Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?
Symptoms of appendicitis include sharp abdominal pain, nausea, abdominal swelling, fever and constipation. Sometimes these symptoms can be mistaken for the flu or another stomach virus. In order to have a valid legal claim, your doctor must have made clear errors in diagnosis that led to your suffering or harm. Examples of this include:
- Ignoring a symptom, or dismissing it as unimportant
- Failing to conduct a complete medical exam
- Failing to order appropriate tests
- Misdiagnosing your illness despite clear signs that you had appendicitis
