Hospital, others accused of failing to provide accurate diagnosis

In Washington, D.C., just like anywhere else in the country, when an individual is having health problems and consults a physician, he or she expects to be given the proper medical care. Because most people know little about medical matters, they are forced to rely on doctors for an accurate diagnosis, trusting them to address their health issues before they become even more troublesome or fatal. One woman's estate administrator, however, was forced to file a complaint against several medical organizations and doctors, when they allegedly failed to provide an accurate diagnosis, with devastating results.

Ingalls Memorial Hospital, Advanced Heart Group S.C., Primary Healthcare Associates S.C., Rahmani Medical LLC, and several doctors have all been named as defendants in a complaint filed in Cook County Circuit Court on Jan. 13. The lawsuit alleges negligence on the part of the defendants, claiming they did not take sufficient measure to diagnose and prevent injuries. The plaintiff in the case is the administrator of the deceased patient's estate.

The patient allegedly experienced a pulmonary embolism that caused shortness of breath. The embolism contributed to the deterioration of her health. The plaintiff claims that the defendants failed to diagnose her coronary artery disease or subsequently provide essential treatment.

The plaintiff seeks a judgement in excess of $50,000 for the defendants' alleged failure to provide an accurate diagnosis. Anyone in Washington, D.C. confronting similar issues of medical negligence might benefit from contacting a lawyer. An attorney with experience in medical malpractice claims can provide counsel and representation throughout the often complicated court proceedings related to a claim of a missed diagnosis.
