Identifying Cases of Misdiagnosis

Not every case of late-stage discovery is considered malpractice or misdiagnosis. There are some cases where a doctor would not have been able to detect an injury, especially if the patient came in too late.

However, a doctor may be held liable for failing to perform the right tests, asking the right questions, or eliminating possibilities before making a final diagnosis. As a patient, you trust your doctor's ability to make the right determination about your condition. When your case is treated negligently resulting in serious injury, you may be eligible for significant compensation if I can prove your doctor is liable for errors such as failing do tests such as blood work, ignoring symptoms and not doing follow-up exams.

Misdiagnosis or Diagnosis When It Is Too Late

Unfortunately, many of these cases result in wrongful death. A patient who is not diagnosed cannot be treated in time to effectively fight off a disease. If you or someone you love is dying because of a failure to diagnose cancer or another disease, I can help you recover damages and hold all parties responsible.

I am a lawyer who is sensitive to the difficulty of these cases and understands the severe loss faced by your family. It is my priority to get the compensation you need and deserve so that your family can begin to move forward.
