Failure to Diagnose

People visit the doctor or hospital when something is wrong. They count on doctors, nurses and health care professionals for timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment. When a diagnosis is delayed, or when the diagnosis is incorrect, the patient may suffer unnecessary complications and a worsening condition. Tragically, the window of opportunity to treat the condition may be lost, resulting in permanent harm or premature death.

The attorneys of Kurzban Kurzban Weinger Tetzeli and Pratt P.A. have extensive experience litigating medical malpractice, including failure to diagnose serious or terminal medical conditions. We have secured notable verdicts and settlements in cases throughout the United States.

Medical Malpractice In Undiagnosed Conditions And Misdiagnosis

Medical litigation is a hallmark of our firm. We have won record-setting awards for clients in high-profile cases, including a number of cases of diagnosis errors. You may have grounds to sue a physician or hospital personnel for failure to diagnose:

  • Breast cancer and other cancers
  • Kidney disease
  • Appendicitis
  • Tuberculosis
  • Diabetes
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke or pulmonary embolism
  • Internal bleeding
  • Serious infection
  • Meningitis

A delayed diagnosis of cancer or other disease at a treatable stage deprives the person of a possible cure or less invasive remedy. Even in the case of terminal cancer, failing to diagnose the disease may rob the patient and family of treatments that could alleviate pain and extend life by precious months.

We consult top medical experts who can review the medical records and attest that the doctors missed tell-tale signs, failed to order additional tests, misread the lab reports or otherwise failed to make a diagnosis that a diligent physician would have.

Our attorneys have extensive experience guiding clients and surviving loved ones through the legal process of monetary compensation. We understand that facing the deteriorating health of a family member can take precedence over any other consideration. Unfortunately, medical bills, treatment, follow-up surgeries and lengthy hospital stays can quickly add up to financial peril for the entire family.
