You shouldn’t have to wonder. With all that your loved one, your family and you have lost, you shouldn’t have to wonder whether a doctor’s negligence caused it all. Instead, you and your Atlanta medical malpractice attorney should find out for sure.
When is a Dementia Misdiagnosis Malpractice?
Generally, a misdiagnosis is medical malpractice when the doctor who made the diagnosis was negligent. In other words, the doctor who owed the patient a duty of care breached that duty of care by failing to act like a reasonable doctor and the patient suffered harm as a result. If your loved one’s doctor failed to account for all of your loved one’s symptoms, failed to order the proper diagnostic tests given the symptoms your loved one presented or failed to refer your loved one to a specialist, then it is possible that medical malpractice occurred.
