Every day, thousands of people throughout Kentucky and millions nationwide put their trust in medical professionals. They expect their physicians to know how to diagnose their health problems through a physical examination, by asking questions and when needed, through tests. If they are unsure, patients have a reasonable right and physicians have an obligation to get the opinion of a specialist or to seek answers through additional tests.
But what happens when your doctor, through negligence to their professional duty, misses or fails to correctly diagnose your disease or condition? As medical misdiagnoses attorneys, we at the Franklin Law Group believe that medical professionals — surgeons, oncologists, cardiologists, neurologists and other physicians and specialists — must be held accountable for breaking their promise to do no harm when they fail to heed warning signs, complaints of pain or unusual symptoms or to pursue all reasonable avenues of obtaining a correct diagnosis.
When your condition is not diagnosed or diagnosed incorrectly, chances are it will worsen. You may be prescribed a medication that not only does not help you, but actually causes more harm. Further, by the time the real condition is diagnosed, it may be so far advanced that a cure, reversal or remission may not be possible. As one of Louisville’s most respected medical malpractice law firms, we seek to obtain full compensation for your misdiagnosed condition.
Conditions that physicians may misdiagnose or fail to diagnose include:
If your physician’s misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a medical condition has caused you further harm, you may be able to collect damages. Learn more about how we may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve. To schedule a free consultation, please call us at 502.637.6000 or contact us online.
