For Texans and people across the nation, being subjected to misdiagnosed cancer can lead to disaster. This is particularly egregious if it is a military veteran who is victimized by a misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose and it leads to delayed treatment and even death.

A patient goes to a doctor with the expectation that they will come to an accurate diagnosis and formulate an effective plan of treatment. However, for Texans and people across the U.S., the reality is not that simple. There are times when the failure to diagnose can lead to delayed treatment, the spread of disease, a condition growing worse and even escalating to the point where the patient dies. Research into the frequency with which people are misdiagnosed is troublesome, particularly at a time when diagnostic techniques should be getting better with new innovations.
Visiting a medical professional and being misdiagnosed is a dangerous issue that is far too common.

Texans who seek treatment for themselves or a loved one at a medical facility will be under the impression that they are getting the best care possible and mistakes will not be made.

A recent study has shown that when medical mistakes are made and there are negative reactions to treatment in children, they are frequently omitted from the hospital records. This is important to remember if the condition worsens and it is necessary to pursue a legal filing.
