Our lawyers represent people misdiagnosed by doctors and other medical professionals. This includes representing people who have suffered due to delayed diagnosis as well. When a medical emergency occurs, a serious illness develops or a child is being born, time is vital.
Medical professionals have access to a remarkable array of diagnostic tools and treatment options. Cancer, strokes, heart attack — conditions that may have been fatal a decade ago can often be diagnosed early and treated successfully.
However, if the proper diagnostic tools are not used, or if the results are not reviewed promptly and interpreted correctly, the window of opportunity to provide effective treatment is closed. The patient's condition may worsen or they may even die. In childbirth situations, failure to identify fetal distress or to diagnose maternal infection can result in life-changing birth injuries or death. If your family has suffered through any of these tragedies, experienced medical malpractice lawyers are on your side.
If you suspect someone was negligent in conducting tests or reviewing results, you deserve to know what happened. Contact our Los Angeles office to arrange a case evaluation. If we agree to accept your case, our lawyers and our medical director Bradford S. Davis, M.D., will review your case and share everything they uncover with you. Whether you have a medical malpractice case or not, you will have a clear explanation of the situation. If you do hire us to represent you, you can be assured that our lawyers and support staff will invest the necessary resources to present a powerful and persuasive case on your behalf.
Misdiagnosis, failure to properly diagnose or failure to properly assess an illness or injury can be attributed to a doctor, a nurse, a lab, a radiologist, or even substandard and inadequate hospital policies and procedures.
Though we all must trust medical professionals with our lives, we must also be aware the accidents occur and negligence is possible. Our lawyers know how to investigate these complex cases and we know the right experts to use in order to find the truth. Our success is revealed through the verdicts and settlements we have achieved in misdiagnosis cases and other medical malpractice lawsuits:
