Misdiagnosis And Failure To Diagnose Attorneys

Doctors go through years of training to learn how to properly diagnose medical conditions. When a patient presents symptoms, a doctor is trained to carefully consider all possibilities and not simply jump to a conclusion. Unfortunately, considering all possibilities takes time and may require tests and help from specialists, so all too often doctors just make an assumption. When the assumption is wrong, the patient may suffer serious harm because a correct diagnosis was not made and treatment was not provided. A disease that may have been curable in the early stages may have become terminal.

 At The Sanders Law Firm in Covington, we take action against doctors whose misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious medical condition has caused serious harm. Our medical malpractice attorneys  pursue maximum compensation for victims.

Failure To Treat Cancer

Many forms of cancer are treatable if caught in the early stages. Breast cancer, prostate cancer and other cancer can be overcome if diagnosed as quickly as possible and properly treated. Unfortunately, there are many ways that a cancer diagnosis may be missed.

The treating doctor may not recognize the symptoms and diagnose the condition as something other than cancer, losing valuable treatment opportunities. In some cases, the doctor may order testing, but the testing may be mishandled in the lab. Perhaps the testing is handled correctly, but is not interpreted accurately. Our lawyers will work to determine at which stage medical negligence occurred and then take the appropriate action.

Failure To Treat Other Medical Conditions

While cancer is a commonly misdiagnosed condition, it is certainly not the only dangerous condition that may be inaccurately diagnosed. Our attorneys can handle cases involving failure to diagnose heart attacks, strokes and more. We have represented many victims of infectious diseases that went untreated because of failure to diagnose. We take pride in the fact that we have been holding negligent doctors accountable since 1972.
