The consequences of a delayed diagnosis

With errors in the emergency room, pharmacist mistakes and errors made by an anesthesiologist, there are many examples of medical malpractice. However, you should be aware of the problems you may encounter if you suffer from a delayed diagnosis. Regrettably, delayed diagnosis cases occur far too frequently in San Bernardino, California, and cities throughout the nation. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, our law firm recognizes the myriad of challenges that victims of a delayed diagnosis may experience.

As a patient, a delayed diagnosis could affect you in a variety of ways. For example, if you have cancer and your physician fails to diagnose the condition properly, the outcome may be far worse. Sadly, you may even lose your life because the cancer was able to progress when it should have been treated much sooner. There are many reasons why your physician may miss something they should have caught, whether they failed to perform a diagnostic test or acted carelessly in a different manner.

With many serious health issues, such as cancer, time is paramount. When a medical professional fails to identify a condition when they should have, they may be responsible for significant suffering and even the loss of life. If you believe that you have faced hardships that were brought on by a medical professional's failure to diagnose a condition, holding them accountable for their negligence should be a top priority.
