A Misdiagnosis Can Cause Great Harm | Contact An Attorney For A Free Case Evaluation

Your doctor's failure to diagnose your cancer or other serious illness in a timely manner may have had serious consequences. You may have incurred excessive, unnecessary expenses such as more surgery and more time off work. Worse, your life may have been shortened because of medical malpractice. A consultation with an attorney is the next important step after you have suspected that a misdiagnosis may have occurred.

A well-investigated and well-documented injury claim or lawsuit may enable you to collect compensation. Dollars will not replace your loss of quality of life — or your loss of time left to live. But money can help you and your family cope with the consequences of a misdiagnosis.

  • It may have been an emergency room visit where a doctor failed to diagnose your stroke or heart attack in a timely manner — and the outcome has caused great harm.
  • It may have been a slowly developing illness such as breast cancer or lung cancer, compounded by communication gaps involving a diagnostic laboratory, a medical clinic and your doctor.

Whatever the explanation for the misdiagnosis, late diagnosis or failure to diagnose your medical condition, you should talk to a lawyer and ask for a case review.

Bilingual lawyers at Burgos & Burgos can review the facts of your case and determine whether there is enough evidence to substantiate a medical malpractice claim. A successful claim could bring you financial resources to soften the harsh realities you face after a misdiagnosis.
