How Our Misdiagnosis Attorneys Can Help You
In order to succeed in a medical misdiagnosis case, four basic facts must be established:
- There was a medical professional/patient relationship between the defendant and the victim.
- The medical professional owed the patient a duty of care.
- The medical professional breached the duty of care to the patient through some negligent action or inaction.
- The victim was injured or died as a direct result of the negligent misdiagnosis.

We Will Investigate How the Medical Misdiagnosis Occurred
Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose can result in improper medical care, delayed treatment, or no treatment, which in turn injures or worsens the patient’s medical condition. Our knowledgeable team will do the hard work for you and thoroughly investigate the details of your claim to determine where the misdiagnosis issue occurred.
Some common reasons misdiagnosis happens include:
- Inadequately trained medical care providers
- Errors in test results (flawed equipment or human error)
- Medical tests were read incorrectly (CAT scans, X-rays, blood tests, etc.)
- Your lab results were mixed up with another patient’s results
- Miscommunication in the health team
- Declining to order appropriate tests indicated by symptoms
- Failure to contact patients with abnormal test results
- ER staff fatigue
