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.

Post-Ronaldo Real Madrid gets 1st test in UEFA Super Cup

Aug 14, 2018

TALLINN, Estonia — Following the departures of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid gets its first test against crosstown rival Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup. So far, Madrid hasn't resorted to a "galacticos" spending spree to bring in marquee names at astronomical prices. Coach Julen Lopetegui seems to be relying on the talent already at his disposal and a new tactical system. The club, though, has made a few significant purchases, including goalkeeper Thibault Courtois from Chelsea. Now, the team that was built around Ronaldo and which has won three straight Champions League titles comes up against...

Aug 14, 2018

MILAN — The shortened transfer window in the Italian league will close on Friday, the day before the season starts. Here is the pick of the signings so far: CRISTIANO RONALDO (Juventus) In the "swoop of the century," Cristiano Ronaldo moved from Real Madrid to Juventus in a Serie A record 112 million euro ($131.5 million) deal.

Ronaldo makes Juventus fans wait only 8 minutes for 1st goal

Aug 14, 2018

VILLAR PEROSA, Italy — Cristiano Ronaldo made Juventus fans wait only eight minutes before scoring his first goal for the club in a traditional pre-season friendly against the team's "B'' side on Sunday. Ronaldo finished with his usual confidence and poise after latching onto a looping pass over the midfield from attacking midfelder Federico Bernardeschi. Ronaldo took one touch to cushion the ball and then casually thumped it into the left corner. Ten minutes later, he pressured Riccardo Capellini into an own-goal to make it 2-0 to the Bianconero, the name given to Juventus because of its famed white-and-black jersey....

ROME — Newly promoted Serie A team Parma saw its five-point deduction expunged on appeal on Thursday, while forward Emanuele Calaio had a two-year ban reduced to less than five months, in an attempted match-fixing case.
