Failure to Diagnose & Other Types of Diagnostic Negligence
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
