Cleveland Failure To Diagnose Attorneys
Legal Representation for Victims of Failure To Diagnose Injuries
If diagnosed soon enough, many diseases can be successfully treated before they become life-threatening. However, if a doctor fails to diagnose an illness, such as cancer, soon enough, it may be too late to save the patient’s life.
At the law firm of Dennis Seaman & Associates in Cleveland, Ohio, we offer a free consultation to families affected by a medical professional’s failure to diagnose your illness. Whether or not you hire our firm to represent you, one of our lawyers will listen to the facts of your case and explain your options.
Types of Failure To Diagnose Cases
The following are examples of life-threatening medical conditions that can be successfully treated if diagnosed and treated early enough:
- Skin cancer. If diagnosed and treated early, skin cancer is curable nearly 100 percent of the time.
- Colon cancer. If detected early through a colonoscopy test, colorectal cancer is curable.
- Breast cancer. While breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths for women, it is highly treatable if diagnosed sufficiently early.
- Infections. If not diagnosed and treated following surgery, infections can quickly become life-threatening to the patient and can result in amputations and even death.
Misdiagnosis of a patient’s medical condition can happen when a doctor fails to order standard tests or fails to recognize known symptoms of the disease. Errors can also happen when labs can misread test results or fail to report those results to doctors.
If your medical provider fails to diagnose or misdiagnoses cancer or infection at an early stage, the patient’s condition can progress rapidly. It’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to investigate what happened and preserve your right of recovery.
