Failure to Diagnose Meningitis

If you or a loved one suffered from meningitis that was misdiagnosed or treated improperly by your doctor or hospital medical team, you have the legal right to sue for medical negligence. Meningitis is a serious, often fatal condition that is treatable if diagnosed and treated in time. Every year, thousands of Americans check into their local emergency room or doctor with flu-like symptoms, only to be sent home with orders to rest and drink fluids. When the meningitis symptoms worsen, the delayed diagnosis results in needing the most radical treatment and, in severe cases, death.
