Failure to Diagnose
Medical malpractice can take many forms. The Florida medical malpractice lawyers at Colling Gilbert Wright have years of experience in this field, which means we recognize how malpractice can manifest and hurt innocent people. One of the foremost examples is a failure to diagnose.
Diagnosis is, obviously, at the heart of medicine. A delayed diagnosis results in delayed treatment, and for many patients, those delays can prove devastating.
If you live in the state of Florida and you want to speak to our experienced medical malpractice lawyers, please call Colling Gilbert Wright today at (407) 712-7300 for a free consultation.
Illnesses and conditions that are commonly misdiagnosed or simply not diagnosed at all include:
- Prostate cancer
- Lung cancer
- Heart attacks
It’s undoubtedly true that the diagnosis of major medical conditions is a difficult task. The law recognizes this and doesn’t say that every misdiagnosis qualifies as medical malpractice.
However, medical professionals are expected to meet certain standards of care during diagnosis. If they behave negligently during the diagnostic process and fail to act as a reasonable medical professional would, you might suffer significant injuries as a result. Our Florida medical malpractice lawyers will help you in this difficult situation.
