When Failure To Diagnose Or Misdiagnosis Has Led To Serious Illness

You go to your doctor in order to protect your health both in the immediate future and in the long term. You trust them to accurately diagnose any problems you may have and diagnose things you could never notice.

If you developed a serious condition or disease because your doctor failed to diagnose your condition, you may have been the victim of medical malpractice. The failure to diagnose can be very serious. At the Atlanta law offices of Houck | Reynolds, LLC, we can help.

Georgia Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers

There are a number of factors that can lead to a failure to diagnose and it can happen to any health care provider. In looking at this type of claim, it is important to look at the whole process to determine whether or not reasonable steps were taken to diagnose and treat your condition.

The failure to diagnose can be especially dangerous because many conditions can be easily treated when they are caught early. However, the more time your condition is given to develop, the more likely you are to suffer serious setbacks and further injury. We handle misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose claims for all sorts of conditions, including:

  • Cancer
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Stroke
  • Trauma

The results of misdiagnosis or non-diagnosis can be catastrophic. You may not receive treatment when you need it. You may be prescribed the wrong medications. Your health may be severely jeopardized.
