Failed/Erroneous Diagnosis And Treatment

Unfortunately, negligent doctors often fail to treat a medical condition is when they "dismiss" the presenting symptoms as temporary, minor, or otherwise not worthy of treatment. Frequently, this situation results the condition or injury worsening, causing further harm.

Erroneous treatment is most likely to occur as the result of medical misdiagnosis - when a physician fails to diagnose a medical condition correctly, the results can be devastating to the patient. However, a physician who has correctly diagnosed a disease or medical condition may nonetheless fail to properly treat it.

Other times, medical negligence is the result of a physician attempting a new or unconventional treatment that fails, when in fact a more conventional treatment would have been successful.
