Any delay in the diagnosis of a disease or other medical condition can have life-altering ramifications. A late diagnosis means late treatment, and this can cause the consequences of a disease to become far worse than if they had been properly detected at an earlier stage. Additionally, it may become necessary to use more invasive or side-effect-laden treatments — such as a stronger dose of chemotherapy — which are often just as taxing as the illness they are designed to treat.
Those who have been harmed by a delayed diagnosis and those who have lost loved ones due to the negligence of physicians and other health care providers have options; medical malpractice and wrongful death claims allow those harmed by a delayed or failed diagnosis to recover compensation to pay for their medical care, ongoing health needs and other damages. These claims also hold the negligent parties accountable for the harm that they have caused through their careless actions.
