My doctor didn't diagnose my condition. Do I have a lawsuit?

Like most things in the law, it depends. First, you do not have a lawsuit simply because the doctor missed the diagnosis. You have a claim only if your condition was such that a reasonably careful physician would have made the diagnosis. Second, you have to prove that you suffered some harm because of the missed diagnosis.
