Misdiagnosis And Failure To Diagnose

Any successful course of medical treatment begins with a correct and timely diagnosis. Because the diagnosis dictates the patient's entire course of treatment, failure to correctly or timely diagnose a medical condition can dramatically exacerbate the underlying medical issue. What may have been easily curable might now be potentially fatal.

In some cases, unnecessary treatment — including surgery, medication or therapy — can cause additional problems on top of the misdiagnosed condition. Each instance of medical treatment introduces new opportunities for medical errors and negligence.

At Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante, P.C., we have been fighting for victims of medical malpractice, including misdiagnosis, for more than 60 years. We help patients who have been harmed by diagnostic errors, including:

  • Misdiagnosis — mistaking a condition or injury for another
  • Delayed diagnosis — failing to properly diagnose a condition or injury in time to perform an appropriate course of medical treatment

Committed To Your Recovery

Proving that a physician failed to properly diagnose a condition can be difficult without the benefit of skilled and experienced representation. Medical evidence is highly complex and physicians and hospitals are often reluctant to provide evidence that illustrates their failings. To level the playing field, we call upon a highly qualified group of medical experts practicing across the United States.

Our firm understands how to secure the evidence necessary to build a strong medical malpractice case against physicians, clinics and hospitals. Drawing on extensive experience, our attorneys have the depth of knowledge to effectively review and analyze medical records. We will find any evidence of deviations from the accepted standards of care to which a physician is required to adhere.
