Failure to Timely Treat a Medical Condition

One of the most common medical mistakes is the misdiagnosis of symptoms or the failure to timely diagnose or treat a medical condition. When warning signs or symptoms are present, it is often critical to your or your family’s health that the doctor recognize those symptoms and make a prompt diagnosis. A delay in treatment or misdiagnosis of a medical condition can prevent you or a family member from seeking the necessary diagnostic testing and may deprive you of an opportunity to receive the treatment which could significantly impact your condition. This is especially true in cases of cancer misdiagnosis or other such conditions where early treatment is critical.

Unfortunately, your treating physician doesn’t always get it right and sometimes that careless mistakes my cost you or a family member their life. I and my team of experienced attorneys have recovered over 200 million dollars for injury and accident victims and we will fight for you!!!

Medical mistakes often result in delayed treatment, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose when the doctor fails to give their full time and attention to the patient. If a doctor fails to recognize or appreciate the complaints of their patient, the results can lead to significant injuries as a result of delayed treatment. If injuries resulting from delayed treatment or misdiagnosis could have been prevented, the patient and their family should not be responsible for the damages caused.

Medical Malpractice lawsuits result from a vast variety of negligent or careless mistakes from the doctors, nurses, and/or other Hospital staff. A delay in treatment that results in injuries that would have otherwise been avoided is a serious medical mistake and may entitle you and your family to thousands of dollars for your injuries. Side effects of delayed treatment can be life threatening issues such as brain damage or complete failure, hemorrhages, semi or permanent disabilities, paralysis, infections, blood flow disruption and even death. Also note that delay in treatment can also occur when hospital or a doctor refuses treatment and in turn the refusal causes a delay in the treatment which in turn causes more server injuries than otherwise would have occurred.

Not only are these types of cases financially stressful but also emotionally and physically.
