may worsen, which could eventually lead to death. Unfortunately, the majority of

injury, illness or medical condition.

injury or illness due to a doctor’s misdiagnosis, I can provide you with
aggressive and customized legal representation. As an experienced Anchorage
medical malpractice attorney, I’m dedicated to making sure you recover
the maximum amount of your compensation.

How to Prove Medical Malpractice Due to Misdiagnosis
In Alaska, the law doesn’t hold doctors, physicians and surgeons
legally accountable for their diagnostic errors. However, patients typically
must prove three aspects in order to be successful in a medical malpractice
lawsuit based on misdiagnosis. While misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
is not sufficient enough to be considered negligence, it’s imperative
to determine whether the doctor acted in a competent manner.
The following must be proven in order to properly file a medical malpractice claim:
- A doctor-patient relationship did exist
- The doctor’s actions were negligent due to the lack of skillfulness
- The doctor’s negligent actions directly caused injury to the patient
