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.

Immobile ends drought with 2 goals to help Lazio beat Verona

Feb 21, 2018

ROME — Ciro Immobile boosted his bid for Serie A's top goalscorer award with another two goals as Lazio beat relegation-threatened Hellas Verona 2-0 on Monday. Immobile, who won the prize with Torino in 2014, took his tally to 22 for the season, four more than closest challenger Mauro Icardi of Inter Milan. Lazio ended a three-match losing run and moved into fourth spot, a point above fifth-placed Inter Milan and one behind Roma. It was also an end to Immobile's goalscoring drought, with his first goal since Jan. 6. "I am happy," Immobile said. "Fourty-four days without scoring a...

Juve win is costly with Higuain, Bernardeschi injuries

Feb 21, 2018

ROME — Juventus' 1-0 derby win over Torino came at a high cost with both prized striker Gonzalo Higuain and his replacement, Federico Bernardeschi, coming off with injuries. The status of each player will be big concerns for Juventus' pursuit of a seventh straight Serie A title as well as the return leg of the Champions League last 16 against Tottenham. Higuain was left grimacing on the pitch three minutes in after making contact near the endline with Torino goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu, who broke up a Juventus chance. After staying on for another 10 minutes, Higuain exited and was replaced...

More wonder from Under: Turkey winger fires Roma to win

Feb 21, 2018

ROME — Cengiz Under scored his fourth goal in three matches and Roma won at Udinese 2-0 for its third straight win in Serie A on Saturday. Roma moved into third place, two points ahead of Inter Milan, before Inter's match at Genoa later. "We're getting back on track to where we were in the first half of the season," Perotti said. Roma went ahead when Under unleashed a powerful, rising shot from beyond the area in the 70th. Diego Perotti sealed the victory in the 90th with an angled effort after Udinese gave the ball away near midfield. Under...

'Mission accomplished' as Napoli nears Europa League exit

Feb 21, 2018

ROME — "Mission accomplished," read the headline in the Gazzetta dello Sport on Friday. It perfectly captured the sentiment surrounding Serie A team Napoli's 3-1 loss to visiting Leipzig in the first leg of the Europa League's last 32. It's a matchup that the Serie A leader is showing no interest in winning. On course for its first Italian league title in nearly three decades, Napoli is making it abundantly clear that it would prefer to be eliminated from Europe's second-tier competition and dedicate all of its energy to Serie A. "This squad is still behind in terms of maturity,...

Gattuso: AC Milan is not like Brad Pitt, we're ugly

Feb 21, 2018

MILAN — AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso is never going to draw comparisons with Brad Pitt — and he doesn't want his team to either. The bearded Gattuso is getting compliments as a coach as his rejuvenated Milan has climbed up to seventh on the table, sparking talk it could still sneak into the Champions League. "We're not even in the Europa League because Sampdoria is ahead of us in the standings," Gattuso says. "We're taking it day by day and let's not forget how we were two months ago. "We're not Brad Pitt, we have to continue being as...
