Misdiagnosis

We all place a tremendous amount of trust in the knowledge, experience and judgment of our doctors and other healthcare providers. However, despite the high regard we have for them, these professionals are not infallible and from time-to-time make a misdiagnosis, which can be a failure to diagnose or an untimely diagnosis. Unfortunately, these errors in judgment can carry serious and potentially life-threatening consequences.  

These cases are complicated by the fact that the law limits the amount of time you have to file a claim even though you may not discover the misdiagnosis for a long time.  Therefore, working with an experienced personal injury lawyer in these types of cases is critical. Speak with one of our medical malpractice lawyers today.
