Failure to Properly Treat a Medical Condition

When a physician fails to interpret symptoms of an ailment in a timely fashion or misdiagnose the symptoms, the effects can be devastating for a patient. Time is of the essence in medical care and delays in action can change a situation from routine to tragic in a matter of minutes. I have many years of experience representing plaintiffs who have been injured or have died as the result of medical malpractice involving a doctor’s failure to treat in a timely manner or medical misdiagnosis.

I have many years of experience representing client who have been misdiagnosed, including clients who had the following illnesses misdiagnosed:

  • Testicular Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Lung Cancer
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Tuberculosis
  • Diabetes
  • Acute Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
  • Strokes
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Bacterial Meningitis
  • Appendicitis
  • among others

Whether a Chicago doctor, Chicago area hospital staff member or other Chicago health care provider is at fault, a misdiagnosis of a serious illness can have extreme effects on a patient’s life. I am well versed in the latest developments in medical practices and can identify any deviation in care. I work closely with medical experts, such as doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and therapists throughout the legal process. For example, when a doctor fails to diagnose breast cancer, we seek out and retain a practicing Breast Cancer Specialist to determine the full circumstances of the misdiagnosis and in the case of a misread mammogram, I will find an expert radiologist to examine your x-rays.

If necessary, I also retain expert accountants and financial analysts because many medical malpractice cases have their own set of associated losses including lost wages, the cost of care and many other monetary costs. I do this in order to accurately assess what these costs will be for the remainder of a victim’s life, I use financial professionals to derive fair resolutions for our injury victims. It is through this coordinated effort that I have consistently obtained record-breaking awards and settlements and obtained hundreds of millions of dollars for their injured clients.

If you or a family member have suffered a personal injury as a result of medical malpractice, negligence or carelessness of a Chicago doctor or other Chicago health care provider, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. If you or a loved one has been the victim of misdiagnoses of medical condition, please contact me at (312) 888-8000 to learn more about your legal rights.
