Proving Fault in Failure to Diagnose and Misdiagnosis Claims
Medical professionals are not perfect — mistakes are made in hospitals and medical clinics on a regular basis. But, medical professionals are responsible to deliver a certain standard of care. When routine procedures are overlooked putting patients’ lives at risk, accident victims are entitled to pursue a medical malpractice claim. This is a highly complicated area of the law.
At Friday & Cox LLC, we know how to identify the difference between a medical mistake and medical negligence. We consult industry-leading experts when proving fault against doctors, nurses and other medical professionals for misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose serious medical conditions, such as:
- Breast cancer
- Lung cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Colon cancer
- Heart attack
As part of our investigation, we obtain as much evidence as possible including medical records, hospital protocols, and other relevant medical records. We also work with some of the nation’s leading medical experts to understand if a radiologist possibly failed to properly read an MRI, mammogram or CAT scan. We will seek to understand if your doctor overlooked signs of a serious illness for a less serious medical condition. Our legal team evaluates every angle possible to determine fault. We are fully prepared to develop a strong medical malpractice claim so you can secure a full financial recovery.
