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.

Hi I would like to thank Scott Patterson for everything for helping me with my case. He is a nice and terrific guy.
After a terrible accident, we turned to Ellen Forrester at Montlick for help with my mom's case. She walked us through everything step by step, handled the documentation and when it came time, her colleague, Mike Moran, and her represented my mom amazingly at mediation. While we are very happy with the settlement reached, this process was so much easier with their care and guidance. We will forever recommend them and Montlick to anyone.
Cate Powell and her team did excellent job at getting me the help I needed. They referred me to a great medical facility for treatment. Any questions I had was met with a quick response and I was always up to date on what was happening. They made the process as easy as possible for me. I would highly recommend using Cate Powell with montlick and associates.

My attorney did his job. He helped me and listened to me. He was a blessing to have as my attorney.
When it comes to personal injuries being handled with upmost quality care, professionalism and determination to resolve all legal woes quickly and successfully. I'll be the first in a very long line of satisfied customers to say that Monica Pearson, (one of Atlanta's great Black female broadcast journalists and the first, former WSB-TV evening anchor at Channel 2 Action News) who I truly admire was right on the money (meaning trustworthy) for informing all victims of negligence to seek legal help from a proven law firm such as Montlick & Associates, who I call the best of the best LEGAL STRONG ARMS in the personal injury business!I'm a client of this wonderful establishment who truly took care of all my needs relating to my unfortunate accident, all due to a distracted driver who paid dearly for his poor driving ability.In saying that, I must recognize two important people at the firm. One is legal assistant Amber Starks (a marvelous paralegal) who kept my spirit up while I dealt with my personal recovery. Amber Starks is fantastic person to know, and second is my attorney, the incredible Nick Vocino. I call him a "legal eagle battling ram" for the underdog against vicious insurance companies. He's terrific! Nick "The Battle Ram" Vocino is "no joke" when it comes to him protecting his clients, he's fabulous! And last but also first is the entire staff at Montlick, who made me feel like one of their family members, just splendid! Alright people, I stated I was recognizing two, but I ended up acknowledging four. Monica Pearson, Amber Starks, Nick Vocino and the staff at Montlick; thank you for all that you have done and still do. All of you have earned my respect and deserve a round of applause from your clients. Ladies & gentlemen, I appreciate you for a job well done. Many blessings I send to you.
I had a wonderful experience with Montlick and my lawyer Nick Vocino. He was very efficient and always available if I needed him. I would recommend Montlick and Nick V. to anyone who needs help after an accident!
My experience with Montlick&Associates was truly a great one. They represented me and my family very well from start to finish. Ms. Forrester and Ms. Casoriowere exceptional and very good at keeping me informed and helpful during my time as their client. I would recommend to anyone that needs an a attorney, look no further because Montlick&Associates is and will be the first to call.Sincerely,Lawrence
I cannot say enough good things about Ellen Forrester and Dayna Clark at Montlick. They took an awful incident and walked me through the process of getting the care I needed and knowledge to help pay for expenses and get a reasonable claim to help me and my family. I have recommended them to others and definitely recommend them to those looking for an attorney that listens and treats you like a person.
Amazing experience with montlick . They were helpful during entire time especially Mr Vocino. I would definitely recommend them to others .

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.
