A: If you took 100 doctors and related the facts and if 70% or more said their should have been a differential diagnosis including whatever it was, and that he should then have done tests to exclude it. Malpractice cases are very expensive and it's likely that there are problems with your case. However each attorney is different so call some and see what they think.

A: Of course. About half of the medical malpractice lawsuits filed in Maryland are failure to diagnose claims.
