Medical Malpractice

Misdiagnosis Malpractice

Experiencing a medical misdiagnosis can break your trust in the health care system, whether it resulted in an injury for yourself or the death of a loved one. Medical professionals, faulty lab results, or improper testing can fail to meet the standards of care. Improper care, delayed treatment, or no treatment often leads to serious complications beyond the patient’s original health challenges.

All illnesses should be properly diagnosed and treated effectively and timely. When a healthcare provider fails to properly diagnose a patient, typically the cause is a delay to treat or complete failure to treat. Those failures most often lead to a poor outcome. Health care providers need to be held accountable.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?

In Michigan, you generally have two years to file a medical malpractice suit. There are important exceptions to this general rule. We will help you sort this out.

What do I need to prove in a misdiagnosis case?

Medical malpractice cases involve requirements including proof of an established provider-patient relationship, that the healthcare provider failed to meet the standards of care, and that the error caused significant damages.

Specifically for a misdiagnosis case, you also need to provide proof of the following to move forward with a case:

  • That the illness or injury would not have been misdiagnosed by another doctor or healthcare provider with the same or similar specialty.
  • That a competent provider would have designated the correct diagnosis when determining possibilities for the injury or illness, but the current provider did not.
  • If the provider gave the correct diagnosis, then you need to prove that they did not perform the right tests to arrive at the diagnosis.

What are the accepted standards of care in Michigan?

Each healthcare provider in Michigan is held to the standard of care to provide treatment that is appropriate under the circumstances. All healthcare providers hold themselves to the standard of being experts, so they should be held accountable for being just that.
