Unlike a personal injury claim, it can be a lot more difficult to prove medical negligence. Additionally, the defendant will likely have a team of malpractice attorneys ready to fight against your claim, so it is important that you have experienced legal representation on your side.Over Diagnosing Lyme DiseaseOne of the more common medical conditions that a doctor may over diagnose is Lyme disease. This disease is caused by a tick that transmits bacteria and it can lead to symptoms which may parallel other medical conditions.Some of the symptoms of Lyme disease include:
- stiff neck;
- muscle pain;
- joint pain; and
- swollen lymph nodes.
When Lyme disease is over diagnosed, it can result in a patient being put on antibiotics for a long period of time. Unnecessarily taking antibiotics can be very harmful and can lead to additional medical issues. This type of incorrect diagnosis not only puts an individual at risk for receiving unnecessary treatment, but the failure to treat their true condition can easily cause additional injury and permanent damage.
