Failure to Diagnose Lawyer
Failure to diagnose is a common form of medical malpractice that we see often. Medical malpractice is characterized as the failure to follow standard care in a situation that requires proper attention. The results often include injury to the victim involved in the situation. Many doctors are missing crucial data as they are spending a lot of their time getting approval for diagnostic measures and struggling to get reimbursed by insurance companies.
Examples of Claims
- Failure to diagnose breast cancer
- Failure to diagnose colon cancer
- Failure to diagnose heart attacks and strokes
- Failure to diagnose cervical cancer
*Failure to diagnose breast cancer accounted for about 40% of all medical malpractice suits filed in 1999.
Failure to diagnose claims can be tough to navigate through without the help of an experienced lawyer. Additionally, failure to diagnose claims can certainly be expensive to pursue (court costs, expert witness fees, deposition and investigative costs). The attorney, by Georgia Law, is required to produce an expert to confirm under oath that the victim’s medical provider failed to diagnose the victim properly. A detailed medical history of the medical malpractice is also essential to the case. The medical history should include the names of all physicians and hospitals that provided any form of medical treatment to the victim. A comprehensive history of all contact with physicians, such as dates, doctors names, symptoms, treatments and additional conversations must be recorded in a timeline.
