Medical Misdiagnosis Negligence
There are many reasons that a condition might be misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all. A medical provider is only negligent when the signs and symptoms would lead a reasonable doctor to make a proper and timely diagnosis. This standard of care is based upon the training, skill, and specialty of the physician. We will get all of your medical records and have them reviewed by a physician to see if a doctor committed a medical mistake in your treatment. If we can prove that you were the victim of negligence, we will file a medical malpractice lawsuit for you.
