Diagnostic errors by medical professionals constitute the majority of medical malpractice claims in the United States. Diagnostic error usually falls under one of the following categories:
Failure to diagnose a condition or a disease is usually the result of a failure to conduct the proper tests or failure to accurately assess or recognize a patient’s symptoms. Failing to diagnose can not only lead to the condition worsening but it can also lead to irreparable physical and psychological harm to the patient. A delay in diagnosis can lead to unnecessary pain and even death. For example, appendicitis, if diagnosed on time, can be treated quite routinely. However, a delay in this diagnosis could lead to death. A delay in the diagnosis of cancer could not only lead to a greater need for more and aggressive therapy and prolonged and intense suffering for the patient, but it could also lead to death.
The misdiagnosis, or incorrect diagnosis, of a medical condition could also lead to an improper course of treatment as well as the pain, suffering, and even death of a patient.
