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.
If you believe you or a member of your family was seriously harmed because of a medical misdiagnosis, please contact the attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder, PC. We offer a free consultation to discuss your case and explain your legal options.
