When errors in medical care occur you may have a Georgia medical malpractice claim. Medical malpractice lawyers in Atlanta can review your situation and see if you are entitled to compensation.

What Happens if My Doctor Misdiagnoses Me? What if they Fail to Diagnose a Serious Problem?

A misdiagnosis can occur when a healthcare professional erroneously determines that a patient is suffering from a certain medical condition. This can cause unnecessary or inappropriate treatment.

Failure to diagnose happens when a medical professional does not perform tests or procedures to detect serious medical issues that can result in a delay of treatment or no treatment whatsoever.

The aftermath of one or both of these errors can include serious injury and even death.
