How do medical misdiagnoses happen?

Washington residents trust medical professionals to do everything they can to help treat their conditions, catch problems before they become too big, and provide help. When that doesn't happen, Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan, attorneys at law, are here to help as you determine what move to make next.

The first thing to understand is that it can be difficult to prove whether or not a diagnosis failure was due to hospital staff negligence, whether partially or fully. There are some cases in which the symptoms simply don't present in a way that can be detected, even by professionals. Other times, symptoms may present so quickly or unusually that doctors or medical staff don't realize what they're looking at.

However, misdiagnoses can still happen due to negligence. For example, one of the most common causes of misdiagnoses or missed diagnoses are related to staff being overworked or tired. When exhausted, they can miss obvious signs of illness that should have otherwise been easy for a professional to detect. Misreading scans, doctor's notes, or missing physical symptoms can all result in misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose serious ailments in time to properly treat them.

If you or a loved one have suffered needlessly because of the negligence of the hospital staff that you trusted, consider taking a look at our web page on handling medical misdiagnoses, linked here. Having more information on hand, as well as a direct line of contact to our experienced attorneys, can be a lot of help to you.
