Many people think that in order to have a medical malpractice case your doctor or other medical professional must have actively made a mistake, like operating on the wrong limb. But not all medical malpractices cases arise from such obvious mistakes.
A significant portion of medical malpractice in Connecticut and across the country is due to delayed diagnosis of an illness. With many illnesses, such as cancer, a delayed diagnosis of even a few weeks can affect your ability to fight the disease.
Not every delay in diagnosis amounts to malpractice. A doctor can only work with the information he or she is provided, but when they have all the information to make a correct diagnosis and fail to, they are causing harm to you and your family.
An experienced medical malpractice attorney can help you determine whether your case is actionable and whether you should pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit.
