Medical Malpractice is a complex legal matter that generally requires an attorney’s assessment. One of the most common mistakes made by doctors and other health care providers is a failure to diagnose a condition in a timely manner. If a suspicious mammogram is noticed and acted on in the early stages, quick surgery and treatment can return a woman to her normal life in days or weeks. Cancer misdiagnosis can give the cancer time to metastasize and pose a grave danger. A failure to notice an infant in distress can result in a birth injury. Failure to diagnose and remove skin cancer can cause death. When a heart attack is diagnosed as a digestive problem and the patient is sent home, the result can be devastating.
