Medical misdiagnosis is one of the most common medical errors committed in this country every day that endangers the lives of thousands. The misdiagnosis of symptoms or the failure to diagnose a medical condition quickly and accurately can, and does mean the difference between life and death for thousands of Americans on a daily basis.
Statistics show that over 40% of medical malpractice claims result from a healthcare provider’s failure to diagnose a condition or disease correctly. A misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose often results from improper diagnostic testing. The misreading or misunderstanding of the results of the tests or a total failure to even recognize the presenting symptoms also contribute to the possibility of a misdiagnosis.
