What Is a Failure to Diagnose?

When a healthcare provider fails to diagnose a condition that leads to a patient's injury or death, it’s known as failure to diagnose. Failure to diagnose is one of the most common types of medical malpractice cases. To prove a failure-to-diagnose claim, you will need to show that the healthcare provider failed to properly diagnose a condition that led to your injury or your loved one's death.

Common causes of failure to diagnose:

  • Inexperience
    You may not know that your doctor recently graduated medical school, or they don’t have enough exposure to a particular illness or condition. Inexperienced physicians can order unnecessary tests or treatments. They can also misinterpret test results or overlook important symptoms. 
  • Too little time spent with the patient
    These days, doctors schedule appointments in short time slots. Both patients and physicians feel rushed, and the doctor is often unable to you the time you need. Conversely, patients may forget to bring up all their symptoms in that short window, leading to an incomplete diagnosis. 
  • Failure to conduct diagnostic testing
    Some conditions exhibit typical symptoms, and doctors can usually diagnose these ailments right away. Other health concerns require specialized or more extensive testing. Doctors often look for the quickest answer, and we have been trained to trust their opinions. This dynamic can lead to incomplete or improper diagnoses. 
  • Failure to follow up with the patient
    A failure to follow up can happen for any number of reasons. There may be a lack of communication between healthcare providers or a lack of time or resources. Whatever the cause, when doctors don’t check in, patients can suffer detrimental effects.

What Compensation Is Available in a Failure to Diagnose Case?

You can be compensated for your losses in a failure-to-diagnose case. This can include compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. The exact amount of compensation you will be eligible for will depend on the circumstances of your case.

Compensation in a failure-to-diagnose case can include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages
  • And more

In many cases, a doctor's failure to diagnose a condition can lead to a patient's death. When this happens, surviving family members can be eligible for a wrongful death claim. In a wrongful death claim, surviving family members can be eligible for compensation for their loss. This can include compensation for funeral and burial costs, as well as lost wages and other damages.
