Holding Doctors Accountable For Diagnosis Injuries
Doctors have a duty to their patients to ensure that they are providing proper care and not endangering a patient’s health. There are many ways that a medical professional can violate this duty, including failing to recognize an illness or injury or taking too long to identify it. When a violation does occur, the doctor should be liable for the resulting consequences.
At Weston Smith Law, PLLC, we have been helping clients in the Tampa Bay area through their personal injury claims since 1992. You know the challenges of filing a claim against a major hospital and its legal and insurance teams, and we are ready to put our experience to work for you.
Common Diagnosis Error Causes
There are a lot of elements that can impact a delicate diagnosis process. When even one of these factors fails, it can result in medical conditions worsened beyond treatment or permanent consequences in recovery. Typical causes of either a misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis can include:
- A doctor not spending the necessary time with a patient
- Failure to follow up with a patient
- Lack of experience
- Faulty testing equipment
- Overconfidence in a medical professional
No matter what may have caused your diagnosis injury, we take the time to work closely with our clients to investigate and gather all of the vital information we need to develop a custom-tailored strategy for your claim. From there, we will negotiate to secure the compensation that accurately represents the current and future consequences of your injuries. If negotiations are not fruitful in providing you with the outcome you need, we are prepared to fight for you in court through litigation.
