Call (865) 999-0101 now if a doctor failed to diagnose your life-threatening illness. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

If a medical diagnosis is delayed or missed, an otherwise survivable disease can result in death or serious impairment. The following are examples of misdiagnoses that can damage your health and may result in death:

  • Cancer misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose heart attack
  • Failure to diagnose meningitis
  • Failure to diagnose appendicitis

Not every instance when a doctor fails to diagnose an illness is malpractice. Sometimes a doctor can respond to your symptoms appropriately, order proper tests, and still fail to diagnose your condition early enough to achieve a positive outcome. Malpractice only occurs when there is evidence that physicians or hospital staff deviated from the accepted standard of care.

Examples of malpractice may include:

  • Failing to obtain a medical history
  • Failing to order appropriate tests
  • Failing to recognize observable symptoms of disease
