Philadelphia Lawyers Addressing Failure to Diagnose and Misdiagnosis
Doctors attend schools for many years and then fulfill residency requirements before practicing medicine on their own. Their schooling and the practical application of their knowledge in residencies ensure that they see many different patients with a wide range of conditions and that they learn the steps to take to diagnose and treat those conditions. When a doctor misdiagnoses or fails to diagnose a condition, our trust in a physician’s experience, judgment and skills are irrevocably shaken.
This may be a rare occurrence, but when a disease that a doctor should have diagnosed and treated early progresses into a more serious condition and compromises the patient’s health, the victim has the right to pursue compensation with the help of an experienced lawyer.
Extensive Experience Handling Misdiagnosis Claims
At Cherry Injury Law, our lawyers have decades of experience representing the victims of medical professionals who place their patients’ lives in danger by improperly diagnosing a disease. If a doctor makes a misdiagnosis and prescribes treatment for the wrong condition while another disease or other type of serious condition goes untreated, the doctor may be held liable for medical malpractice.
What Medical Condition Have You Been Diagnosed With?
Our attorneys handle cases involving:
- Misdiagnosis of cancer
- Misdiagnosis of heart attacks
- Misdiagnosis of strokes
- Misdiagnosis of pulmonary embolism
- Misdiagnosis of infections
These are all conditions where days, even hours, can make a dramatic difference. No amount of money can replace one’s health or a diminished life that resulted from delay in treatment. Nevertheless, we may be able to recover damages to pay unnecessary medical bills, ongoing medical costs, hospice care and other expenses. If you believe that your physician failed to diagnose or misdiagnosed a medical condition for you or an immediate family member, we can advise you on your legal options and provide guidance through the legal process.
