Improper Diagnosis

Des Moines Improper Diagnosis Attorneys

Contact Us if You Have Been Injured Due to Medical Incompetence

One of the most fundamental and important duties of a healthcare provider is to properly determine the nature and cause of a patient’s pain or illness. Without success in this, there is no chance for the correct treatment decisions to be made, and patients are at risk of suffering serious health setbacks that may even prove fatal. Despite the significance of this phase of healthcare, improper diagnosis and the outright failure to diagnose diseases remains a continual problem in the current healthcare environment.

The consequences of these medical mistakes can be devastating for a patient and their family. Our team of skilled and experienced legal professionals will fight for the compensation and justice that you deserve.

Commonly Missed Diagnoses

There are many symptoms of illness that are shared among different conditions, so it can sometimes be difficult to figure out the specific ailment affecting a patient. However, taking the time and expending the necessary resources to solve that mystery is a vital component of healthcare that cannot be overlooked in the interest of saving time or money.

Commonly missed diagnoses include:

  • Cancer: Malignant tumors may grow to be inoperable if not diagnosed in a timely fashion
  • Different forms of heart disease: Can lead to cardiac arrest or other coronary events
  • Brain damage and impaired function due to clots or other compromise of blood flow
  • Infections: There are so many different kinds of infection and potential causes that the correct diagnosis is often overlooked

Physician Improper Diagnosis

The diagnostic exams, blood tests, imaging, and other steps taken by a physician when confronted with an ill or injured patient are among the most important actions taken in the course of treatment for one very simple reason: It is impossible to adequately and effectively treat or manage an adverse health condition in the absence of a proper and accurate diagnosis. Without such a diagnosis, any decisions made regarding treatment are made without the necessary information, and this can lead a patient down a dangerous path that spirals far away from improved health.

As a consequence of an improper diagnosis, you may have endured needless pain and suffering in addition to oppressive and unnecessary medical expenses incurred by your physician’s mistakes. Let us help you seek the financial compensation that you deserve.
