Did Your Doctor Fail To Accurately Diagnose Your Illness?

Physicians have a duty to provide an accurate, timely diagnosis. Diagnostic errors are one of the most common — and severe — forms of medical malpractice.

Having represented numerous clients in their medical negligence cases, I have handled these cases firsthand. I am attorney Daryl G. Hawkins, the founder of The Law Office of Daryl G. Hawkins, LLC. If you believe that your doctor’s failure to diagnose your illness or misdiagnosis caused you harm, then contact me today.

When Does Misdiagnosis Become Malpractice?

All doctors are human, and humans make mistakes. However, if a diagnostic mistake is the result of a deviation from the expected standard of care, then this is an example of medical malpractice. Some examples include:

  • Failure to thoroughly examine the patient’s medical history
  • Failure to communicate with the patient
  • Failure to notice symptoms
  • Failure to conduct appropriate tests
  • Failure to promptly act on exam results

It can be incredibly difficult to prove that a physician made a diagnostic error that qualifies as negligence. It requires an extensive examining of your medical records and medical history and conducting interviews with your doctor or other witnesses. Contact me as soon as possible if you suspect the presence of medical negligence.
