Failure to Diagnose

Failed Diagnosis Attorneys Morris County, NJ

Morristown Mis-Diagnosis Lawyers help you recover compensation if your condition wasn’t diagnosed

Medical professionals are expected to apply all their skills and training to diagnose our condition. When they do not conduct the necessary tests, when they fail to take your medical history, or when they refuse to take our concerns seriously, they have failed to meet their duty of care.

As experienced medical malpractice lawyers in New Jersey, we stand up for you when a physician, hospital or nursing home has failed to diagnose your illness. We understand your anger and your fear, and we will help you understand your legal options. Most important, we at the law offices of Smith & Doran, P.C. in Morristown will work to get you the justice you want and the compensation you need.

Serious conditions often are not accurately diagnosed

How serious is a failure to diagnose? In the case of a missed diagnosis of a heart attack or stroke, even a few hours can mean the difference between life and death.

In fact, heart attacks and heart disease are commonly missed because their symptoms may mimic other conditions. However, a trained physician should know what to look for in conditions including:

  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Cervical cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Bacterial meningitis
  • Appendicitis
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Lung cancer

When a failure to accurately diagnose a condition in a timely manner has caused a condition to worsen to the point where the chance of recovery has diminished, your healthcare provider must be held responsible.

We use a network of trusted medical experts who help us build a solid failure-to-diagnose case on your behalf. We are courtroom veterans who are not afraid to litigate to get you justice. And while we understand that no amount of money can truly compensate for the harm that has been done, it can help you pay your medical expenses and support yourself and your family.
