Massachusetts Misdiagnosis Medical Malpractice

With all the numerous types of medical tests available to Massachusetts doctors and Massachusetts hospitals, you would think that a misdiagnosis of a medical condition would never happen. Tragically, this is far from the truth. Massachusetts medical misdiagnosis is commonly the result of a Massachusetts physician's failure to meet the required standards of care, skill and prudence in their field. Massachusetts misdiagnosis mistakes may include a completely incorrect diagnosis, a failure to properly identify the subtype of or underlying cause of a condition or a delayed diagnosis of a life-threatening condition.

Massachusetts misdiagnosis medical errors and Massachusetts delayed diagnosis mistakes can deny a patient the opportunity to get effective treatment for a condition before it gets worse. Massachusetts diagnostic errors can have particularly severe consequences in cases of serious illnesses such as:

  • Acute myocardial infraction (heart attack)
  • Appendicitis
  • Bacterial meningitis
  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Ketosis
  • Lung cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Stroke
  • Testicular cancer
  • Tuberculosis

The diagnosis of a particular disease is one of the most important aspects of the medical profession. The accurate timing of a diagnosis is critical because it can affect the degree of harm suffered by a Massachusetts patient before he or she begins treatment. Ultimately, it can mean the difference between life and death. When Massachusetts doctors do not follow accurate diagnostic procedures, or otherwise make a Massachusetts diagnostic error, they should be held accountable for the consequences that occur as a result of their mistakes. At the Boston, MA medical malpractice Law Office of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates, our Massachusetts misdiagnosis lawyers pursue Massachusetts medical malpractice claims against negligent Massachusetts medical professionals.
