A misdiagnosis can result in severe financial and medical difficulties, subjecting you to unnecessary treatments, long hospital stays, and wrong medications. Severe cases of misdiagnosis can result in permanent injuries or death.
Misdiagnosis due to negligence isn’t simply a case of a doctor making a bad decision or doing the best that they could with the knowledge they had. Misdiagnosis due to negligence is when a doctor fails to perform at the level expected of them by their own profession.

A legal case of medical misdiagnosis can take its root in many different causes, many of which may be considered grounds for a malpractice case. For example, if your doctor fails to perform tests properly, incorrectly interprets test results, or doesn’t respond in a timely manner to test results, it could lead to a serious misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis.
This delayed diagnosis may result in a number of serious consequences, including undergoing unnecessary treatments and operations, missing work, or taking unnecessary medications. While all of this is happening, the condition from which you are actually suffering remains untreated. Your body is being pelted with the wrong treatments and medications while it is suffering from another malady that could well be getting worse.
Misdiagnosis can happen with a wide range of diseases and conditions, from cancer to arthritis to heart disease to depression. However, all misdiagnoses can have serious consequences. Here are a few examples of misdiagnosis that changed the lives of the patients and their families forever:
