Athletes often get complex injuries. Unfortunately, these injuries can get misdiagnosed if the healthcare provider does not have a definitive understanding of sports medicine.
Sports injuries that are commonly misdiagnosed include:
It is always a smart idea to get a second opinion if you sustain a sports injury. The wrong diagnosis could delay your recovery or result in serious health problems. If you believe that your sports injury was misdiagnosed, contact our office immediately.
A misdiagnosed sports injury can be detrimental to an athlete’s recovery and career. Any time that an injury is not diagnosed as quickly as possible it may result in a delay in treatment. Untreated some injuries may get worse, even becoming life-threatening.
Team physicians, specialists, and other doctors are required to adhere to a reasonable standard of care. When they fail to meet this standard of care resulting in harm to the patient, it may amount to sports injury medical malpractice. It is imperative to discuss a suspected misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis with an attorney as early as possible.
