In order to bring a misdiagnosis case, you must demonstrate that your doctor acted negligently. This requires that you show that a doctor had a duty to ensure your health and safety and that they breached that duty, causing your injuries.
Your injuries must have caused you damage physically, emotionally or financially. Simply showing that your doctor failed to diagnose a particular medical condition does not guarantee success.
In any given situation, doctors are expected to act within accepted standards of care. This means that they must provide a level of care that is equal to that which a reasonable medical professional with similar experience in the same area of practice would have given under similar circumstances. If their care falls below this level, they may be held liable for medical malpractice.
