Every year, 12 million adults in the United States are misdiagnosed by doctors. That’s 1 in 20 patients.
In a recent shocking case, Dr. Farid Fata plead guilty to misdiagnosing health patients with cancer. He tortured more than 500 patients with unnecessary chemotherapy treatments and took millions of dollars from the government in false Medicare claims. A few of his patients even died.
If a doctor misdiagnosed you, can you sue?
