Lawsuit brought in Texas for failure to diagnose

A medical malpractice claim involving misdiagnosis was recently brought by the victim in Texas. In her lawsuit, the woman asserts that doctors failed to properly evaluate, diagnose and treat her medical condition. The victim further asserts that as a result, she suffered injuries that were serious and disabling injuries, including a resection of a large segment of her gastrointestinal tract. The victim suffered physical harm, pain and suffering and medical expenses as a result of the failure to diagnose. The woman is seeking compensation for the damages she has suffered.

A failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis can be a serious concern for victims because it can lead to a worsened condition. In addition, if a medical condition the patient does not have is being treated, the correct condition the victim is suffering may go untreated and the treatment or medication for the incorrectly diagnosed condition may result in additional harm to the victim. When a victim has been harmed by a failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis resulting in a worsened condition, they may have legal protections to consider.

Medical malpractice legal options can help victims and their families recover compensation for the physical financial and emotional losses associated with medical negligence. We all place a certain amount of trust in our healthcare providers and when that trust has been breached, and harm has resulted, the medical professional may be liable for the damages the victim suffers. Damages can include medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages, as well as other types of damages depending on the circumstances.

It is important for victims of medical malpractice to understand how to protect themselves. The legal process is designed to help victims when they have been harmed by medical malpractice and is a resource victims should be familiar with.
