What Happens When A Diagnosis Is Wrong Or Made Too Late
Every year, millions of us across Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia go to doctors seeking a diagnosis. We trust our doctors with our care. When doctors fail to timely diagnose the right illness, many of us will needlessly suffer or some may die from undiagnosed or untreated illnesses. A recent Johns Hopkins study found that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in America.
Failure to diagnose illness has lifelong ramifications. If you or a loved one has been misdiagnosed, call our law firm. At Massa Butler Giglione, we have dedicated our careers to obtaining money compensation for those needlessly injured by medical errors or misdiagnosis. Our attorneys and staff have the medical and legal knowledge to pursue your claim.
How Critical Diagnosis Errors Impact Health
There are many ways to find medical errors in diagnosis, but some are difficult to spot. Diagnosing the wrong condition, failing to timely make the right diagnosis, or misstating the severity of the illness are some of the ways. If you or a loved one experience:
- Severe worsening of symptoms
- Prolonged pain
- Unusual side-effects from medications
- Unexplained symptoms or death
You may have been misdiagnosed by medical error. Our highly experienced attorneys and staff are trained to spot medical errors and to determine if you have a claim that may be eligible for money compensation. If you have a claim, Massa Butler Giglione will cover the costs to pursue your claim and only recover those costs if money is paid to you.
