Failure to Diagnose
Medical Malpractice occurs when a hospital or health care provider fails to meet their legal duty in caring for a patient. Unfortunately it is not as uncommon as you think!
You expected quality medical care... not negligence.
When the death or disability of a loved one is underscored by the lack of proper medical care, then your burden becomes both emotional and monetary. Negligence by a medical professional can include an error in diagnosis, treatment or illness management. If that negligence results in injury to a patient, then a legal case for medical malpractice can be made against the doctor, hospital or the government agency that operates the hospital facility.
