Seeking Compensation For Failed Diagnoses
Doctors have a duty to their patients to provide them with a certain level of care. When a medical professional does not meet that level of care and fails to properly diagnose a patient, it can cause devastating consequences, and the hospital needs to be held accountable for its actions.
At Mahoney Law, PLLC, we can help you seek justice after a doctor or other medical professional’s negligence or recklessness harms you. We know what is at stake in malpractice claims, and we want to see you earn the fair and full compensation you need to cover all of the consequences of your injury.
How These Accidents Happen
The longer a disease, injury or illness goes without getting an accurate diagnosis, the more harmful it can become, even developing into a fatal situation. There are many factors that can cause a misdiagnosis, including:
- Inexperienced medical professionals – If a doctor does not have the thorough education necessary to identify common illnesses, it can cause them to ignore the signs of a diagnosis entirely.
- Faulty testing equipment – If the testing devices that staff use to confirm your health are not running properly, it can cause a doctor to believe that there is nothing wrong with you when there actually is.
- Lack of time with a patient – When a doctor chooses to rush through an appointment, it can cause them to miss vital information necessary for an accurate diagnosis.
