If this has happened to you or a loved one, it is a form of medical malpractice. You may have a case against the doctor or medical institution that misdiagnosed.

Cochran, Jr., she served for 12 years at The Cochran Firm before opening her own practice.
Misdiagnosis can rapidly take a bad situation to a much worse situation. It can tragically lead to the wrongful death of a loved one. Brain injuries may not show obvious symptoms sometimes. The lazy doctor may not take the care or use the tests available to make sure that there is no problem. Misdiagnosing cancer can create much havoc in a person's life either way.
