What Does ‘Failure to Diagnose’ Mean?

Many medical malpractice lawsuits are the result of a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis. This means that a doctor made an error in diagnosing a medical condition, illness or injury. But when a doctor’s error leads to the wrong treatment, delayed treatment or no treatment whatsoever it can cause a patient’s condition to worsen, potentially leading to death. In order to move forward with a medical malpractice lawsuit, a patient must prove at least these three things before their case will be considered:

  • A doctor-patient relationship was established
  • The doctor was negligent
  • The doctor’s negligence caused injury to the patient

However, the law doesn’t hold doctors legally responsible for all diagnostic errors. Knowledgeable and masterful doctors can and do make errors even when implementing appropriate patient care. The key to proving negligence is to find out if the doctor acted competently or not. To do this, a patient must also prove that a doctor in a similar specialty, under similar circumstances, would not have misdiagnosed the patient’s ailment. Some causes of misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis include:

  • Faulty lab equipment
  • Human error
  • High-pressure time constraints

In the process of proving negligence, there must also be proof of actual injury to the patient as a direct result of the doctor’s error. There are numerous ways that medical professionals can make diagnostic mistakes that may lead to making the patient’s condition worse including:

  • Wrong diagnosis
  • Missed diagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to recognize complications
