A misdiagnosis often tends to carry dangerous consequences. You need the counselling of New York City medical malpractice lawyers to see that accountability must fall with the medical practitioner who made the call. CBS News’ Ryan Jaslow said this was the case in a study from Ireland that detailed 7,150 medical malpractice suits from several countries, which included 15 misdiagnosis suits against American primary care doctors.
A check of the polled misdiagnosis claims showed that many cases were actually about cancer or heart attacks among adult patients, but the doctors allegedly overlooked the warning signs for both ailments. Missed cancer diagnosis, along with meningitis, was also found in cases of child patients, Jaslow said of the study data.
