In providing diagnostic services to their patients, physicians must meet a reasonable standard of care. According to this standard, if a competent physician would have detected and properly diagnosed a condition at precisely the same stage in its progress, then the failure to do so represents an act of negligence. This negligence can serve as the foundation of a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Each medical malpractice attorney at our New York City law firm is able to handle the full range of misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose cases, including those involving cancer; nervous, vascular, and arterial disorders; infections and inflammations; brain tumors and other brain injuries; and bowel obstructions.
If you have been injured due to a healthcare professional’s inability or failure to diagnose your condition properly, you are entitled to compensation for your losses and expenses. The exact damages you are able to recover depend on the nature and extent of your injury; however, common damages in personal injury cases include compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one due to misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, you may also be entitled to compensation for funereal costs and future losses and expenses.
