Birmingham Wrong Diagnosis Attorneys
Doctors must go through years of training before they are allowed to work independently with patients. They are tested on their knowledge to ensure that they are adequately prepared to diagnose and prescribe a course of treatment for conditions effectively. Sadly, despite such a thorough education, physicians often fail to correctly interpret the diagnostic information that they have and offer the wrong diagnosis to an injured or ill patient.
