We Hold Doctors Responsible For Delayed Diagnosis
Doctors are trained to consider symptoms, examinations, medical tests and past medical records in order to diagnose patients. With serious conditions like stroke, heart attack, cancer and obstructions, there is usually a brief window of time to treat the condition successfully. If the correct diagnosis is delayed or doesn’t happen at all, proper treatment is also delayed, and the consequences can be fatal for patients.
If you or a loved one has been harmed due to delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis, contact Saunders Law Group in Bartow, Florida, today. Our attorneys represent medical malpractice victims and their families throughout Central Florida.
How Does A Diagnosis Get Delayed?
It is devastating news to learn that you may have missed possible recovery opportunities because a doctor failed to make a timely diagnosis. Unfortunately, delayed diagnosis and failure to diagnose can happen due to a variety of doctor errors, including:
- Failure to order proper tests
- Medical tests being improperly conducted
- Misreading of radiological results and other tests
- Sending emergency room patients home untreated for serious conditions like stroke and cardiac arrest
Sadly, failure to diagnose cancer is not uncommon. If your doctor or your loved one’s doctor did not provide a timely diagnosis of cancer, contact our medical malpractice lawyers as soon as possible.
