Misdiagnosis and Failure to Diagnose

When doctors fail to diagnose health problems or diagnose them incorrectly, patients lose the opportunity to receive potentially lifesaving treatment.

The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder, PC, represent clients in a variety medical malpractice claims involving misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose, including:

  • Heart attack (MI) misdiagnosis: Many people who appear at doctors' offices and emergency rooms with symptoms of a heart attack are misdiagnosed. They are often sent home where they may suffer a fatal heart attack. Failure to recognize and treat heart attack symptoms is a form of malpractice.
  • Stroke misdiagnosis: Failure to diagnose stroke symptoms in a timely manner can make the difference between the patient's full recovery and permanent disability or death.
  • Radiological misdiagnosis: Patient outcomes are dependent on a prompt and accurate diagnosis. A radiological misdiagnosis can delay effective treatment of conditions ranging from broken bones to cancer to stroke.
  • Pulmonary embolism: Our lawyers have recovered significant financial compensation for clients who suffered a pulmonary embolism because of a misdiagnosis.
