Misdiagnosis Injury Causes

Doctors must accurately and timely identify their patients’ health problems. For instance, they must:

    • Conduct a proper physical exam
    • Collect a thorough patient history
    • Order appropriate diagnostic imaging studies
    • Timely review those imaging studies

Also, doctors must timely explain their diagnoses to their patients. When doctors fail to perform one or more of those essential tasks, they may misdiagnose a serious medical condition.

Doctors often misdiagnose medical conditions when they:

      • Fail to order necessary screening tests
      • Erroneously interpret lab or imaging studies
      • Fail to identify the cause of symptoms
      • Delay essential treatment or provide harmful treatment.

If your doctor misdiagnosed your medical condition, you should contact our Atlanta misdiagnosis lawyers.

Commonly Misdiagnosed Medical Conditions

Many doctors misdiagnose life-threatening medical conditions. In fact, 20% of serious medical conditions are initially misdiagnosed. Some of the commonly misdiagnosed medical conditions include:

      • Cancer
      • Parkinson’s Disease
      • Lyme Disease
      • Fibromyalgia
      • Multiple Sclerosis
      • Stroke
      • Heart attack
      • Depression and anxiety

Misdiagnosis Injury Prevention

Doctors always blame their patients when they’re sued. For instance, some doctors contend that their patients withheld information from them.

Don’t give your doctor the opportunity to make that excuse. Instead, follow these three simple recommendations from our Atlanta misdiagnosis lawyers:

      • Prior to your first appointment, you should contact your previous physicians’ offices and ask them to fax or e-mail your medical records and your imaging films to your new doctor. If your new doctor has that information, they’ll be less likely to misdiagnose your symptoms.
      • Doctors are often pressed for time when they meet you. You may also feel rushed and forget to ask an important question. Therefore, you should make a list of 5-10 burning questions that you’d like your doctor to answer. That will ensure that you use your time effectively.
      • Bring a friend or relative to your appointment. They can provide you moral support. Also, they may ask an important question that you overlooked.

"When I felt all hope was lost, I contacted Graham Scofield to see if he could represent me. He immediately called me back and thoroughly reviewed with me the case. He was the most patient, kind, sympathetic and the upmost professional attorney throughout the entire process. He was also extremely knowledgeable about the law and was creative when the case worked through the twists and turns. He was also a heck of a fighter for me and got me more settlement than I was expecting. I only wish I called him sooner! Thank you so much Graham, you are an amazing lawyer!!"
