Las Vegas Lawyers Taking Action In Failure To Diagnose Claims

When it comes to a correct medical diagnosis, time is frequently of the utmost importance. It is essential that doctors and other health care providers perform the appropriate diagnostic studies in a timely fashion and follow up on the results. Hospitals and medical laboratories must accurately and timely relay the results of diagnostic studies to the treating doctor. Once an accurate diagnosis is made, treatment must begin without undue delay. The longer a health care provider waits to treat an illness or injury, the more difficult it may become for the patient to fully recover.

Unfortunately, sometimes even when you suspect that something is wrong and promptly see a doctor about it, you don't get the treatment you need right away. The doctor may misdiagnose you or advise you there is nothing wrong. A delayed diagnosis can result in serious damage to your health and even cost you your life.
