Did a misdiagnosed condition cause your disease to progress and worsen?

 

As Louisville misdiagnosis attorneys, we have seen the harm caused by failure to diagnose results. Talk to our Louisville radiology error attorneys.

 

Conditions that physicians may misdiagnose or fail to diagnose include:

 

  • Cancer – Your doctor may be liable for a misdiagnoses lawsuit if he or she fails to perform regular prostate, breast or cervical examinations; misinterprets or does not recognize symptoms; fails to perform a biopsy of abnormal tissue; misinterprets test results that detect a malignancy or fails to take immediate action when test results are abnormal.
  • Coronary heart disease –If you are diabetic, hypertensive, a smoker or have a family history of heart disease, you should be screened regularly for coronary problems. If you present with chest, arm, back or shoulder pain, if you feel faint, lightheaded, nauseous or are experiencing shortness of breath, you may be having a heart attack. If your doctor dismissed these symptoms as anxiety, overexertion or indigestion and fails to administer tests and treatments, that physician may have missed a heart attack that could cause permanent damage — or even wrongful death.
  • Stroke – According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) a stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Symptoms include weakness or paralysis on one side of the body, complete or partial loss of the ability to speak or understand speech, or loss of sensation or motor skills. A physician who missed these symptoms may have failed to diagnose a potentially fatal stroke, and may be liable for a misdiagnoses lawsuit.
