Most of us depend on our doctors and other healthcare professionals to give us good advice, identify medical problems, and in some cases, care for our loved ones. While bad outcomes do not always mean the medical professional has failed in their duty, sometimes their actions have caused a patient harm.
Diagnosis Errors by Medical Professionals
Sometimes when we go to the doctor, we are uncertain about what problem we are having. While we do our best to explain our symptoms, doctors are left to determine what tests are necessary. The more thorough a workup, the better the chances are our medical team will get to the bottom of the issue. Unfortunately, sometimes doctors fail to run the proper battery of tests to determine what the problem is. When this occurs, patients can suffer unnecessarily, be treated for the wrong disease, or could ultimately lose their life. In these cases, it is important to determine whether or not the mistake was avoidable.
Those who live in Portland, Salem, and Northwest Oregon, or Vancouver and Southwest Washington Kang Law Group may be able to help them determine whether a missed or inaccurate diagnosis was an unforeseeable occurrence or medical malpractice.
