Virginia medical malpractice lawyer Rick Shapiro discusses what is needed to establish a failure to diagnose claim. We receive calls on a regular basis involving a missed cancer diagnosis or a missed diagnosis of another serious health issue. To have a valid claim, there must be sufficient evidence to show that, if it were not for the missed diagnosis, the cancer or other condition could have been prevented or treated at an earlier stage to reduce the damage. In addition, a doctor must review your medical records and sign a Certificate of Merit substantiating the claim.
