Medical Misdiagnosis Cases

Have you been misdiagnosed?

The misdiagnoses of medical conditions by doctors or other medical professionals are responsible for countless injuries, illnesses, and deaths every year. A misdiagnosis can occur for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Failing to order proper testing for a patient
  • Failing to recognize and treat all of the symptoms
  • Improperly interpreting test results
  • Poor follow-up with patients following the initial diagnosis and/or treatment
  • Failing to identify an underlying disease

A medical professional who harms another due to a misdiagnosis can be held liable for the damages the victim sustains, including further medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

At Weinstein & Scharf, P.A., one of our top priorities is protecting the rights of those victimized by medical malpractice. We understand that the consequences of a medical error can be devastating, especially in cases where the patient is misdiagnosed. Our goal is to secure maximum monetary compensation for the victim, so that they can address their injury or illness without experiencing significant financial hardship. Contact a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer at our firm if you have been victimized by a misdiagnosis, and we will establish who is responsible in an attempt to recover damages in your case.

The Dangers of Misdiagnosis

Misdiagnosis is one of the most dangerous forms of medical malpractice. A doctor who diagnoses a healthy person with a disease or condition may prescribe medication that causes irreversible harm in that person. Similarly, failing to diagnose a condition, or diagnosing the wrong condition, may result in a delay in proper treatment for the person. A medical practitioner who has committed such an egregious example of negligence should be held fully liable for any damages that a patient suffers as a result.
