Justice For Those Injured By A Failure To Diagnose/Misdiagnosis
For medical care to be effective, it must be timely. When there is a failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of a medical condition such as cancer, heart attack or stroke, it exacerbates the severity of that condition. Any treatment will either not address the actual condition or will be too late to actually help.
`Diagnosing medical conditions is the first step in effective medical care. All other steps come afterward. If a doctor cannot succeed in that first step, the reality is that the patient is being placed at risk by that failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis.
If you were not given proper medical care because a doctor failed to diagnose a medical condition properly, you deserve to be compensated for any injuries caused by the delay in treatment.
Tracking Down The Right Evidence
These cases often require skilled investigations to uncover evidence that shows that the doctor should have arrived at a particular diagnosis at a particular time. We work with other medical experts to help understand how X-rays and other evidence should have led to a proper diagnosis. We also can show how the failed diagnosis made your injuries worse.
