If you have failed to receive medical care that meets the standards that are expected of all healthcare professionals, then you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice claim. Individuals who do not receive proper medical care because their healthcare practitioners fail to detect their conditions or do not diagnose them correctly can receive financial compensation for medical bills and pain and suffering. The failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis attorneys and lawyers at Harrell & Nowak have helped victims in New Orleans, Kenner, Metairie, and nearby areas who have suffered due from these types of medical negligence.
Failure to Diagnose
Doctors and healthcare providers are expected to use their knowledge, experience, and all the resources that are available to them to determine when an individual is suffering from a medical condition or illness. The diagnosis should be made as soon as possible so that the patient can receive proper treatment before the illness or condition worsens. A medical malpractice case can be filed against a doctor if he or she fails to detect the condition or illness which another doctor could have possibly diagnosed earlier. If you or a loved one has suffered from a healthcare provider’s failure to diagnose, contact our attorneys for a thorough review of your case.
Misdiagnosis occurs when a doctor or healthcare provider diagnoses a condition or illness incorrectly. These situations can be harmful to the patient for several reasons. First, the patient’s actual disease or condition often goes untreated. Second, incorrect treatment, surgical errors, or pharmacy errors can make the individual’s condition worse or can cause a new condition to develop. Our misdiagnosis lawyers are able to help victims prove fault and secure substantial financial compensation in these cases.
