Alabama Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fight for You
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 Alabama medical malpractice attorney in these types of cases is critical. Since 1958, Cunningham Bounds has worked to uphold the rights of our clients in cases such as these, and powerfully advocates for the results deserved.

Types of Misdiagnosis
It is important to discuss the specifics of your situation with a skilled attorney who can help you pursue the compensation you need during this difficult time.
Misdiagnosis typically takes place in one of two ways:
The condition is completely undiagnosed.
The condition is incorrectly diagnosed.
An example of the first would be that a patient regularly visits their physician with health problems and the physician doesn’t diagnose their illness, such as cancer. An example of the second would be that a patient visits their physician with health problems and the physician says they have a sprain when they actually have a fracture.
