Diagnosis errors can cause a number of patients more injuries since their actual conditions are not being treated.

There has been a case in which misdiagnosis of Lyme disease caused more harm to the patient.

Diagnosis errors can be devastating physically and financially

When an Illinois resident goes to the hospital, he or she expects that the medical staff will be able to determine what is wrong and provide a course of treatment that will heal and/or cure the ailment. However, in some cases, physicians make diagnosis errors, which can at best delay the right treatment, and at worst, cause permanent or fatal consequences. If you suffered a permanent injury due to a misdiagnosis -- or have a family member that died as a result -- a medical malpractice claim could provide some relief for the financial burdens that accompany such a tragedy.
