Misdiagnosis and Failure to Diagnose

Arizona Doctor Misdiagnosis Attorneys

If a Condition Isn’t Caught, It Can’t be Fixed

When a person seeks medical attention, they expect the doctor to address their concerns appropriately. Unfortunately, doctors make mistakes like failing to properly diagnose a medical condition.

Left untreated due to doctor misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, a medical condition can quickly go from treatable to untreatable. A patient with a good prognosis can suddenly face serious illness.

At the Arizona law firm of Beale, Micheaels, Slack & Shughart, we take on medical malpractice cases like these. We get compensation for victims of physician error.

Over $140 Million Recovered in the Last Decade Alone: This total includes $2.7 million recovered for the failure to diagnose cervical cancer, $1.5 million recovered for failure to diagnose colon cancer, and $1 million for a woman who, due to doctor misdiagnosis of breast cancer, suffered a serious reduction in life expectancy. Our results speak for themselves.

What Type of Medical Condition Does Your Case Involve?

Our lawyers can handle cases involving any medical condition that was made worse due to doctor misdiagnosis. Common conditions include:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Colon Cancer
  • Heart Attacks

  • Meningitis and Infections

We will bring in the appropriate medical experts to help us explain to the jury how a doctor’s misdiagnosis affected your health.

The Reasons Why Doctor Misdiagnosis Happens

Unfortunately, in many cases, misdiagnosis comes down to economics. The tests that are required to diagnose conditions are expensive and time-consuming.

Misdiagnosis may result if a doctor decides not to conduct an X-ray, MRI, CT scan, ultrasound or other critical test that could have easily revealed the medical condition.

Of course, that isn’t the only reason for doctor misdiagnosis. Even if the proper tests are ordered, a doctor may misread them.
