Fighting For Justice And Your Best Interests

What To Do If Your Doctor Failed To Diagnose You Or A Loved One

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with a later stage illness or you have lost a family member to a disease such as cancer, you may be wondering if the doctors could have caught it earlier and prevented your loss. Many people have illnesses misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all. If you believe this may be the case, it is important to speak to a skilled medical malpractice attorney.

We represent individuals and families pursuing personal injury and wrongful death claims stemming from issues such as:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Improperly run tests
  • Failure to recognize the urgency of medical issues
  • Improperly provided diagnostic medications

What Happens When Doctors Act Negligently?

You could be at risk. Sometimes, doctors fail to provide the quality care you are entitled to and may neglect to divulge critical information that you need about your health. If your doctor fails to disclose valuable information about your health that causes you harm, such as pain, high medical bills, loss of earning capability or loss of ability to enjoy life, you are entitled to compensation.

The Impact Of A Missed Cancer Diagnosis

Failure to diagnose any illness can have serious consequences, but a missed cancer diagnosis can be especially terrible. The longer cancer goes without detection, the more time it has to become less treatable and grow into worse stages.

Common reasons for missed diagnoses include unusual test results, failing to run proper tests, misreading signs in a patient, failing to communicate with the patient, lack of experience reading test results and defective testing equipment.

Determining where things went wrong and who is accountable in such cases is complex, but we are here to determine who is liable. By contacting our medical malpractice attorneys, we can review the details of your case, present you with your options and seek the fair and full compensation you deserve for the harm you experienced.
