Delayed diagnosis: your health at risk

When a doctor misses a diagnosis or incorrectly diagnoses a medical condition, it places your health and future well-being at risk. A delayed diagnosis is more than a mistake, it is a form of medical malpractice. If you or a loved one suffered due to a Washington, D.C., doctor's failure to correctly identify and treat a serious medical condition, you have a valid reason to pursue a civil claim.

Even with sufficient evidence and valid grounds for a medical malpractice claim, it can be quite difficult to secure compensation. The legal process is complex, and if you are basing your claim for recompense on a missed diagnosis, you need an experienced lawyer on your side. Mistakes could be debated and downplayed simply as missed judgement calls, not medical negligence.

Your Washington, D.C., lawyer must be able to connect the delay in diagnosis with the suffering that you endured. This requires extensive research, gathering important evidence and experience in countering the tactics employed by the liable party's legal counsel and insurance company. When your recovery depends on establishing proof of negligence and causation, you need experience on your side.

If you believe that you have a valid medical malpractice claim because of a delayed diagnosis, we know what you are up against. We can provide knowledgeable counsel and effective guidance regarding your legal options and the most effective path for you. We will fight for a complete recovery by seeking damages in an amount that matches your financial losses and compensates you for the pain and suffering you have endured.
