Evidence Required to Win a Medical Malpractice Claim for Misdiagnosis

When a doctor gives you a misdiagnosis after assessing your illness or condition, you may potentially have a claim for medical malpractice. Succeeding on this type of claim requires you to prove that a doctor-patient relationship did in fact exist. You must also show that the doctor did not treat you in the same manner as a doctor with similar skill and under similar circumstances would have. After proving each of these factors, you are ultimately tasked with proving that the negligent misdiagnosis resulted in harm or injury.

As you pursue your medical malpractice claim following a wrongful diagnosis, carefully consider the type of evidence that you should gather to help support your requests. It is very important that you use evidence to demonstrate that the misdiagnosis caused you harm. Examples of the evidence that you should be looking for include the following:

  1. Evidence that the misdiagnosis caused your injury or condition to worsen in a manner that exceeds how much it would have worsened had you been properly diagnosed.
  2. Evidence that the misdiagnosis had a harmful impact on your treatment.
  3. Evidence that you suffer anxiety, medical problems, and expenses as a direct result of the misdiagnosis.

Suffering from a doctor’s negligent misdiagnosis can have a significant impact on your overall health and well being.
