Misdiagnoses can lead to worsened conditions and even death

| Mar 25, 2016 | failure to diagnose

Patients suffer when a doctor doesn’t make the proper diagnosis. There are some medical conditions that can lead to more serious issues if the condition isn’t diagnosed properly in a timely manner. We know that the effects of a misdiagnosis are considerable. If you suffered from a misdiagnosis and ended up in an even worse condition, you might choose to seek compensation.

Think about what would happen if an aggressive cancer wasn’t found quickly despite your attempts to get medical care. The cancer might metastasize if you aren’t getting proper care to destroy the cancer cells. This can often lead to a treatable cancer becoming incurable and ultimately fatal.

Another example might be an undiagnosed heart attack or stroke that leads to death. Both conditions require prompt diagnoses and treatment for optimum outcomes.

If your actual diagnosis is eventually made, you will finally be able to get the treatment you need unless it is too late for treatments to be effective. Even if you are able to get treatments, you might find that they are much more invasive than what they would have been if you got treatment earlier.

More intensive medical care can have a financial impact on you. When the issue was caused by a medical professional’s inactions or errors, you shouldn’t have to bear the burden of the costs. We can help you seek compensation that might defray some or all of the middle bills related to the misdiagnosis. This can allow you to avoid wiping out your finances in order to get the care you need to heal and survive.
