What are the most common diseases and disorders involved in medical malpractice suits?
A medical malpractice lawsuit can involve any type of disease or disorder, but certain ones are routinely seen. There are a number of factors affecting the frequency of various diseases, disorders, and medical malpractice lawsuits. One factor is how common the disease or disorder is on a whole. A rare condition may be less likely to be accurately diagnosed.
Another factor is the way the disease or disorder presents itself. If it is a disease or disorder that has a number of symptoms which overlaps with other conditions, it may be misdiagnosed for another disease. Some of the most common disease and disorders involved in medical malpractice lawsuits include heart failure, breast cancer, lung cancer and sinonasal diseases.
