Failure to Diagnose Urgent Conditions

Whether you are seeing a doctor for a routine check-up or visiting a hospital’s emergency room, you are placing a great deal of trust in the physicians who treat you. If something is wrong that needs immediate treatment, you likely assume that they will find it and give you the care you need. Unfortunately, failure to diagnose a serious condition is one of the more common forms of medical negligence.

The consequences of such an error can range greatly, depending on the illness or injury involved. If it is an urgent condition, the patient may suffer from a lasting disability or even death. If you or someone you love has been incorrectly diagnosed by a negligent doctor, contact your Iowa lawyers LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233 today to discuss your legal options.

Urgent Conditions that May be Misdiagnosed

Some illnesses are never life-threatening, or they progress slowly enough that the patient may receive necessary treatment even if the problem is not initially noticed by healthcare workers. However, some diseases and injuries need immediate treatment to give patients a chance at recovery. These include:

  • Hemorrhaging, which may not be diagnosed in time if it is internal
  • Head injuries, which may initially seem less serious than they are
  • Heart attacks, which can present with similar symptoms to many disorders
  • Certain kinds of cancer that progress very quickly

Doctors should be held responsible for negligent mistakes that cause injury or death. Do not be silent if you have been a victim of medical negligence. We can help you fight back.
