Failure to Diagnose in Richmond, VA
Richmond Medical Malpractice Attorneys Serve Virginia!
When a patient establishes a relationship with a physician, it is assumed that the physician will provide a reasonable standard of care to the patient. Anything that falls outside of what a reasonable physician would do in the same circumstance can be called medical negligence. If that negligence directly causes damages to the patient, a medical malpractice claim may be pursued.
Failing to diagnose a condition can be considered medical malpractice if the patient suffered loss or further harm because of that failure.

Definition of Negligent Diagnosis
Proving negligent diagnosis usually requires expert testimony, during which a medical professional testifies that any reasonable physician would have acted differently than the liable medical party under the same circumstances. At Cantor Stoneburner Ford Grana & Buckner, we network with experts in various fields to craft a case that can break through the most stubborn of defenses.
Take a look at some examples of negligent diagnosis:
- A medical professional may neglect to include significant information about a possible medical issue on the initial differential diagnosis list.
- A medical professional may wrongly conduct or read a test. This could lead to a mistake in narrowing down potential diagnostic possibilities.
- A medical professional may underestimate the urgency of a condition and delay the diagnosis.
- A medical professional may provide the improper medication, leading another medical professional to believe that the patient is reacting poorly to the wrong drug.
