Failure to Diagnose Attorney in Hawaii
Malpractice Lawsuits Over Misdiagnosis and Failure to Diagnose
A physician must properly diagnose a condition in order to treat it. Obtaining the right diagnosis is critical when it comes to receiving the correct treatment. When a doctor fails to comply with the standards of practice for diagnosing a particular medical problem, the patient may be entitled to compensation for any resulting injuries or illnesses.
As an example, doctors occasionally fail to diagnose patients who have had a stroke or are undergoing other cardiac ailments. Physicians are expected to know the symptoms of stroke and heart attack (myocardial infarction) in order to properly diagnose and provide treatment.
Sometimes, medical conditions are simply difficult to diagnose. Your doctor has a duty of care to you to use every means necessary in order to diagnose your condition. When they fail to do so, they can be held accountable for the resulting damages.
Your Right to Compensation
If you informed your doctor of all your symptoms truthfully and your doctor misdiagnosed or failed to diagnose your condition, you may be entitled to compensation for your worsened medical condition.
You may qualify for compensation to cover injury-related expenses and losses such as:
- Medical treatment and care
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Lost income
- Home care
