Identifying the most common types of medical negligence

The key to effectively treating many kinds of serious injuries and medical conditions is often early diagnosis. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of a disease in a timely manner not only allows for prompt intervention but also goes a long way to prevent the condition in question from progressing. Unfortunately, though, medical negligence on the part of trained physicians is known to prevent many patients from receiving life-saving treatments. If you or a loved one is now forced to confront the consequences of a delayed or failed diagnosis, it is important for you to understand your legal rights and options. That is why the attorneys at Cok Kinzler, P.L.L.P., are committed to advocating on behalf of our clients and medical malpractice victims.

Some physicians have expressed concern that misdiagnosis in the initial stages of the disease is possible. According to the Annals of Internal Medicine, physicians should familiarize themselves with the symptoms of measles and keep a close eye on any patients exhibiting symptoms that might be potential cases. Many younger physicians have never seen the disease.
