Dallas Wrong Diagnosis Lawyers

Getting a wrong diagnosis is something that no one wants to face, but, unfortunately, is a reality for far too many innocent people in Dallas. In fact, as we at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter know, many serious conditions such as cancers, heart irregularities, and strokes that affect Dallas residents are misdiagnosed, causing additional pain, suffering, and consequences. Tragically, in the worst circumstances, a patient may die as a result of not receiving the right diagnosis for their condition.

While diagnosing certain conditions can be difficult, there are many instances in which a doctor fails to notice clear warning signs and symptoms or to perform tests that any medical professional should reasonable perform in that situation. In these cases, the victim of the wrong diagnosis can potentially hold the medical care provider legally and financially responsible for the consequences the wrong diagnosis has.

Dangers of a Wrong Diagnosis

There are medical tests and ways to diagnose a serious condition accurately, but sometimes medical practitioners fail to perform these tests or misread their results, leading to a misdiagnosis. Some common results of a wrong diagnosis include:

  • Illness-related weakness / fatigue
  • Increased risk for heart-related complications
  • Spread of cancer/ailment
  • Increased financial burdens

These are only some of the potential problems that a patient may face in the case of a wrong diagnosis. Unfortunately, the consequences can often have life-altering, if not fatal, consequences for the patient.
