San Diego Medical Malpractice Lawyer
In the field of medical malpractice, misdiagnosis is a situation that occurs when a doctor assigns the signs and symptoms of one medical condition to another, incorrectly diagnosing a patient and therefore causing him or her injury of some kind. Properly diagnosing an illness or injury is the first step in administering medical care that a patient deserves. In fact, doctors and all medical professionals have a legal duty to properly treat their patients, and any act of negligence, carelessness, neglect or intentional misconduct may provide a patient with the grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Misdiagnosis of an Illness or Injury in San Diego Hospitals
The major danger of misdiagnosis is that the entire course of treatment a patient will undergo will be built upon the wrong medical condition. A patient who is misdiagnosed may be discharged from a hospital when he or she is actually suffering from a life-threatening condition. Misdiagnosis may lead to medication errors, unnecessary surgery, birth injuries and a great deal of pain and suffering to a patient and his or her family.
The seriousness of misdiagnosis and the effects it may have on a patient have compelled our legal team to commit our time, energy and resources to helping patients throughout the San Diego area with lawsuits regarding this matter. To find out how we can help you, contact a
