Misdiagnosis We Do What We Say We'll Do

Misdiagnosis Attorneys in New Castle

A Misdiagnosis Can Have Catastrophic Effects

The signs were there. When doctors misread test results, fail to follow up on telltale clues or come to the wrong conclusions, the results can be devastating. A lawsuit can’t turn back the clock, but it can hold physicians and hospitals accountable. It can provide for the necessary care and lost income, or compensate grieving family members for their loss.

The law firm of Luxenberg Garbett Kelly & George has successfully resolved cases where misdiagnosis was proven to have resulted from medical negligence and malpractice. Our trial lawyers have secured verdicts and settlementsfor clients who suffered lasting disability or whose loved one died because treatment came too late.

The Tragedy of Medical Misdiagnosis in Pennsylvania

Failure to diagnose a serious illness or treatable condition robs the patient of a chance to receive timely treatment, especially in the case of a cancer misdiagnosis. A physician error leading to a false cancer diagnosis, on the other hand, can result in unnecessary surgery (e.g., mastectomy) or painful radiation or chemotherapy — and delays treatment for the real medical problem.

Our malpractice attorneys are adept at uncovering the truth. We obtain medical reports, including results of lab tests, and have them examined by a forensic nurse. If malpractice is indicated, we have the case certified by a medical expert in oncology, radiology or the appropriate field of medicine.

We have handled a full range of medical misdiagnosis claims, including failure to:

  • Diagnose heart attack, blood clots or embolisms
  • Spot tumors on an X-ray, MRI or CT scan
  • Diagnose meningitis and other deadly infections
  • Order additional tests
  • Get a second opinion or refer the patient before an operation or aggressive treatment

A misdiagnosis can occur even when all proper tests are performed accurately or evaluated by a skilled doctor with the utmost care. A misdiagnosis becomes malpractice, however, if the doctor fails to get a medical history, order the appropriate tests or recognize observable symptoms of the illness.
