Medical Mistakes & Diagnosis Errors
Patients place a great deal of trust in their doctors. In some cases, they
must put their life into their doctor's hands. While there are many
excellent doctors, there are others who do not take enough time to listen
to their patients' complaints, and who rush through visits and simply
fail to give their patients the appropriate level of care. When a doctor
fails to diagnose a medical condition, the patient's condition can
worsen. If a doctor fails to order the appropriate tests or delays in
referring them to a specialist, their medical condition could be missed.
Common conditions that doctors fail to diagnose include:
- Diabetic reactions
- Heart attack / stroke
- Lyme disease
If your medical condition was exacerbated by your doctor’s negligent
mistakes, you may have grounds to file a medical malpractice claim. The
same is true if your loved one has died as a result of a delayed diagnosis.
Don’t wait to seek the justice, and fair compensation, that you
deserve. We have already
recovered millions of dollars in compensation for victims of medical malpractice, and we are ready to
do the same for you! Contact our firm now to discuss your case with a
personal injury attorney in Charleston. You don’t pay unless we

can mean the difference between life and death. Regardless of the reason
for the failure to diagnose a medical condition, a patient can suffer
irreparable harm, and in worse cases, death. The cost of compensating
the patient can be overwhelming, especially when he or she still has medical
treatment to pursue. If you are a victim of medical malpractice, contact
