A medical misdiagnosis is more than a bad guess by your doctor. It could mean that you are taking the wrong medication and your real problem is getting worse. Doctors who don’t take the requisite time or order the right tests to make a proper diagnosis put the lives of their patients in jeopardy. Misdiagnosis of pancreatic cancer for example is often a death sentence.
At Ladah Law Firm, PLLC we are experienced misdiagnosis attorneys. We understand the importance of receiving the proper medical care when it is needed. Doctors are required to keep up on medical advancements through an intensive recertification process. If they don’t take these steps they can fall behind on new techniques and tests that help to diagnose. Since diagnosis is the primary step in any medical treatment, failure to take the necessary time for an accurate assessment, is negligent.
Doctors will misdiagnose for several different reasons. Sometime they are in a hurry and they will match your symptoms to the most common cause. Other times they fail to listen to you, and ignore important things you say that should lead them down the right path. Other times they fail to order the proper tests; while other times, they rely too heavily on a test and ignore your complaints.
Sometimes, several doctors will misdiagnose a problem. Considering there is almost no ailment that can’t be identified, this negligence shouldn’t be acceptable.
When a misdiagnosis creates a medical crisis for you or your family, you have the right to be compensated for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and the consequences of the disease or ailment that wasn’t properly diagnosed. Tragically, a misdiagnosis can turn into a wrongful death suit or an ailment requiring long-term care, when a proper diagnosis would have solved these problems. Give us a call and let us help you receive the compensation and medical care you need and deserve.
