Legal Remedies After Failure To Properly Diagnose
In order for a medical condition to be treated, it needs to be diagnosed and diagnosed properly. Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious condition can lead to a delay in treatment, and that delay can result in pain and suffering for the victim. Years of life can be lost.

Claims Involving Other Serious Medical Conditions
We also handle claims involving misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose heart attack, stroke and other conditions. Sometimes, these errors take place in the emergency room. Other times, they take place in the doctor’s office by doctors who are being too conservative. When doctors have an indication that a serious medical condition is a possibility, they cannot send patients off with a few pills. The proper testing needs to be done, particularly when a patient’s family history indicates a history of the medical condition in question.
Failure to do proper testing can be considered negligence, but it is not the only form of negligence. In some cases, the proper testing is done, but it is done improperly or the results are not read correctly. The end result is a dangerous delay in treatment that we will hold medical providers accountable for.
