Get the compensation you deserve with the help of our experienced attorneys
A medical misdiagnosis occurs when a health provider fails to properly diagnose a patient’s medical condition. Medical misdiagnoses often cause patients’ medical conditions to deteriorate substantially, leading to both physical and emotional trauma. In addition, medical misdiagnoses often cause patients to waste time and money pursuing treatments and tests that they didn’t need in the first place. Finally, patients frequently suffer additional health problems when prescribed unnecessary medications intended to treat misdiagnosed medical issues. If you or a loved one have suffered harm due to a medical misdiagnosis, we want you to know that you’re not alone. At GED Lawyers, LLP, our experienced medical malpractice lawyers zealously represent you in your medical misdiagnosis case’ fighting to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Ways doctors misdiagnose patients
Virtually any mistake made by a medical professional during the diagnostic process qualifies as a medical misdiagnosis. Common types of medical misdiagnoses include:
- Diagnosis delays
- Incorrect diagnosis
- Missed diagnosis
- Failure to diagnose diseases related to a primary diagnosis
- Failure to recognize complications
- Failure to diagnose diseases unrelated to a primary diagnosis
However, it’s important to keep in mind that even a correct diagnosis can lead to a lawsuit if you continue to face complications despite your doctor’s prescribed treatment. Therefore, if you are currently suffering from a medical ailment that isn’t responding to your doctor’s prescribed treatment, please allow our experienced medical malpractice attorneys to review your case and determine if you may be entitled to financial compensation.
What types of damages are available in a medical misdiagnosis case?
Damages are awarded to plaintiffs to compensate them for the harm they have suffered. If you sue your medical provider, there are a number of types of damages that may be available to you, including:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of earning capacity
The damages available to you depend on the specific circumstances of your case.
