Failure To Diagnose Disease Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Doctors have spent years studying how to identify and treat diseases, and it is one of the primary reasons we turn to them when we become sick. When a doctor fails to diagnose a patient, the results can be disastrous for their health and their lives. In addition to being unable to treat a disease, which costs them precious time, it keeps a patient from properly planning their future, especially if they are terminally ill. If this has happened to you, you have the right to hold your doctor accountable for their mistake, and we can help.
We at Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, have been fighting for our clients from our Southington office for more than 50 years. In those decades, we have earned a powerful reputation among both our clients and our peers when it comes to providing the best possible outcome for our clients. We have been standing up for clients in need for years, and we are eager to stand up for you as well.
How Doctors Fail To Diagnose
Medical mistakes involving the diagnosis of a health condition can cause serious harm and can even be life-threatening. This needless error can happen in one of several ways:
- The doctor may have overlooked the problem entirely: For example, perhaps you sought treatment for symptoms of a heart attack at an emergency room. The busy, overworked staff may have sent you home after only a cursory examination. Missed diagnosis is especially common in these situations.
- The doctor may have failed to conduct appropriate diagnostic tests: One of the advantages of modern medicine is that technological advances hold the keys to many life-saving diagnoses. Sometimes, however, doctors negligently fail to order the right lab work, X-rays, MRIs or other diagnostic procedures.
- The doctor may have made the wrong diagnosis: An erroneous diagnosis can be just as harmful as no diagnosis at all. In fact, it may lead to unnecessary risk through ineffective courses of treatment.
Any of these situations can amount to medical malpractice. Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, can provide a professional assessment of your legal options and help you pursue the compensation you deserve. Give us a call at 844-367-0314 to request an initial consultation with our team.
