Failure to Diagnose
Holding Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable in Syracuse
When we're sick, the first thing doctors are supposed to do is find out what's wrong. Until that happens, an illness or condition can't be properly treated, and a patient's health will continue to get worse. In some cases, this failure to diagnose can be life-threatening. The medical malpractice attorneys at Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC fights for the rights of patients who have not been diagnosed properly.
Failure to diagnose can occur in any medical setting. This includes doctor's offices, clinics and a hospital's emergency room. A patient comes in with certain symptoms and is diagnosed with some other condition, when they are actually suffering from something much more serious. Patients can also suffer side effects from treatment for an illness or condition they don't have.
