We Want To Make Your Case a Success
With our law firm on your side, you can be confident that you will have a team that is willing to put in the effort necessary to get results. We will dedicate ourselves to getting you fair compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs.
The medical field continues to make impressive progress in terms of their ability to treat serious conditions. However, all of that knowledge is worthless if a doctor fails to recognize the presence of a life-threatening condition. When we represent a client who was misdiagnosed, we work with trusted experts to verify that medical negligence led to a failure to diagnose your condition so it could be properly treated.
Our lawyers handle cases involving:
- Failure To Diagnose Impending Cardiac Arrest
- Misdiagnosis of Cancer
- Failure To Diagnose Breast Cancer
These cases can vary greatly. Some simply involve a doctor failing to conduct a necessary test. Others are complex and involve doctors failing to recognize subtle changes that were revealed by test results such as X-rays or CT scans.
Our team has the ability to pursue cases involving misdiagnosis in the emergency room, as well as those involving failure to diagnose life threatening conditions during yearly physicals and other office visits.
Multimillion-Dollar Results in Medical Misdiagnosis Cases
We are proud of our record of noteworthy cases, which includes a settlement for a young man who went to the emergency room for treatment of a gunshot wound. The hospital failed to diagnose a serious vascular injury caused by the gunshot. Left untreated, the injury eventually led to the amputation of the leg. Our team obtained $2.5 million for the victim.
