Diagnosis-related errors are the leading cause of medical malpractice claims associated with death and disability. Those that occur while a person is in a hospital are more likely to be fatal than out-patient cases. The number of misdiagnosis-related claims that cause preventable, permanent damage or death is estimated to be as high as 160,000 each year. Misdiagnosis claims account for over one-third of medical malpractice payouts.
