Injuries Caused by Misdiagnosis
Albuquerque Medical Malpractice Lawyer — 505.219.2176
Believing that you have a dangerous health condition that you actually
do not can be just as hazardous as the actual problem. When doctors misdiagnose
your symptoms and treat you for the wrong illness or injury, they can
jeopardize your wellbeing, worsen your condition, and waste your medical
insurance coverage through fruitless procedures. The best way to recover
your expenses and cover those that have yet to come may be to file a
medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor or hospital did you wrong.

What Can Misdiagnosis Cause?
Misdiagnosing an illness or injury, which is usually internal, is dangerous.
Do not take your doctor’s word for it if they try to convince you
that their mistake is not serious. You should consider seeing another
medical specialist as soon as you can to get a second opinion and diagnosis.
If you are misdiagnosed, some of the consequences could include:
- Unnecessary surgery
- Taking dangerous medication
- Worsening illnesses
- Unforeseen health complications
- Prolonged emotional and physical pain
Any sort of misdiagnosis, even for minor health problems, can lead to serious
issues. Once again, we encourage you to seek further medical assistance
when necessary to maintain and restore your health. If you are worried
about additional costs for treatment, keep all records of payment and
give them to your lawyer, who can calculate a proper compensation amount
on your behalf.
