Advocating For Patients Suffering From A Delayed Medical Diagnosis

Patients rely on trained medical professionals to not only cure illnesses but also to treat conditions in their early stages. A delayed diagnosis can prevent patients from receiving the prompt care that they need. Patients and their loved ones can be affected for years when this devastating situation unfolds.

If you believe your doctor or another medical professional failed to diagnose your disease in a timely fashion, contact Lipton Law. Our medical malpractice lawyers can thoroughly review your medical records to determine whether negligence occurred. We can explain the best course of action based upon the specifics of your circumstances. We may also be able to help you receive damages from a negligent doctor or another medical professional for your suffering and related losses.

Diagnosing Patients Properly And Timely

When a patient is given a delayed diagnosis of cancer or another disease or medical condition, this may be considered medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can be extremely serious and occurs when:

  • Appropriate screenings are not administered by a physician or another medical professional
  • Results from a test or biopsy are misread
  • Other factors result in incorrect assumptions, actions or inaction

Determining Fault In Delayed Diagnosis Cases

One of the tragedies of a delayed diagnosis case is that patients cannot recover the time lost to treat their condition. As their condition advances, their options may be severely limited, more invasive and, overall, less successful. We believe responsible parties should be held accountable for making this type of life-changing mistake.
