Misdiagnosis / Delayed Diagnosis

When physicians and other health care professionals fail to identify the obvious warning signs of a serious condition, catastrophic injuries and even wrongful death may occur. Because medical misdiagnosis cases can be serious and complex, it is important to consult with an experienced legal professional who can research and become familiar with all aspects of your case and advise you appropriately.
Although it seems that these instances should be avoided, overcrowded emergency rooms, staff members working long hours, and understaffed medical facilities make these unfortunate events a frequent reality.
When any medical facility employee’s negligence results in a misdiagnosis/delayed diagnosis of a condition, the victim needs a medical negligence attorney to investigate the circumstances of their potential case and seek compensation for damages including:

  • Pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life
  • Medical bills
  • Loss of earnings
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Funeral expenses if the misdiagnosis/delayed diagnosis resulted in a loved one’s wrongful death.
