Victims Of Misdiagnosis Should Take Legal Action
We are fortunate to live in a country with the best medical care in the world. Every day, doctors, EMTs, lab techs and ER personal make vital diagnoses, which help patients and injury victims to heal and recover. In many instances lives are saved. As medical professionals, these individuals are held to a high level of responsibility when it comes to making proper diagnoses. And they must be, because other lives depend on it. So when misdiagnosis occurs and a patient suffers further injuries or dies, it is time to take legal action.
At The Townsley Law Firm, we help injured patients and family members bring medical misdiagnosis lawsuits in order to recover rightful compensation. The settlements and verdicts we win are critical in helping our clients address further medical costs, lost wages due to an inability to work, pain and suffering, and in some cases the devastating loss of a loved one.
Delayed, Late And Incorrect Diagnosis Happens With Many Illnesses
Misdiagnosis can take many forms, and our lawyers can address them all. Sometimes a heart attack may be misdiagnosed as heartburn. In other cases, a doctor may misread X-rays or vital tests. We have also seen lab technicians who make errors when analyzing specimens.
Commonly misdiagnosed illnesses, injuries and conditions include:
- Bone fractures
- Brain injuries
- Heart attack
