Patients anticipate they will always receive competent care from their healthcare professionals, which includes an accurate assessment of any health problems, and a plan for the right course of treatment based on the patient’s condition. When doctors and hospitals fail to provide a proper or accurate diagnosis, or fail to properly care for underinsured or Medicaid patients, there may be grave consequences for patients and their families. Unintentional mistakes do occur within healthcare facilities and can lead to undiagnosed health problems or misdiagnosis of treatable diseases, like cancer, heart attacks, asthma, staph infection or stroke.
If a doctor or healthcare facility failed to make an accurate or timely diagnosis of your or a family member’s condition, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. The attorneys at Parsons Behle & Latimer led by Charles Thronson are experienced in determining whether you have a case, and working on your behalf to recover economic damages.
