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.

May 26, 2018

KIEV, Ukraine — Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos criticized UEFA's decision to hold the Champions League final in Kiev, as fans continue to struggle with travel problems. The Ukrainian capital has failed to cope with the influx of fans from around the world ahead of Saturday's game, with its two airports running out of capacity and hotel prices soaring to astronomical levels.

BARDONECCHIA, Italy — Chris Froome produced one of the great performances of his career, attacking alone on a gravel road up a grueling climb to win the 19th stage of the Giro d'Italia on Friday and claim the overall leader's pink jersey. The four-time Tour de France champion launched his solo attack up the three-week race's highest climb with 80 kilometers (50 miles) to go and rode clear amid banks of snow above the tree line. Pedaling furiously, Froome continuously increased his advantage over two more Alpine ascents to finish three minutes ahead of his closest challenger. The victory put...

Fasting or not, Klopp says Salah 'full of power'

May 26, 2018

KIEV, Ukraine — Juergen Klopp wouldn't reveal if Mohamed Salah is fasting for Ramadan while preparing for the Champions League final. But either way, Liverpool's star forward is "full of power," his coach said on Friday on the eve of club football's biggest game. "Religion is private how I understand it, so nothing to say about that, but all fine," Klopp said on Salah and Ramadan, adding that the Egyptian is "full of power and whatever you need to be the day before a final." During Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. That could possibly...

Lyon beats Wolfsburg 4-1 to win Women's Champions League

May 26, 2018

KIEV, Ukraine — Lyon scored three goals in five minutes to beat Wolfsburg 4-1 in extra time and win the Women's Champions League for the third year running on Thursday. After an often-quiet 90 minutes, the final roared into life in extra time when Wolfsburg's Pernille Harder scored in the 93rd minute with a low shot from distance as Lyon goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi — hurt in an earlier collision — was slow to react. However, Wolfsburg collapsed when midfielder Alexandra Popp was sent off when she picked up her second booking for a clumsy challenge. Lyon pulled level with Amandine...
