Failed / Delayed Diagnosis
When those administering healthcare don’t spend enough time with their patients, failing to ask the right questions, a delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose often occur. Due to this negligence, often one of the follow situations occur:
- Tests Were Improperly Performed
- Test Conclusions Were Recorded Incorrectly or Completely Ignored
- Abnormal Results Were Ignored
- The Patient’s Full Medical Records Were Not Developed
- Patient Complaints were Negatively Handled
- Nurses Did Not Pay Close Attention to the Patient’s Symptoms
- Key Details of the Patient’s Medical History Were Not Properly Evaluated
- Necessary Diagnostics Tests Were Not Ordered
- Additional Tests Were Not Ordered
Limits Regarding When You Can File a Medical Malpractice Claim
Because Medical Malpractice suits are such complicated matters, depending on your situation, there may be a statute of limitation or time limit to file your case. Generally, you have about a year from the moment you suspect you were the victim of medical negligence. Additionally, there is a different set of limits for minors and those in other circumstances. In some situations, a claim must be filed within six months of when the incident occurred.
Failure to meet these time limits can mean loss of compensation that is rightfully yours. Don’t delay. Contact our Sacramento attorneys today.
