Diagnosing a disease early can be a matter of life and death. Even serious diseases like cancer can often be treated when they are addressed early. When a disease is misdiagnosed or not diagnosed in time, the outcome can be fatal. The stakes are particularly high in the case of triage in the emergency room. In a best-case scenario, a misdiagnosis may result in painful, long-term or invasive treatments when simple ones would have been available earlier.
Medical professionals are not omniscient, and certain mistakes are unavoidable due to incomplete information. That said, when a test or treatment is not ordered or information is not correctly interpreted when it should have been and patients are injured, it is important that the medical professional is held accountable.
If you or someone close to you has suffered a serious injury because a medical professional was careless, negligent or inattentive in diagnosis, it is important to reach out to a team of lawyers that can inform you of your rights and obtain the compensation you deserve.
