Did A Doctor Fail To Diagnose Your Condition? We Can Help.
To treat a medical condition, a doctor’s first step is to properly diagnose the problem. Without a proper diagnosis, it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to treat someone’s illness or injury.
Unfortunately, a physician’s misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose can have catastrophic consequences for the patient, especially if the patient is suffering from a serious condition or illness such as stroke, heart attack or cancer.
If you believe a doctor failed to diagnose your illness, contact us today. From offices in Bartow, Florida, the medical malpractice lawyers at Saunders Law Group represent people throughout Polk, Highlands, Hardee and Hillsborough counties.
How Common Is Misdiagnosis?
In our more than 30 years of representing injury victims and their families, we have seen multiple types of failures on the part of medical professionals. While some conditions such as cardiac arrest and stroke can be difficult to diagnose because of varying symptoms, medical professionals nonetheless have a responsibility to meet the standard of care for their particular medical fields.
In many cases, failure to diagnose or delayed diagnosis results from the doctor’s failure to review or follow up on laboratory, pathology or radiology test results. Unfortunately, this kind of medical malpractice is more common than most people realize. However, proving medical negligence in these cases can be a complex matter, requiring the skill, knowledge and professional resources of an experienced medical malpractice trial attorney.
