Were Crucial Symptoms Misinterpreted?
While not every illness is readily identifiable, doctors are responsible for exploring all possible options to determine a correct diagnosis so they can treat sick patients in a timely manner. A failure to diagnose due to carelessness or negligence can limit a patient’s ability to obtain proper treatment once the diagnosis is eventually made.
Medical Misdiagnoses Can Limit Available Treatments
At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Cariglia, P.C., we represent victims of all types of medical malpractice, including a failure to diagnose serious conditions due to:
- A failure to order the right diagnostic tests given the patient’s symptoms
- A failure to correctly read test results
- A failure to communicate test results and their implications to the patient
- Other preventable medical errors
These situations can lead to further conditions and limit the treatments that may be available once your condition is correctly diagnosed.
If you or a loved one has suffered an advanced illness or injury due to a physician’s failure to diagnose due to negligent care, it is time to speak with a Massachusetts medical misdiagnosis attorney. Email us or call now at 866-491-6561.
Get Experienced Representation In Failure To Diagnose Cases
Not every firm handles medical error lawsuits. We do. With more than 50 years of experience serving clients in this area for all types of matters related to personal injury, our lawyers have earned a reputation for providing the aggressive, supportive representation clients need to get results.
All medical malpractice claims must first be submitted to a medical tribunal for review to determine whether a standard level of care was violated. As a part of our defense, we will have your medical records reviewed by an independent physician to provide an expert opinion on the conduct of your treating physician. Once a determination is made, we will pursue maximum compensation on your behalf through aggressive settlement negotiation or litigation if necessary.
