Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Filed For Failure to Diagnose Blood Clot

Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Filed For Failure to Diagnose Blood Clot

A recent medical malpractice lawsuit has been filed against a local hospital. According to reports, a young female doctor arrived at a medical center with the "unmistakable signs" of a blood clot. Had the blood clot been properly diagnosed, the lawsuit asserts, the woman could have been effectively treated. However, the complaint asserts that the doctors did not recognize and treat the clot, and as a result of the doctor's negligence, the woman died three days later. The lawsuit seeks damages including lost future wages, as well as pain and suffering.

The first step in receiving appropriate care and treatment is securing the right diagnosis. A missed diagnosis – or a failed diagnosis – can have devastating consequences for an individual. Misdiagnoses may lead to a condition worsening, decrease a patient's chances of a complete recovery or in the worst case, lead to a wrongful death. As a result, the failure to diagnose a condition is one of the leading causes of medical malpractice throughout the country.

In this instance, the trial is predicted to last a month. For more information or if you believe that you or a loved one has not received the appropriate care, please contact the experienced San Diego failure to diagnose lawyers at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP for an immediate consultation.
