For many people, the key to surviving and conquering a disease involves starting treatment right away. Some disease, like cancer, can be life threatening if left untreated for too long. Receiving the right treatment depends on receiving a proper diagnosis. When you have been misdiagnosed by a medical professional, you may experience serious harm or even death.

We work in West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie, and other local communities.

Generally, misdiagnosis includes a failure on the part of a physician to properly identify a disease. To be actionable in a Florida court of law, the failure of the physician to properly diagnose the disease must result in an injury or in a progression of the disease beyond that which would have resulted from a proper and timely diagnosis. Under Florida law, if you have suffered injury from a misdiagnosis, you are entitled to compensation.
When the doctor makes a wrong diagnosis, if it causes you serious injury, you may have a claim. You trust the doctor on the hospital to do what’s right, to take care of your medically and when there’s a tragedy that occurs, when something goes wrong, where do you turn? Only an experienced attorney can investigate and find out what happened. Did the doctor do something wrong? Did the doctor make a simple mistake? Did the doctor fall below the standard of care? That’s a medical term that protects doctors and hospitals. Only the experienced lawyer can do the investigation to find out what actually happened. Find out if you do have a case. We’ve been doing that for decades. Call us.
