Tucson Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Doctors see thousands of patients, and many have similar symptoms. It might seem reasonable that a doctor can fail to recognize differences and treat each patient the same way. The truth, however, is that no two cases are exactly alike, and you should be able to trust your medical professional to treat you as an individual and not in a cookie-cutter manner. When a doctor wrongly diagnoses your medical problem because he didn't take the care to make sure your symptoms weren't a more serious illness or condition, and if this negligence led to further harm to you, you may have a claim. There is also the circumstance of a doctor failing to properly identify the problem, thereby not diagnosing correctly, including not recommending the appropriate treatment. If a serious disease is missed and not treated, the result could be a spread of the disease, even death.
