Delayed Diagnosis or Misdiagnosis

Being diagnosed with an illness is very scary. Many patients and their families choose to focus on the good news: prognosis for recovery looks good, and you can continue to live a healthy life. However, when the diagnosis comes too late or is originally wrong, the prognosis for a full recovery is often diminished.

When detected and diagnosed in a timely manner, many health conditions are treatable and can be beat. When not diagnosed in a timely manner, the sad truth is that patients die too soon, leaving families reeling with a significant and profound loss. Musleh Law Firm, in Ocala, Florida, is here to help if your life has been changed in any way by a delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis.

Did your doctor fail to diagnose you with cancer, an infection, heart attack or stroke? Talk to our law firm today about your rights and options. Call us for a free consultation at 352-484-0134. Medical malpractice claims are all handled on a contingency basis, which means we do not receive attorney fees or costs unless we recover compensation on your behalf.

WAS THE DIAGNOSIS TOO LATE?

Our attorneys have access to a network of resources and medical professionals who guide us in determining where the error occurred. In our experience, we have found that many delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis involve:

  • Cancer, including breast cancer, skin cancer and prostate cancer
  • Heart attack and stroke
  • Infection, including post-surgical infection

When diagnosis is delayed, the patient is essentially denied life-saving medical treatment. When misdiagnosis occurs, the patient may receive treatment for the wrong problem, thus exacerbating the real cause of the illness even further.

In whatever way a diagnosis or misdiagnosis has affected your life, you can trust that our law firm has the resources and determination to seek justice on your behalf.
