Failure to Diagnose an Illness/Injury
Louisville Medical Malpractice Attorneys
An illness or injury cannot be treated unless it is properly diagnosed, and in a timely manner. This concept may seem painfully simple, but it is one that deserves attention. A misdiagnosis (mistaking one condition for another), failure to diagnose, or delayed diagnosis can have disastrous results for a patient and his or her family. Life-saving treatment may not be given, the wrong medication may be administered, or a patient may lose precious time while the disease advances.

These are highly complex matters, and proving negligence can be exceedingly difficult. We have in-house medical staff and work with medical experts to effectively investigate and prepare our clients’ cases.
