Every year, over 225,000 individuals die from medical errors. It is a common misconception that the majority of medical malpractice lawsuits arise because of mistakes in the operating room. In fact, most medical malpractice cases are the result of misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, diagnostic error, or the failure by hospital staff to follow doctors’ prescriptions or instructions. Unfortunately, such errors can carry enormous consequences, for example, if an eye doctor fails to recognize the symptoms of glaucoma, blindness can set in.

Diminished Quality of Life
A delayed or misdiagnosed heart attack, or appendicitis, can have immediate and catastrophic consequences. However, with regard to a disease such as cancer, a delayed or incorrect diagnosis often leads to a much poorer prognosis, and limited treatment options, once the disease is finally discovered. If such an event occurs, the result may be a diminished quality of life and an increased chance of remission.
Responsible parties may include doctors, nurses, hospitals, physical therapists, pharmacists, chiropractors, and podiatrists.
