One of the errors that medical staff may make while inspecting and treating a patient is wrong diagnosis. A wrong diagnosis occurs when a doctor incorrectly identifies a patient’s ailment or wrongly prescribes a medication that the patient does not need.
Wrong diagnosis is a serious medical mistake that is doubly harmful. First, a patient may receive costly treatment or surgery that he or she does not actually need. Secondly, time wasted on an incorrect diagnosis is time that could have been spent addressing the real problem. Therefore a patient’s health may continue to deteriorate as the true ailment goes untreated.
If your injury or illness has been wrongly diagnosed, you are likely facing steep medical bills, lost wages from time taken off of work, physical pain, and emotional distress. Our Green Bay medical malpractice attorneys understand how devastating a wrong diagnosis can be on your health, emotions, and finances. We are prepared to help you pursue the compensation that you deserve.
We will fight on your behalf to determine who is responsible for your wrong diagnosis and hold the parties accountable in court.
