Failure to Diagnose Effects
Failure to diagnose can lead to the worsening of a medical condition that was otherwise treatable. All too often, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis leads to wrongful death. In either case, it is important to have an experienced medical malpractice attorney protecting your interests.
We handle a wide range of misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis cases, including:
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Failure to diagnose heart disease
- Failure to diagnose stroke
- Failure to diagnose deep vein thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism
- Child infections
- Misdiagnosis of brain aneurysm
- Misdiagnosis of osteomyelitis
- Misdiagnosis of sepsis
Our lawyers consult with experts who help us determine if a failure to diagnose occurred and who was at fault. In some cases, doctors fail to follow up on warning signs on X-rays and other test results. Sometimes, doctors simply fail to listen to their patients. Other times, your doctor relies upon a test result that was incorrectly interpreted by another medical professional. Whatever led to your injury, we are here to stand up for your rights and pursue fair and just compensation for the losses you have suffered.
Our attorneys do this work because we care about our clients and a just verdict or settlement will make a positive difference in their lives.
