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.

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.
