Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis of Illness
Medical technology has made it possible to detect medical conditions early on, giving patients a chance to treat conditions that were once incurable. When warning signs of illness exist, doctors should order diagnostic tests such as X-rays, MRIs, ultrasounds and mammograms to determine whether or not the patient has a serious medical condition.
Commonly misdiagnosed illnesses are:
Oftentimes, misdiagnosis is simply a case of a doctor not listening to the patient or not taking the patient’s complaints seriously. A common example of misdiagnosis is when a patient comes to the doctor’s office with chest pain and the doctor diagnoses the ailment as indigestion when the pain is really the early signs of a heart attack.
Our attorneys thoroughly approach misdiagnosis cases, working to identify at what point in the course of treatment the patient showed signs of illness and whether or not those symptoms were recognized and followed up on. We will work aggressively and proactively on your behalf to help you pursue fair and just compensation for your losses.
