The doctor is not always right. Every year in the United States, one out of every 20 patients – or about 12 million adults – is misdiagnosed when seeking outpatient medical care, according to study results published in a prestigious medical journal in 2014. Moreover, the study reported, in at least half of those cases, the doctor’s failure to correctly diagnose a condition caused serious harm to the patient. These statistics don’t even take into consideration preventable errors made in hospitals. Additionally, instances of misdiagnosis in children in the US were not included in the study.
If you or someone you love has been injured due to a healthcare professional’s misdiagnosis of your condition or illness, we understand your desire to get justice for your family. You need and deserve maximum compensation for your injuries. You can rely on the seasoned medical malpractice lawyers at The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C. We are well known and highly respected throughout New Jersey for our relentless, and successful, pursuit of justice for our clients.
Experts suggest that doctors are often rushed, juggling too many patients or overworked and fatigued. A doctor can misdiagnose a patient’s condition (making a mistake by diagnosing the wrong condition; you are diagnosed with severe headaches, but you actually have an unruptured brain aneurism), as well as miss a diagnosis (failing to make a diagnosis at all; you are told a Pap smear is normal only to find out the test wasn’t interpreted correctly and you have cervical cancer). Either of these mistakes can lead to critical, life-altering injuries.
The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published a study in 2012 listing the following reasons doctors made preventable medical mistakes:
The JAMA study found that symptoms most often overlooked by doctors during patient exams include abdominal pain, shortness of breath and a cough. All of these can be chalked up to common ailments but are also signs of serious conditions that, left untreated, can cause disastrous results.
