Medical Malpractice: Failure to Diagnose
An illness or ailment can present a number of challenges. When you are in need of medical assistance, you hold your doctor accountable for taking the measurable precautions to ensure that they do not miss important signs or fail to follow up on your condition in the most appropriate way. While a doctor may not always be able to uncover what an illness or injury stems from, they are required to take necessary precautions to protect your health.

A physician, surgeon or other type of medical professional should be held accountable to take the necessary measures to prevent a diagnosis error. This includes his or her duty to monitor a patient and conduct follow-up tests. Failure to diagnose an injury, cancer or illness can take many different forms, including:
- Failure to diagnose heart attack
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Failure to diagnose serious illness
- Misdiagnosis — causing unnecessary harmful treatment
If a doctor does not adhere to these practices, it can result in a serious debilitating injury or illness. A serious injury or illness can affect an individual for a significant amount of time, or for the remainder of his or her life.
