How Can I Prove My Delayed Diagnosis is Medical Malpractice in Salisbury, Maryland?

This, which can lead to significant follow up care until the actual medical issue is diagnosed properly.

A delayed diagnosis is different from a misdiagnosis, which often leads to the patient being treated for a different ailment, as under these circumstances, the physician diagnoses the condition incorrectly.

A delayed diagnosis is medical malpractice when we can prove the physician who was treating our client breaches the medical standard of care that another reasonable medical professional would have provided under the same circumstances.

Common examples of delayed diagnosis may include:

  • The reported symptoms were missed by the physician
  • The symptoms are recorded by the physician as signs of something less serious
  • The physician fails to order further tests to prove or deny a diagnosis
  • No further tests were conducted to provide a different solution
  • Improperly conducted, misplaced, or lost lab tests
  • The patient is not referred to a specialist who may have diagnosed them quickly and effectively
