A Misdiagnosis Reveals Misplaced Trust

You may have experienced a medical calamity after a doctor or diagnostic laboratory misdiagnosed a serious illness or condition. Misdiagnosis can rob a patient of precious time and the opportunity for successful treatment. Some patients become seriously ill, end up disabled or lose their lives because medical professionals fail to diagnose their illnesses accurately and on time for them to have the best chance for recovery.

Did you go to the emergency room complaining of chest pains, only to be sent home — and then suffered a heart attack shortly thereafter? Did you have symptoms of meningitis or a stroke that were ignored by your attending physician — with disastrous results? Did your appendix erupt after a doctor ignored symptoms? Contact the New York medical malpractice lawyers at Caesar, Napoli & Spivak PLLC, to explore your legal options. You may have grounds to file a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit.

The Line Between Mistake And Negligence

When is "failure to diagnose" an excusable oversight, and when is it negligence? A careful investigation into the facts of your case will shed light on this important question. If you lost out on the opportunity to obtain timely treatment for a disease or medical condition because of the neglectful actions of doctors or diagnostic professionals, you should explore the possibility of filing a claim for compensation.
