Misdiagnosis is one of the most common medical mistakes. It can lead to the wrong treatment—and, even worse, prevent getting the appropriate treatment. If you or a loved one has been wrongly diagnosed and the misdiagnosis caused serious injury, ask for a free consultation with a medical malpractice attorney.
In a 2005 study, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that autopsy studies showed doctors made the wrong diagnosis 10 to 15 percent of the time. Other studies show an even higher incidence of misdiagnosis.

A misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose is medical malpractice, and it is critically important to hold the hospital and/or doctor accountable for the error.
Patients can suffer for years when an illness is misdiagnosed. Misdiagnosis can lead to the wrong drugs, the wrong treatment, or even a treatment that makes the condition worse. A misdiagnosis means that the true illness is left untreated—and that can lead to serious injuries or a wrongful death.
