Failure to Diagnose a Medical Condition
We all rely on doctors to identify and diagnose illness and serious conditions early enough so that we can take necessary steps to get proper treatment. But if your doctor does not diagnose your serious or potentially life-threatening condition, the outcome could be devastating.
If your doctor failed to diagnose an illness, resulting in further sickness or bodily harm, there are legal options available. At Jacobs & Jacobs of New Haven, Connecticut, our lawyers will thoroughly investigate the situation and fight on your behalf to hold the responsible doctors accountable. To discuss the situation with a skilled and knowledgeable attorney, please contact our law firm today at 203-777-2300.
How Jacobs & Jacobs Handles Cases of Failure to Diagnose
Our attorneys understand the diagnostic process and will thoroughly investigate all pertinent records, X-rays, lab errors, and steps taken by the doctor. Some of the most dangerous errors include:
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Failure to diagnose infections
- Failure to diagnose heart disease and attack
- Failure to recognize and correct surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose and treat post-surgical infection
- Delayed diagnosis
Early detection is critical, and carelessness or inattentiveness on the part of the attending doctor can result in severe illness or even death. Doctors are trained to identify symptoms and provide the treatment and options available. Our firm holds these health care providers accountable when they fail to do so.
We have the experience, financial resources, and access to medical experts needed to thoroughly investigate medical malpractice cases and fight for justice. Call our firm at 203-777-2300 to discuss your case.
