A doctor's error in the diagnosis of injury or illness makes it highly unlikely that the patient will receive the necessary treatment. By the time the physician's mistake is corrected, it might be too late. Our legal team takes these types of medical errors very seriously and feels that negligent medical staff should be held accountable for their actions. We work not only to identify the medical errors that led to a failure to diagnose the symptoms of disease, but also to show how the misdiagnosis resulted in actual harm to the patient.
Even if we can prove negligent misdiagnosis, the defense may try to show that the patient's condition was hopeless, that the cancer was inoperable, or another health problem resulted in death. Meanwhile, you are dealing with a variety of medical bills that are adding up and you deserve compensation to take care of your expenses. With more than 40 years of experience, we have had great success in medical malpractice cases.
While the defense tries to use disprove that the failure to diagnose the condition lead to your illness or disease, we work hard to gather evidence which proves your case. We work with medical experts to develop the evidence necessary to prove both diagnosis errors and their role in the death or disability of a patient.
