Failure to Diagnose an Illness

Phoenix Medical Malpractice Attorney

The failure to diagnose or delay in diagnosing an illness can result in premature death, even though early diagnosis would have provided ample time for treatment. When you discover that you are terminally ill with a disease that could have been diagnosed and treated or you have lost a loved one after a failure to diagnose or delay in diagnosis, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your loss. At the Law Offices of William D. Black, we have extensive experience in the investigation of medical malpractice claims and maximizing settlements and verdicts for clients.

The failure to diagnose or delay in diagnosis is equivalent to denying treatment of a disease. Whether tests were not properly administered, the results were incorrectly interpreted, you were not given adequate treatment options, or your diagnosis came too late, you still have rights. Contact Phoneix medical malpractice attorney Bill Black to learn more about these types of claims.

After the death of a loved one or the discovery that you are terminally ill, you may have questions about why the illness was undiscovered or left untreated. You may feel frustrated and confused if medical care was not properly administered. At the Law Offices of William D. Black, our medical malpractice attorneys are experienced in the investigation of complex medical cases and will work aggressively to answer your questions and identify all parties responsible for the failure to diagnose an illness.

Failure to diagnose can result in death or can result in permanent injuries with such illnesses as:

  • Kidney failure
  • Breast cancer
  • Intestinal cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Brain cancer
  • Other serious medical conditions

Failure to diagnose or delay in diagnosis are fairly common errors made by doctors and other medical professionals. It is possible that test results were improperly read, that adequate testing was not administered, or that doctor negligence and a hurried treatment prevented an illness or disease from being identified. When you and your family need answers, our firm will aggressively take on your case. We will collect all necessary evidence, consult with witnesses, review hospital and medical records, and confer with medical experts who can testify to the potential negligence in your case or claim.
