How to Prove Negligence
In order to prove that misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose resulted in further injury, further illness, or death, you must establish that a patient-doctor relationship existed, the doctor was negligent, and that the doctor’s negligence was the direct cause of the patient’s injury, illness, or death. While any condition has the potential to be improperly diagnosed by a negligent healthcare provider, there are some conditions that are more frequently misdiagnosed than others.
- Most common conditions that are misdiagnosed include the following:
- Heart attack
- Clogged arteries
