Medical Malpractice: Failure to Diagnose
Failure to Diagnose

A 'failure to diagnose' is when a doctor fails to properly and timely diagnose a condition or disease, and that delay leads to complications or injuries that would not have happened but for the delay. Types of 'failure to diagnose' cases vary widely, but frequent examples include:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer;
  • Failure to diagnose aneurysm;
  • Failure to diagnose pulmonary embolism;
  • Failure to diagnose infection;
  • Failure to diagnose pneumonia;
  • Failure to diagnose childhood disorders;
And many more.
