Failure to Diagnose / Improper Diagnosis
Failure to Diagnose an Illness Happens More Often than You Think
Experienced attorneys protecting Kentucky victims of an improper or missed diagnosis
CPW Law strives to help victims of delayed and improper diagnoses. Our team of attorneys, registered nurses and staff works one on one with clients. We have secured millions of dollars for our clients in jury verdicts and in settlements, money that can be used to help pay for continued care and other expenses.
Commonly misdiagnosed medical conditions
There are many reasons why a doctor may fail to diagnose an illness correctly or efficiently. If the wrong test is ordered, or if a patient presents with symptoms that fit two conditions, leading to an incorrect diagnosis, a patient’s condition can be exacerbated by the delay in diagnosis. At CPW Law, we have experience with cases involving:
- Failure to diagnose cancer, including breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, lymphoma, melanoma and sarcomas
- Failure to diagnose heart conditions, such as a heart attack
- Failure to diagnose a stroke
- Failure to diagnose an infection, including sepsis and strep
- Failure to diagnose a bowel leak
- Failure to diagnose bleeding
These are but a few of the types of cases we have successfully resolved through jury trials or settlement negotiations. We are happy to discuss the full breadth or our experience during a consultation, to help assure you that choosing CPW Law is the right decision.
