Acting Swiftly After A Failure To Diagnose

It can be devastating to learn that a correct diagnosis could have prevented your serious medical condition or illness from developing and this medical condition or illness could have been effectively treated in its early stages with a correct diagnosis. Tragically, it only takes one misdiagnosis to compromise your health for years.

When medical professionals overlook or misinterpret test results, they jeopardize your well-being. Our attorneys at Frankovitch, Anetakis, Simon, Decapio & Pearl, LLP are prepared to hold them accountable for their negligence, whether the error occurred as a result of a misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose. We act swiftly after our clients have suffered from a preventable medical mistake because we know that time is critical.

Common Types Of Diagnosis Errors

General practitioners, specialists, emergency room doctors and imaging technicians receive extensive training to identify symptoms associated with diseases or illnesses. Missing a tell-tale sign can limit the time you have to treat your condition when treatment is still an option.

We represent injured patients and their loved ones who have been affected by:

  • Imaging errors in MRIs, X-rays, mammograms, CT scans or ultrasounds
  • Missed diagnoses in the emergency room, during regular checkups or with a medical specialist
  • Failure to interpret test results correctly

Our firm has over fifty years’ experience with complicated medical malpractice cases. We are qualified to handle claims relating to a failure to diagnose:

  • Fetal distress
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Cancer
  • Heart attacks
  • Stroke or blood clots

Our team of trial lawyers is equipped to take intricate medical malpractice cases because we are intimately familiar with the litigation process and the type of evidence necessary to get results. We leverage this insight when we create our strategy for your case.
