A missed diagnosis can have deadly consequences

Despite some incredible advances in medical science there are still some health problems that doctors cannot fix. It is an unfortunate truth that some Houston residents may receive diagnoses that leave them few options for treatment and care. However, thankfully, many individuals who go to their doctors will receive news of their conditions as well as explanations for how to treat and remedy their ailments.

When a doctor assesses a patient's symptoms and runs tests to better understand the problem they may come to a diagnosis of the ailment. A diagnosis gives an ailment a name and with it an accepted course of treatment that should, if properly administer, eradicate the ailment or put it into remission. The success of a treatment will depend on how well it is matched to the condition of the patient; if a doctor misdiagnosis a person, that patient's treatment may be ineffective and result in the patient's worsened condition.

If a doctor fails to diagnose a patient because he does not properly assess the patient or does not follow an accepted course of diagnostic procedure then that doctor may be liable for any injuries the patient suffers due to the doctor's error. A missed diagnosis, failure to diagnose, or erroneous diagnosis cases fall under the area of medical malpractice law and attorneys who include this particular form of personal injury practice in their firms can guide injured victims through the process of protecting their legal rights.

The law firm of Davis & Davis, located in Houston, Texas, offers supportive representation to individuals who have suffered as a result of their doctors' mistakes, errors, and omissions. The attorneys of the firm are available to speak with victims who have questions about their potential medical malpractice cases and to discuss with them their options for pursuing litigation.
