Is Misdiagnosis Common?

It is difficult to obtain statistics about misdiagnosis. The problem is not always detected, and people’s medical information is difficult to obtain. Still, some studies have tried to determine how common this medical problem is, and the results are alarming. Misdiagnosis is one of the most common medical errors, affecting as many as 155 per 1,000 patients in our nation’s hospitals.

The statistics are worse in emergency rooms and intensive care units (ICU), where medical decisions must be made very quickly. The rate of misdiagnosis in these settings may be anywhere between 20% and 40% of admitted patients, according to recent studies.

Seeking Compensation

Misdiagnosis is not only potentially common, it is also a dangerous medical mistake. Patients who have been misdiagnosed may suffer from the side effects of the wrong treatment, in addition to the progression of their illness. It is highly unjust for patient to suffer these kinds of medical complications due to their doctors' errors.

You could be compensated for medical expenses, missed work, pain and suffering, and possibly more.
