A Misdiagnosis Can Be Cause for a Lawsuit
It happens far more often than we like to think. When you consult with a medical expert you expect them to be competent to diagnose diseases and sicknesses and be able to recommend a course of treatment. However, there are doctors and medical staff that are not competent and fail to meet the minimum standards of care we expect from medical professionals.
We Hold Doctors Accountable
At the law office of Aiken & Scoptur, S.C., in Milwaukee, our misdiagnosis lawyers are committed to holding health care professionals accountable when a misdiagnosis occurs. Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose an illness can have disastrous consequences that often could have been prevented. Some common errors in diagnosis include:
- Misinterpreted lab results — These problems arise from human errors committed by lab technicians.
- Misread X-rays — Failure to notice a tumor or broken bone can have disastrous results for patients because early detection is highly important in treating disease and injury.
- Compartment injury misdiagnosis — Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a compartment injury can lead to loss of a limb.
- Delayed diagnosis — Early detection is a key to successfully treating many illnesses. If your treatment has been delayed because of doctor incompetence, call an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
