Medical Misdiagnosis

Medical misdiagnoses often occur due to the haste of medical professionals to arrive at a diagnosis under less than optimal conditions, such as those often made in emergency rooms.  Whatever the circumstance, however, physicians are expected to provide their patients with diligent, attentive care, and when their failure to do so results in a faulty diagnosis, they may be held liable for any injuries that result.  Of course, certain conditions do not present obvious symptoms, particularly in their earliest stages; not all misdiagnoses, therefore, are grounds for a lawsuit.  However, when a medical professional misdiagnoses a common condition with symptoms that would normally be identified by a competent peer, legal action may be taken.

Delayed Diagnosis

If a diagnosis is made correctly but in an untimely manner, the patient can still suffer injuries or complications stemming from a lack of treatment. At David Horowitz, PC, -convenient to Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens – a New York City medical malpractice and negligence attorney can help you recover monetary compensation for injuries, hospital bills, and emotional distress. Additionally, it may also be possible to seek punitive damages from the healthcare provider, particularly if the delayed diagnosis can be shown to have resulted from gross medical negligence.

Many medical conditions become increasingly worse as time goes on if they are not treated. For example, it is extremely important that a cancer diagnosis be made at the earliest possible stage in order to give the patient the best chance of survival. If you have lost a loved one because he or she was diagnosed too late to receive effective treatment, you can file a claim against the liable parties. In the event that you or a loved one has been significantly harmed by a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, contact a New York City medical negligence attorney today.
