Failure To Diagnose
Many medical conditions require an early and accurate diagnosis to treat. Unfortunately, doctors and medical professionals may incorrectly diagnose serious illnesses or fail to recognize the symptoms of a serious medical condition. A delayed or misdiagnosis can lead to permanent injury, worsening health and even death.
Under the law, doctors are required to provide a certain standard of care when practicing medicine. This includes taking the time to accurately diagnose symptoms expressed in patients.
We help injured patients who were misdiagnosed regarding a variety of medical conditions and illnesses, including:
- Pulmonary embolism
- Heart attack
- Aortic dissection
Cancer is also routinely misdiagnosed. The most common cancer misdiagnoses involve breast cancer, melanoma, colorectal cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and lymphoma.
Misdiagnosis Cases Are Difficult. You Need Experienced Med Mal Attorneys.
If a doctor fails to abide by an accepted standard of care, and you are seriously injured as a result, you may be able to obtain compensation for your injury. Loved ones of patients who passed away because of a failure to diagnose may also recover for the tragic loss of their family member.

We work hard on behalf of injured patients because we know any of us could potentially face similar circumstances to yours if we receive poor medical care. We hold doctors and institutions accountable when they do not act according to the accepted standards of the medical profession.
