Medical Malpractice & Failure to Diagnose Injury Laywers

Winning the Settlement You Need to Move Forward 

You haven’t been feeling well and decide to visit your doctor. They run multiple tests, but insist that nothing is medically wrong. You return home, but continue to get worse. This goes on for some time before finally, a different doctor determines you have a severe disease that the other doctor failed to diagnose. 

Failure to diagnose is a form of medical malpractice that is usually attributed to a medical professional missing crucial data on a patient. A situation like this could mean the difference between saving someone’s life, and missing the treatment window. When you experience the emotional turmoil of a trusted professional’s failure to diagnose, a long legal and insurance battle lies ahead so you can get the money you deserve.

Montlick & Associates helped me with my case without hesitation. Helped me with financial frustrations, checked on my physical health often and took away all the additional stress away. My case was resolved a lot faster than i anticipated and they fought hard for me. Would recommend them to anyone.
Cate Powell and her team was great in helping me with my case!!! I was the passenger in a 3 car accident. Got rear ended. They were very kind and patiently explained things that I didn’t understand. THANK YOU FOR ALL HELP!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Scott Patterson was extremely helpful in our settlement for a horrible car accident I was involved with, would definitely use him again if ever needed. His team is hands down very professional and helpful during the whole process. 10/10 would recommend.

I appreciate Montlick & Associates. They helped me with a case when others said that I did not have a case. The constant communication and the attention given was superb, and my settlement was more than I expected. If ever I’m in need again, Montlick will be my first option.
Had a injury nobody else would take, Montlick took and and helped me to settleBrought my first ram truck from the settlement thank you Jason - Attorney, thank you Montlick. Also I want to thank Victoria Montlick Wins! Go with Montlick ! They will Lick the counterpart to pieces
Dayna and Ellen were very helpful negotiating on our behalf when our toddler was injured by a medical product. Initially the company told us directly we would be compensated for my son’s injury and treatment, but they then said that they actually don’t do that when I called to follow up after sending them the paperwork they asked for. So we reached out to Ellen to discuss our son and to see if she could contact the company on our behalf.Ellen and Dayna were very direct and honest about what we could expect and then kept us updated throughout their negotiations with the company responsible for my son’s injury and were able to get a settlement from the company for my son, without needing to go to court. They took the headache out of the situation and made everything very easy. Highly recommend them.
I had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Montlick from start to finish. I know for a fact that I would have had so much more pain and stress if it weren't for their handling of my case. Alyssa White and Antonia Morris handled everything with expert care. They were very communicative as well - any time I had a question it was answered immediately. I am so glad I made the right decision to call them when I needed help. I cannot recommend them enough!
Attorney Jennifer Fleming and her Assistant, Joy Herrington were beyond amazing! They were both very professional and patient. As well, no gaps in communication (major plus for me) and my case received above my expectations. Thank you team for educating me through the process and all you did to help my case.
Alyssa and Antonia was very professional and helpful when working on my case I highly suggest this law firm.
On Oct 30, 2022, I was in a Hit and Run Accident in Lagrange GA. by a non-insured motorist, Not naming the 3 previous law firms that totally almost ruined my chances in getting things doing and helping me through my nightmare. a year head almost went by feeling like i was the perpetrator and not the victim of a hit and run. I never been in any car accident of this multitude. I was so lost, had not guidance of what to do and how to do it right. Never even got to talk to any of the previous attorneys that claim they help people after a car accident. I had sunk into deep depression. As a retired Veteran that suffer from PTSD and Paranoia when i had to drive, I was so scared and afraid to the point I had other drivers around me wondering if i was a safe driver. until one night i was watch TV after praying to God to please send me an Angle to help me that's when Montlick & Associates commercial came on it was. I set up in my bed and knew if I wanted real help and be able to talk with an Attorney on my case and not some injury firm Secretary. I need to call right away cause time head already been wasted, fighting with the last three injury law firms. Mrs. Neives was my Angle along with everyone at Montlick I felt like not only did I have an Attorney but i also had an after Accident Mental Therapist she insured me that she would get everything back on the right track. and rewrite all the wrongs and make them right. not one time did i every had to call for any updates. if there was anything she needed answers to I was contact by her or someone on her team by email or phone call. the Only thing i regrate is not calling Monlick & Associates when the Hit and Run first Accrued from the Hospital. my story goes out to everyone who may find themselves in the same situation. Yes, there is a lot of an injury law firms out there but I will bet my bottom dollar that you will not talk to nor know who your attorney is and be kept updated about your cause if you're not a client of Montlick & Associates. I thank my Heavenly Father for everyone at Montlick & Associates
Montlick & Associates (Doug Rosser, Jamie and their amazing team) goes above and beyond! Very professional...great communication and helpful! I appreciate their service and I would absolutely recommend this Law Firm!!!
If you're ever in need of an injury attorney, Alex T. is the absolute best. He is extremely helpful and efficient and got my husband a great settlement after he was injured at work. His secretary Naneen was a God send! They made sure to respond very quickly when there were questions and always kept us well informed.
Ellen Forrester and Nicole Casorio are the best in the business.Incredible professionalism, honesty and efficiency.Not only was Ellen 100% accurate on her assessment of my case, she was also a straight shooter.Nicole thank you for your patience and help in navigating this stressful process.10/10
Since Covid, I’ve been in 3 hit-and-run accidents in which neither were my fault. I had a different attorney represented me in the first accident who was not very attentive nor responsive to my numerous calls and questions. For my second and third accident, I decided to go with Montlick and Associates, specifically Attorney Cate Powell. Cate, returned my call; she listened, took notes, allowed me to vent about chronic pain I was experiencing and after finding out that the other driver almost got out of paying the liability claim due to a technicality, Cate assured me that she had everything under control. Unlike my first attorney, she not only provided updates but she checked on my recovery as well; and if she was unable to personally update me, she allowed her team to provide an update. Cate is a fighter for her clients, she even dealt with my insurance to ensure that I received everything that was owed to me. And she also represented my husband as well. She is now someone I trust wholeheartedly, and if I ever have a legal matter, I can call her for help and if she can’t represent me, she will certainly point me in the right direction.So, if you’re ever in an accident and seeking legal representation, and need a no-nonsense attorney, call Attorney Cate Powell because I am telling you from experience – she would be your one call that would fully represent you. Trust me!

Failure to Diagnose Injury Attorneys

The Help You Need, The Lawyers You Trust®

A study conducted by the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reported that an estimated 7.4 MILLION misdiagnoses are made each year, with 2.6 million resulting in harm that could have been prevented. The study determined that almost 400,000 people are left permanently disabled, or have died due to a medical professional misdiagnosis.

Failure to diagnose is a serious and heartbreaking form of medical malpractice. The most common cases generally involve the failure to properly or promptly diagnose cancers such as breast cancer, colon cancer and cervical cancer, as well as a failure to diagnose heart attacks and strokes.

These cases are particularly complicated, and require an attorney with the knowledge, experience and resources to win. These cases usually require the testimony of expert witnesses to confirm that your medical provider did not meet the standard of care required under that particular circumstance. Montlick knows what it takes to win failure to diagnose cases.

Failure to Diagnose Injury Law Firm

Legal Deadlines

We urge anyone who has been injured by reckless or negligent conduct of a medical professional to call a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the incident. Each state has specific laws about how long you have after an incident to bring a claim (also called “statute of limitations”).
While most statutes generally gives injured people two years from the date of the incident to file, this timeline can vary depending on the facts of each unique case, making your timeline longer or shorter. Once the legal time deadline passes for your case, you can no longer receive any money in relation to your claim.
While filing a lawsuit might be the furthest thing from your mind as you come to terms with the consequences of the failure to diagnose your condition, a Montlick attorney can walk you through your options during a free consultation. It’s key that you understand your legal rights, and know the steps necessary to protect those rights.

Compensation for a failure to diagnose a claim may include money for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, severity of negligence, emotional distress and more.
