Recognizing an Incorrect Diagnosis
Diagnostic errors can happen for many reasons. Some conditions closely resemble each other, while others cause different symptoms in different patients. Sometimes doctors are simply too busy or careless to treat each patient with due care. However they may happen, incorrect diagnoses are a public health threat that needs to be addressed.
Unfortunately, patients being treated by negligent doctors are often torn between speaking up for themselves and trusting medical experts. You may want to seek a second opinion if your medical treatment involves certain warning signs of wrong diagnosis, such as:
- Your doctor will not listen to your questions or address your concerns
- Your condition has gotten worse since treatment began
- You have requested additional testing but have not received it
- Your symptoms do not match your diagnosis
- Your diagnosis is based on a single test, or just your symptoms
An experienced Tampa wrong diagnosis lawyer can help you determine if you have sufficient grounds for a legal claim. If so, you may be able to win recompense for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and possibly more.
