Failure To Diagnose

Did A Doctor’s Delay Result In Injury Or Death?

Failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis and misdiagnosis are all serious issues in the U.S. Such a mistake can turn a reversible medical condition into a permanent or fatal problem.

If you suffered unnecessarily or someone you love died because a medical provider failed to diagnose the condition in time, you may feel betrayed and alone. However, you don’t have to confront the medical system on your own — attorney Steven J. Weinberg is here to fight on your behalf. With close to four decades of experience and a stellar record of results, he has the skill you need to resolve cases involving:

  • Delayed diagnosis — One of the primary duties of a medical professional or doctor is to properly identify your condition.
  • Failure to diagnose cancer — Doctors have an ethical and professional responsibility to identify the early warning signs of cancer, and a patient’s chances of surviving cancer is directly linked to the time that the diagnosis was made.
  • Failure to diagnose heart conditions — As with cancer, a prompt and accurate diagnosis is critical to the patient’s well-being.
  • Failure to diagnose stroke — Permanent brain injury, paralysis or even death can result from this type of error.
  • Misdiagnosis — The results of a misdiagnosis by a radiologist, a physician or another professional can be life-threatening.
