Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Upstate South Carolina
If you are a victim of medical malpractice, you need an experienced attorney to help you file a claim and take the case to court. It is very difficult to prove a medical malpractice case, so you must choose a firm with experienced lawyers who have good relationships with medical experts and the financial resources necessary to gather information and build a solid case. Your attorney should also have experience taking these cases to trial and fighting against malpractice insurance lawyers.
Failure to Diagnose
One type of medical malpractice is failure to diagnose, which is one of the most common medical mistakes. Diagnosing a heart attack as acid reflux or another digestive problem, for example, can lead to devastating results. Without the right treatment, a patient can experience life-threatening complications. All of these mistakes can lead to death or other serious consequences.
Another type of medical malpractice is wrong diagnosis or misdiagnosis. This is when a medical professional diagnoses a patient with the wrong disease or injury. Misdiagnosis is a very serious error, especially if the patient has a serious illness requiring immediate medical attention. If someone with a severe headache goes to the emergency room and is diagnosed with a migraine instead of an aneurysm, that person will not be treated for the right condition. Brain aneurysms are life-threatening, so the wrong diagnosis puts the patient’s life at risk and increases the risk of serious complications.
Delayed diagnosis is also a problem for some patients. If someone with cancer is not diagnosed as soon as possible, the cancer could spread to other organs, making it more difficult to treat. The same goes for heart disease, kidney disease, and other serious medical problems.
