Failure to Diagnose

Medical Malpractice Lawyers Will Review Your Situation

Doctors have responsibilities to their patients long before any actual treatment begins. Committing negligent errors in the diagnosis stage can have serious consequences for patients. Shapiro Law Group wants to provide incentive to eliminate these errors while assisting those who suffer from conditions caused by medical malpractice. We focus not just on assisting victims of injury, but also on fighting to make sure hospitals and other medical care providers always make patient safety their number one priority. Our medical malpractice lawsuits have effected positive change in many hospitals as well as recovered compensation for injured patients.

My Doctor Failed to Diagnose a Condition – Do I Need a Lawyer?                      

Not every missed diagnosis qualifies as medical malpractice. However, if a correct diagnosis could have been made but a physician did not exercise reasonable care and thus failed to notice or report the condition and harm is suffered by the victim, a victim may be entitled to compensation.

A patient who may be a victim of this medical negligence should speak with an attorney. Richard M. Shapiro has over 30 years of experience working with victims of medical malpractice claims. Thus, he can determine whether a physician did not act with reasonable care when making a diagnosis. He can investigate a potential case of misdiagnosis and determine if the health care provider is legally at fault for the mistake.

Locate an Experienced Medical Malpractice Attorney to Handle Your Claim

A lawyer who has experience in medical malpractice cases may be capable of finding out exactly where the mistake occurred. The error may have occurred anywhere along the chain of care: perhaps a lab erred in giving results of a test to a hospital or doctor, perhaps the results for the patients were switched in error. Any one of almost countless problems may have led to an improper diagnosis, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis.

Finally, victims of medical malpractice need an attorney to prove that diagnostic errors caused their injuries. Medical care providers will argue that a victim’s medical conditions are unrelated to any diagnosis. However, Richard Shapiro works closely with top medical experts and can counter these arguments with facts. We thoroughly investigate every claim: we pore over hundreds of medical documents and consult with two independent medical professionals to be absolutely sure that malpractice caused you or your loved one’s injury.
