Springfield Wrong Diagnosis Lawyers
Experienced Attorneys Accepting Catastrophic Medical Malpractice Cases
When a patient sees a doctor for medical help, the medical professional’s
job is to diagnose the patient’s illness so that he or she can treat
it. The diagnosis is the foundation upon which treatment is built. Unfortunately,
some medical professionals misdiagnose their patients, resulting in serious
medical complications. If you or someone you love suffered catastrophic
damages after a medical professional misdiagnosed your illness, contact
the Springfield misdiagnosis lawyers of Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C., today
at (417) 855-2022.
The Dangers of a Wrong Diagnosis
When a doctor or other healthcare provider misdiagnoses a patient’s
ailment, the patient may suffer unintended consequences. Since treatment
is based on the diagnosis, patients who receive the wrong diagnosis will
not receive treatment for their actual ailments. This may lead to:
- Further advancement of the illness
- Injury or complications from the wrong treatment
- Permanent disabilities
In some severe cases, patients who receive a wrong diagnosis may pass away
from their underlying illnesses due to a lack of timely treatment.
A misdiagnosis may entitle a seriously injured patient to financial compensation
for his or her injuries. Individuals who have suffered harm as a result
of a misdiagnosis are advised to seek legal counsel from a
Springfield medical malpractice lawyer.
