Can you sue a doctor for wrong diagnosis

  • What happens if doctor gives wrong diagnosis?

If a doctor fails to make an accurate and timely diagnosis of a harmful medical condition, a patient might be able to pursue a legal remedy by filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

  • Is a misdiagnosis malpractice?

Failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis of an illness or injury are the basis of many medical malpractice lawsuits. Misdiagnosis on its own is not necessarily medical malpractice, and not all diagnostic errors give rise to a successful lawsuit. Even highly experienced and competent doctors make diagnostic errors.

  • How common is misdiagnosis?
Each year in the U.S., over 12 million adults who seek outpatient medical care receive a misdiagnosis, according to a recent study by BMJ Quality & Safety. That translates to about 5 percent of adults, or 1 out of 20 adult patients.
