Failure to Diagnose Attorneys in Jacksonville

Did Your Doctor Misdiagnose or Delay Diagnosis of Your Illness?

A timely, accurate diagnosis provides the foundation for proper medical treatment. It is the only way to ensure that an illness or injury is treated in the appropriate manner and is particularly important in cases involving progressive and life-threatening conditions like cancer, heart attack, and stroke.

If your doctor failed to properly diagnose your condition in a timely manner, you deserve justice for the harm you have suffered.

The Jacksonville failure to diagnose lawyers at Spohrer Dodd can deliver the experienced legal representation you need with our manpower, resources, and expertise in handling highly complex medical malpractice cases.

Call (904) 637-7721 to find out how we can help your case. We are committed to pursuing justice.

How To Know If You Have a Case for Delayed Diagnosis

If a doctor, nurse, or even therapist failed to properly diagnose your medical condition, you may have grounds for a malpractice lawsuit. However, it's not easy to tell if a medical provider did their due diligence when diagnosing a patient's symptoms or injury.

Signs that your doctor failed to diagnose your condition include:

  • Your symptoms did not get better or got worse
  • Your doctor/nurse seemed dismissive or didn't ask the right questions
  • Your doctor took a long time to diagnose a common illness

At the end of the day, you are not a doctor and can't be expected to know if your healthcare provider made a mistake. That's why you need a team of experienced attorneys and medical experts who can investigate your claim and determine if you deserve compensation for your pain and suffering. Call Spohrer Dodd now at (904) 637-7721 to begin working with a failure to diagnose lawyer in Jacksonville.

Common Types of Diagnostic Errors

Diagnostic negligence, a failure to provide standard care in the diagnosis of a patient’s condition, can take on different forms. While some diagnostic errors are relatively harmless, others can cause serious injury or may even lead to the untimely death of a patient. It is important to properly identify how and why diagnostic negligence occurred in order to hold at-fault parties accountable.

Our attorneys can take on cases involving:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Failure to diagnose stroke, heart attack, or heart disease
  • Failure to diagnose preeclampsia or other conditions affecting pregnant women
  • Mistakes in reading laboratory test results
  • Failure to refer a patient to a specialist for an accurate diagnosis
  • Failure to perform additional tests to confirm a diagnosis

These are highly technical cases, but our team includes an in-house physician to aid in investigating claims to identify medical malpractice. Our Jacksonville failure to diagnose attorneys have over 150 years of experience and our paralegals have decades of experience as well. Because we work as a team on diagnostic errors and other medical malpractice cases, we are able to provide more powerful and effective counsel. We are truly committed to your future and your stability.
