Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious condition can have grave consequences, including irreversible harm, or death. If you now face prolonged medical treatments, surgery that could have been avoided, disability or a terminal prognosis because a doctor misdiagnosed your condition, talk to a knowledgeable and accomplished medical malpractice attorney.Besides contacting an attorney, you will want to take other steps to protect yourself, such as:
- Gather all your medical records to date about your condition.
- Keep detailed notes about what happened, when it happened, who was involved.
- Keep a log about your symptoms.
- Follow current doctors’ orders as closely as you can.
