A medical malpractice lawsuit may be filed against a doctor, hospital, or any other medical professional or facility for injuries that resulted from substandard care. There are particular cases that occur more frequently than others, and at Accident Lawyers we handle these and all other types of medical malpractice and medical negligence claims.
Failure to Diagnose
If you sought medical attention and the doctor failed to diagnose your illness or injury, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. Diagnostic errors and negligence are a key part of our firm's practice, and we are committed to helping injured patients throughout the San Francisco area who have suffered as the result of a doctor's carelessness or failure to provide standard medical care. As in every other part of the medical care they provide, health care professionals have an obligation to properly diagnose a patient's condition with the tools available to them. They must use their knowledge, the patient's medical history and test results to determine what is going on and then administer the appropriate treatment. A failure to diagnose a medical condition or misdiagnosis may lead to a patient receiving the wrong treatment or being discharged when in need of immediate care. Click here to read more
