Seeking Compensation for the Harm Done by Delayed Diagnosis

Physicians are highly trained professionals, and a major part of their job is diagnosing illnesses based on their patients' symptoms, test results and other information. While an accurate diagnosis is never guaranteed, doctors are required to at least make reasonable efforts.

Our firm represents clients who have been harmed because doctors misdiagnosed or failed to diagnose their illnesses. The following are some of the major types of cases that we handle:

  • Cancer misdiagnosis: Any amount of delay or error in the diagnosis of any type of cancer can do significant damage to a patient's prospects for full recovery.
  • Heart attack misdiagnosis: When someone has the warning signs of a heart attack, doctors should recognize those signs and move quickly to provide appropriate care.
  • Stroke misdiagnosis: Doctors and other medical professionals have the training to identify the symptoms of stroke and can often be held accountable for failing to do so.
  • Radiological misdiagnosis: Radiologists are legally responsible for following the standards of their profession and evaluating test results with a high degree of care.
  • Spine injury misdiagnosis: Any delay in the diagnosis of a spine injury could cause a patient to develop serious physical and neurological problems.
  • Misdiagnosis of infections: An untreated infection can become extremely dangerous. Doctors and other health care providers need to be alert whenever a patient is at risk.

If your condition has gotten worse because a doctor did not diagnose what was wrong with you in time to treat it effectively, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your options. We will not charge you any fees unless we help you obtain compensation.
