Inaccurate Medical Diagnosis Can Prove Fatal

I found on the Georgia Personal Injury Blog a reference to a New York Times article that reveals an alarming trend.  According to the Times’ article, doctors are failing to accurately diagnose medical problems.  The article explains how since the 1930’s doctors, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, have been failing to properly diagnose fatal diseases in a high number of instances.

Failure to properly diagnose is leading to deaths of many Americans, and something needs to be done to stop this alarming, and long-standing, malfeasance on the part of American doctors.

I am a Massachusetts attorney and I do not practice medical malpractice law.  However, if you think you have been the victim of medical malpractice, I strongly encourage you to contact an attorney as soon as possible.
