Did You Suffer After A Misdiagnosis In Maryland?
When you visit your doctor or any other medical specialist to be tested for an illness, you are probably operating under the assumption that they are researching every possible outcome in an effort to determine whether or not you should be undergoing treatment, and if so, what type of treatment.
Unfortunately, medical professionals can administer the wrong tests, read the results incorrectly or miss an indicator that would otherwise determine your fate. A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can have a severe impact on your health, leading to catastrophic injuries or even death.

Common Types Of Diagnostic Errors
The accurate diagnosis of an illness or injury is critical if it is to be properly treated. Doctors, emergency room nurses and other medical professionals have an obligation to provide a standard level of care when diagnosing medical conditions, based on their training and the tools at hand. If they suspect a condition with which they have little experience, they also have an obligation to refer a patient to a specialist who can make an accurate diagnosis.
Carelessness and other types of negligence can lead to serious diagnostic errors, including:
- Failure to diagnose a medical condition
- Delayed diagnosis of an illness or injury
- Misdiagnosis of a patient’s condition
- Wrongful discharge of a patient in need of medical care
A Timely Diagnosis Can Save A Life
Certain diseases or illness, when caught early, can be eradicated and your health can be restored. If missed, they are left to develop and spread, ultimately causing far more harm than necessary. This is particularly true with cancer and heart disease, which can be managed if they are caught early on but can cause significant harm if they are misdiagnosed or missed entirely.
Our attorneys work with patients who have been misdiagnosed or experienced delayed diagnoses of:
- Breast cancer
- Lung cancer
