Determining Doctor Negligence
Just because a doctor failed to diagnose and treat your illness soon enough to obtain a positive outcome does not mean the doctor committed malpractice. Sometimes doctors do everything that they are supposed to do, but still fail to discover and treat an illness at an early stage. However, if your doctor missed diagnosing your illness as a result of avoidable errors, he or she may be guilty of malpractice.
The following are examples of avoidable errors:
- Failure to diagnose a serious disease such as cancer despite observable symptoms
- Failure to order appropriate tests
- Failure to discover an illness on a CT scan, ultrasound, X-ray, or other image
- Failure to communicate lab test results to the doctor or patient
Our New York misdiagnosis lawyers work with medical experts who help us review medical records and determine if a doctor may have provided substandard care. If so, we can seek compensation for all of the losses you have suffered, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Contact our firm today if you’ve been misdiagnosed, or haven’t been diagnosed at all.
