When individuals suffer harm as a result of a misdiagnoses or failure to diagnosis, then the treating physician may be held liable for any and all injuries suffered thereafter. If a doctor does not perform a thorough examination or does not order the proper tests or negligently misinterprets test results, the results can be devastating. Misdiagnoses and treatment of the wrong condition can make a patient’s condition worse than it was before he or she saw the doctor. if you or a loved one believes that a medical profession may have misdiagnosed a serious medical condition, let our experienced medical malpractice attorneys help you.

Pennsylvania Requires ‘The Certificate of Merit’:

A lawyer failing to obtain the certificate cannot bring a case to trial.
