In a recent interview, leading misdiagnosis malpractice attorney Chip Wagar highlighted the growing epidemic of diagnosis errors.

A 2014 study carried out by the Houston Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Baylor College of Medicine revealed that 12 million Americans – or approximately 1 in 20 patients – are misdiagnosed every year.

When asked to comment, Mr Wagar said, “More worryingly, studies have shown that most Americans will be misdiagnosed in their lifetime. Unfortunately, this trend is not likely to subside soon and causes serious health and financial consequences.”

In 2016, experts from John Hopkins found that 250,000 deaths in the US were caused by an error in diagnosis, making it the third-largest cause of death.

The prevalence of medical misdiagnosis constitutes a serious safety risk to patients as it often has adverse health effects.

“Drugs given to treat a non-existent illness can wreak havoc on the body, leading to dangerous side effects or even death. Prescribed medicine as part of a treatment plan can also exacerbate the existing problems that have gone unnoticed,” Wagar said.

Mr Wagar added that a misdiagnosis and a course of treatment including surgery fail to address the underlying medical issue. This can lead to a delayed diagnosis of serious illnesses that could be treated earlier such as cancer, often causing irreparable physical and emotional harm.

Racking up medical bills is another major problem caused by diagnosis error.

“An error in diagnosing could lead to costly treatments or surgeries. As the patient doesn’t show improvement, these treatments are prolonged, leading to more medical bills and costs,” Wagar explained.

Identifying diagnosis errors, according to Wagar is the first step in recovering lost funds. Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis can be defined as an incorrect identification of a someone’s medical condition by a health care professional, such as a doctor, resulting in loss or injury.

In the event of medical misdiagnosis, Wagar says, the best thing to do is to reach out to an experienced representative.

“An experienced malpractice attorney will know how to prove medical negligence, which will help you recover money lost on medical bills and possibly more for physical and emotional harm done,” Wagar said.

ROME — Gabriele Gravina was elected president of the Italian soccer federation on Monday, bringing an end to a year of uncertainty.

Ronaldo keeps his focus, Juventus struggling to do the same

Oct 22, 2018

MILAN — Despite his off-the-field turmoil, Cristiano Ronaldo is still scoring goals. His teammates, however, let Juventus down. Ronaldo has scored five goals in nine matches, and two in three matches since being accused of rape last month. On Saturday, Ronaldo gave Juventus the lead in the 18th minute at Genoa. Then something odd happened. Normally so calm and collected, the Juventus players were at times haphazard in their passing and Daniel Bessa equalized in the 67th minute as the defense was caught napping. "They capitalized on our loss of concentration," Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. "After starting well, we...

Inter left counting the cost of 1-0 derby win against Milan

Oct 22, 2018

MILAN — Mauro Icardi's stoppage-time header gave Inter Milan a 1-0 win over AC Milan in the city derby on Sunday but it could be left counting the cost of that victory after key midfielder Radja Nainggolan limped off in the first half. Nainggolan hurt his ankle in a crunching tackle with Lucas Biglia in the first half. The Belgian midfielder will undergo tests on Monday but is now a doubt for Wednesday's Champions League match at Barcelona. Forward Ivan Perisic went off in the second half, while midfielder Marcelo Brozovic could also miss the trip to Barcelona, with both...

Ronaldo scores but Juventus' perfect start ended by Genoa

Oct 22, 2018

MILAN — Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to net 400 goals across Europe's top five leagues. It wasn't enough on Saturday to maintain Juventus' perfect start to the season. Ronaldo, who has been accused of rape in a civil lawsuit in the United States, scored in the 1-1 draw against Genoa. It was his fifth Serie A goal in nine matches. Ronaldo has 311 goals in La Liga for Real Madrid, and 84 in the English Premier League for Manchester United. Juventus won all of its previous 10 matches across Serie A and the Champions League. Though Juve's lead...

Cristiano Ronaldo expected to play for Juventus on Saturday

Oct 22, 2018

MILAN — Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Juventus started with a selfie, included a goal in a practice game, and will likely end up with a starring role on Saturday. Ronaldo, who has been accused of rape and is facing a civil lawsuit in the United States, had the weekend off while his Italian team was idle during a break for international matches. Normally the star of his national team, the 33-year-old Ronaldo was left off Portugal's squad for games against Poland and Scotland. The team won both anyway. But he's back now, and is expected to be in the lineup...
