Failure To Diagnose Appendicitis Can Have Fatal Consequences
Failure to diagnose appendicitis is a serious medical error that could easily lead to death. When an appendix becomes infected, it needs to be removed immediately. If it is not removed, the infection will continue to grow, eventually causing the organ to burst.
A burst appendix will release poisonous toxins into your bloodstream, causing a painful death from septic shock.
What is even more scary is that misdiagnosis of appendicitis is more likely to occur with children than adults, because children are less likely to recognize the signs of appendicitis.
Medical professionals need to be held accountable in asking the right questions and using the proper diagnostic procedures and tests. The Cleveland appendicitis error attorneys at The Lancione Law Firm pride themselves on doing just that. If you are concerned that a delayed diagnosis of appendicitis caused unnecessary pain and suffering or possibly even the death of your loved one, we are here to help.
