Medical Misdiagnosis Is Compensable Negligence

When you have a medical concern, you entrust health care professionals to provide an accurate and timely diagnosis. A proper diagnosis can lead to effective treatment and improved health. A failure to properly diagnose, however, wastes your time and your money and, most importantly, may even put your very life at risk.

Failure to diagnose a patient can be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. At Spicer, Olin & Associates, P.C., we have been serving clients in personal injury cases throughout Virginia for over 30 years. Our experienced attorneys understand the nuances of medical malpractice cases and know what crucial steps need to be taken to help you get the financial compensation you deserve.

You Deserve Proper Treatment

The smallest error by your practitioner or doctor can have grave effects. It may be that your physician failed to recognize blood test results, such as your white blood cell count. An improper scan or misuse of equipment could also lead to a misdiagnosis. Common failure-to-diagnose case types include the following:

  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Cancer
  • Sepsis
  • Celiac disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Infection

Unfortunately for the victim of medical misdiagnosis, the burden of proof for malpractice falls on them. But a lawyer with an extensive background in personal injury, such as ours at Spicer, Olin & Associates, P.C., can ease your legal burdens and represent your legal interests to the fullest.
