Failure to Diagnose a Neurological Disorder
When a neurological condition is undiagnosed or misdiagnosed
Neurology malpractice can occur in medical situations involving neurological disorders like epilepsy as well as cancer, so errors when it comes to neurological diseases of this magnitude are serious and can cause prolonged pain, mental anguish and even death.
If you or a family member has been seriously harmed because of misdiagnosis or a doctor&srquo;s failure to diagnose, you deserve answers, justice and financial compensation. You also need answers and compensation if a neurological disorder or disease was diagnosed correctly but improperly treated by doctors, nurses or hospital staff.
Common causes of neurology negligence include:
- A doctor missing important symptoms that are indicators of neurological disease or cancer
- A doctor diagnosing a less serious disease that shares some of the more common symptoms
- A doctor overlooking serious symptoms to focus on other symptoms first
- A doctor failing to listen to the patient or fully read and examine lab reports
A failure to diagnose or a misdiagnosis can mean the patient does not receive appropriate medications or other treatments. That negligence can cause side effects, long–term damage and death.
