Failure to Diagnose
San Diego Medical Malpractice Attorney
Did a doctor's failure to diagnose your medical condition cause you injury? A San Diego medical malpractice attorney at our law firm may be able to help you take legal action. The failure to diagnose any illness or injury is a type of medical malpractice that may seriously affect a patient. Diagnosis is one of the most important parts of medical care as it lays the foundation of all treatment to follow. The medication prescribed and the course of treatment carried out will be based upon the diagnosis the doctor makes of your medical condition, and if he or she is unable to determine what is wrong this may mean that you will not receive proper treatment or that treatment will come too late. A failure to diagnose or any misdiagnosis is particularly serious when it comes to cancer or heart conditions, as early detection is often the key to offering the patient the greatest chance of survival.

Liability in a San Diego Failure to Diagnose Case
If your doctor failed to provide proper care in relation to the diagnosis of your illness or injury, you may be able to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the individual doctor or the hospital where the failure to diagnose occurred. In some cases, an insurance company may be held accountable in a failure to diagnose case, if they refused additional testing that would have allowed a doctor to properly diagnose the medical condition. However, it is important to discuss your particular case with an attorney with the experience and resources to address the matter.
