Misdiagnosis And Failure To Diagnose
When you go to a doctor, we are bringing our trust with us. We rely on medical professionals to provide the right diagnosis and treatment plan for our health condition. When a doctor makes a mistake that causes delayed treatment or improper medications, the results can be disastrous and even fatal.
Even the most knowledgeable, well-trained and conscientious doctors can make a wrong diagnosis. But when a physician fails to follow proper standards of care and misses a diagnosis of a serious condition like cancer, stroke, heart attack, cardiac infection, strep or another serious or life-threatening condition, you have the right to seek full and fair compensation for damages.

Complex Cases Require Experienced Legal Representation
There are many factors that come into play in cases of failure to diagnose cancer and other serious medical conditions. There are many individuals who may be to blame. Did the radiologist fail to note a shadow on an X-ray or MRI? Did a treating physician fail to conduct the proper differential diagnosis? Did a nurse or intern fail to ask crucial questions about family history of cancer, heart attack or stroke? What difference did the misdiagnosis make in the patient’s prognosis or quality of life?
