Doctors are obligated to provide their patients with extensive care and use everything within their power to make a proper diagnosis. However, one of the most common causes for a medical malpractice case is considered a “misdiagnosis.” If a doctor incorrectly determines the cause for symptoms, or interprets the cause incorrectly, patients can suffer prolonged pain and suffering, unnecessary medical expenses, and in extreme cases, wrongful death. The most common types of misdiagnosis are: cancer misdiagnosis and stroke misdiagnosis. It is important that you have a misdiagnosis lawyer in order to assist you through a misdiagnosis lawsuit.

If a doctor rushes to judgment they will often misdiagnose a patient and miss the presence of a more serious life-threatening condition.  Life threatening diseases, such as cancer, can worsen if misdiagnosed, which enables cancerous cells to spread. Patients who are victims of delayed cancer treatment are often unable to rid themselves of the condition because it has had time to multiply. Additionally, even if a patient successfully fights off the cancer, they must undergo much more extensive treatment, which can be mentally and physically exhausting, extremely expensive, and emotionally traumatic.

If you or someone you know had a doctor misdiagnose a condition then you may be entitled to compensantion.  Call Slater Slater Schulman LLP at (212) 481-7400 for a free consultation.
