Misdiagnosis Attorney

We demand justice for you

We trust medical professionals to diagnose medical issues and provide the proper medical care. Unfortunately, some doctors, nurses or other health care professionals make mistakes right from the start and misdiagnose what’s wrong with us.

Getting treated for the wrong disease can have harmful side effects. Not having some conditions treated in time can make matters much worse. It can lead to adverse health outcomes or even unnecessary deaths.

Common medical misdiagnosis injuries

Millions of people are misdiagnosed every year, according to numerous studies. So why is this problem so widespread? Some of the problem can be attributed to a fragmented medical system or simple human errors. Data from tests performed at one facility may not be accurately conveyed to doctors at another facility.

Other times, misdiagnosis errors occur because doctors make up their minds about a patient’s condition without gathering enough evidence or running adequate tests. In either case, a wrong or missing diagnosis often leads to the failure to treat serious medical conditions.

Common injuries or illnesses that are misdiagnosed include:

  • Concussion or head injury misdiagnosis
  • Cancer misdiagnosis
  • Broken bone not diagnosed
  • Lyme disease misdiagnosis

Count on us when it matters most

The biggest obstacle people face in misdiagnosis cases often involves doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who refuse to admit they did anything wrong. Their refusal to admit negligence or malpractice can have a significant impact on your case. That’s because many insurance companies use such evidence as a reason to reduce or outright deny your injury claim.

That’s not right. That’s why we take such cases so seriously at our law firm. We believe medical professionals should be held accountable for their actions. And just as important, you should not have to pay for their mistakes.

The financial impact of a misdiagnosis case can add up to thousands or even millions of dollars. As your attorney, we will demand maximum compensation for you and your family. And if the party responsible for compensating you refuses to negotiate, we’re prepared to take them to court on your behalf.
