From our office in Denver, Colorado, our attorney provides comprehensive misdiagnosis and medical malpractice representation to clients throughout the surrounding areas. We strive to thoroughly investigate the situation to determine where the mistakes were made that led to the misdiagnosis of your condition. Below are some situations in which a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose may be common.
Failure to Diagnose Cancer
Though receiving a cancer diagnosis is no longer a death sentence, failing to properly and timely diagnose cancer can lead to the death of the patient - when the correct diagnosis could have saved his or her life. Our firm is committed to helping clients understand their rights when the have received a cancer misdiagnosis. This can include the diagnosis of the wrong type of cancer, the diagnosis of cancer when the condition is actually not cancer, and the failure to diagnose cancer when cancer is present.
Misdiagnosis of a Stroke or Heart Attack
A medical emergency, such as a stroke or heart attack, warrants special, immediate attention from medical staff to ensure that the situation is properly addressed and mitigated. The wrong diagnosis in a situation where a patient is suffering from a stroke or heart attack can lead to lasting side effects - such as paralysis or damaged heart tissue - along with the possible wrongful death of the patient.
Other types of medical conditions may be prone to misdiagnosis as well. To discuss your case in which you think a misdiagnosis lead to your injuries, contact a lawyer at our firm today. We can be reached by calling 303-872-5712, by e-mail, or by filling out the intake form on our Contact page.
