Common Types of Misdiagnosis Cases
Misdiagnosis of a medical condition can occur in a number of scenarios. In some cases, doctors fail to order tests that would have given clear warning signs that a serious medical condition existed. In others, they perform such tests but overlook the warning signs. In some cases, they make a diagnosis, but it is incorrect.
We handle a wide range of misdiagnosis cases, including those involving:
- Misdiagnosis of cancer
- Misdiagnosis of heart disease
- Misdiagnosis of meningitis
- Misdiagnosis of diabetes
Our skilled Pittsburgh misdiagnosis attorneys will carefully investigate your case to determine how misdiagnosis contributed to your injury. We work with medical experts who help us investigate cases and build compelling cases for our clients. We will do everything in our power to help you obtain compensation for the losses you have suffered.
Consequences of Medical Misdiagnosis
No matter what the medical condition is, a misdiagnosis could result in very costly medical bills. If the misdiagnosis results in death, then family members may be obligated to pay for end-of-life expenses and struggle financially due to missing family income. All of these damages, costs and more can be sought in a successfully navigated Pennsylvania medical malpractice claim.
