Being given the wrong diagnosis can have devastating effects on a person's life.

We are committed to providing thorough medical malpractice representation to clients who have received the wrong diagnosis of an illness, resulting in long-term medical effects. Below are just some of the types of wrong diagnosis situations that we confidently handle.

Misdiagnosis of Cancer

Though a cancer diagnosis is no longer a guaranteed death sentence, failing to properly and timely diagnose cancer can lead to the death of the patient. The proper diagnosis could have saved a life. We are dedicated to helping clients understand their rights as patients when they have received the misdiagnosis of cancer. This can include the diagnosis of the wrong type of cancer, the diagnosis of cancer when the condition is actually not cancer, and the failure to diagnose cancer when cancer is present.

Failure to Diagnose

Closely related to the misdiagnosis of a disease or illness is the failure to diagnose. These cases often have the same devastating effects and can lead to a more immediate death if the failure to diagnose is related to a stroke or heart attack. Many failure-to-diagnose cases stem from understaffed and overutilized emergency rooms. A medical emergency requires special attention from medical staff in order to see that the situation is properly handled. However, due to the confusion and chaos that often exists in an emergency facility, a patient may suffer and be injured as a result.
