If you or a loved one has suffered from a medical misdiagnosis, our personal injury lawyer may be able to earn you compensation from the party at fault. Misdiagnosis can cause serious health complications, or even death. If you think you’re the victim of misdiagnosis due to a medical professional’s negligence, you should seek out legal representation from a personal injury lawyer right away.
What Constitutes a Misdiagnosis?
A medical misdiagnosis encompasses a vast litany of errors that can occur in a medical environment. For instance, a doctor may diagnose a patient with bronchitis, when they actually have lung cancer. Alone, misdiagnosis may not entitle an injured individual to compensation. An attorney will need to provide evidence that the medical staff was negligent and provided a misdiagnosis. Or an attorney will need to prove that the medical staff failed to utilize appropriate testing methods to determine a proper diagnosis. Essentially, if a medical staff member misdiagnoses an illness that might otherwise have been properly diagnosed by a medical staff member with the same specialty, then they are deemed at fault and may owe the personally injured compensation.
If an illness isn’t diagnosed in a timely manner, medical staff may be at fault. Seek representation from a personal injury lawyer if medical staff didn’t deliver a diagnosis promptly. Timeliness is often crucial to remedying an illness or injury, and a delayed diagnosis can result in further pain and suffering, worsened illness, or possibly death. We’ll strive to prove that you’ve been wronged by delays in the diagnosis and treatment of an illness.
