Misdiagnosis & Delayed Diagnosis

Aggressively Pursuing Justice on Your Behalf

Medical malpractice is an epidemic sweeping the country, affection millions of patients every day. When a doctor makes a grave error, it can have life-threatening repercussions. Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis are some of the most common forms of medical malpractice, as they lead to countless injuries and deaths occurring each year. While not all diagnostic errors are held liable in the eyes of the law, an injury caused by a doctor’s negligent treatment can be cause for a medical malpractice case.

If it is proven that another doctor would have made the correct diagnosis and the offending doctor was acting competently, there may be a possibility of litigation. An experienced and knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer will be able to find evidence that proves in similar circumstances, the illness or condition would not have been misdiagnosed or delayed. In case of faulty or failing technical equipment, a doctor will not be held liable for the misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis however, another medical professional certainly will be.

Delayed diagnosis can be as dangerous as misdiagnosis, as one’s condition will inevitably worsen far faster than it would have had the patient received a correct diagnosis. The longer it takes to get a diagnosis, the further a patient is from recovery, which is why doctors should strive to help their patients in a timely manner so as to avoid negligent behavior.

After my accident I was in so much pain and so confused that I didn't know where to go, so I contacted the Injury Law Center. Joe would sit and he would listen and talk to me and hear what I was saying and what was really going on with me. He explained everything. It really made a difference and gave me a peace of mind. I knew that he knew me well enough to take care of my best interests. He heard the story behind everything and made sure that the insurance company had to take action. Deb Brosnan

If someone I cared for was going to be going through something like this I would definitely recommend Injury Law Center as your first point of reference. My case went on for a very long time, over a year, and we were on very good terms the entire time. Attorney Russo came to visit me several times in the hospital and brought me things to do in rehab. They were very supportive the entire time. Injury Law Center was able to exceed my expectations and I am able to live comfortably without having to work. Valerie

I had a car accident that affected my business and my ability to deal with insurance companies was very difficult. Joe stayed the course and we were offered very fair compensation.I think it was because of Joe and the hard work of the team. It was a very long trial but it turned out to be in our favor which we were very happy about. Mat Morello
