Failure to Diagnose Attorney
Regardless of the medical professional who is at fault, a misdiagnosis or the failure to diagnose a serious illness can be devastating to a patient. One of the most common medical mistakes in our society today is the misdiagnosis of symptoms or the failure to diagnose a specific medical condition. We entrust medical professionals to recognize warning signs and symptoms and come up with an appropriate treatment plan in order to ensure our overall health and well-being. When this does not happen, it could result in catastrophic injury or loss of life. If your doctor or nurse fails to diagnose your condition and, as a result, your condition worsens or you suffer additional injuries, you may be able to hold them responsible for their actions and seek legal recourse. A wide range of healthcare providers can be held liable for their actions, including doctors, oncologists, orthodontists, optometrists, pediatricians, dentists, and any other physicians. If you or a loved one has suffered an additional injury, worsened condition, or death as a result of a medical professional’s failure to diagnose, please contact an experienced personal injury attorney at one of our convenient locations in Beverly Hills, CA or Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, or Brownsville, TX.
Types of Failure to Diagnose Cases
In order to recover damages for your failure to diagnose claim, one of our experienced personal injury attorneys will file a negligence lawsuit against the person in question. A recent study conducted by Johns Hopkins patient safety experts uncovered that more than 40,000 acutely ill patients die each year in the United States as a result of failure to diagnose a serious medical condition. Furthermore, infections and vascular conditions, such as heart attack and stroke, accounted for more than 75 percent of those fatal errors. Other common types of medical misdiagnosis and failures to diagnose include the following:
- Misdiagnosis of cancer
- Stroke misdiagnosis
- Misdiagnosis of heart attack
- Infection misdiagnosis
The medical malpractice attorneys at Rad Law Firm will be able to review the circumstances surrounding your case and determine if you and your family may be entitled to compensation.
