Missed or delayed diagnoses are common grounds for medical malpractice claims. These claims can occur if a doctor has failed or been late in identifying and diagnosing an injury, condition, or disease. A failure to properly identify or diagnose can result in serious and permanent impairment, illness or even death.
However, a failure to diagnose or a delayed diagnosis does not establish a successful medical malpractice claim. If the outcome would have occurred even if the diagnosis wasn’t delayed or missed, you will not have a successful medical malpractice claim. In order to establish a successful medical malpractice claim for failure to diagnose or delayed diagnosis, you must establish both of the following:
- That the doctor or treatment provider breached the standard of care owed to the patient; and
- That the breach in the standard of care is the cause of the patient’s injuries
