You Always Have the Right to a Second Opinion

Back in the old days when we were living in small pioneer towns with a single doctor you had to take their word for all your ailments. Today with hospitals nearly everywhere and mega-mart-style medical buildings, there are dozens of doctors you can seek diagnosis and treatment from.

Of course, not all doctors are alike, just like all medical malpractice attorneys are also unique. Because doctors vary in experience, education and skill, you should never have to take a single doctor's opinion as the final word in your health and well being. If you are ever wary of the diagnosis a doctor gives you, you have every right to seek another opinion on your condition.

I
f you have been diagnosed and are undergoing treatment that does not seem to be helping, or the condition is getting worse, you should see that as a red flag. Even if your doctor persists that their treatment theory will eventually work, or things will get better, don't feel like you are stuck with that as an answer.

Many medical malpractice claims have been discovered when a patient seeks a second opinion after getting fed up with their first answer.
They come to find out that their original doctor misdiagnosed their condition, leaving them to become further ill while undergoing unnecessary treatment for another condition.

Misdiagnosis of a condition and symptoms is a double-dangerous situation. Your true condition is left untreated while you undergo the wrong treatment for another ailment. The additional treatment also comes with extra costs, and can be harmful to your existing conditions. These are all factors you should not have to deal with, and a medical malpractice claim may be necessary to rectify these injustices.
