Failure to Diagnose

Protecting Patients' Rights When Diagnostic Errors Have Been Made

In some cases, a doctor's failure to diagnose an injury or illness may cause no additional harm to a patient. But in other cases, a delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis can worsen a patient's condition, prolonging recovery or resulting in permanent damage.

When you have suffered injury because your doctor failed to diagnosis your condition, you probably want to know what went wrong. In these cases, it is important to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney to discuss your legal options.

When you come to Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., in New York City, we can help you investigate what went wrong and get you and your family the answers you deserve. With more than 40 years of experience, our failure to diagnose attorneys are equipped to handle a wide range of medical negligence claims, including those involving errors in failing to properly diagnose.

Determining How Your Diagnosis Was Missed

You have questions that need to be answered. It is difficult getting doctors, nurses and other health care providers to admit that they made a mistake.

Failure to diagnose can occur with any illness or injury, but it is especially damaging when it occurs in conjunction with:

  • Diabetes and heart conditions such as heart attacks, coronary artery disease and hypertension
  • Cancer, including lung cancer, breast cancer, skin cancer, cervical cancer, uterine cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, testicular cancer and brain tumors
  • Improperly read mammograms or Pap smears
  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Infections

Our attorneys will help you find out why the doctor failed to properly diagnose your condition. In particular, we will closely examine whether your doctor:

  • Asked the right questions
  • Listened to you
  • Properly examined you
  • Adequately considered all possibilities before jumping to a conclusion
  • Ordered the appropriate tests

Contact Our New York Office for Help You Can Trust

Not all cases involving delayed diagnosis or a failure to diagnose result in a medical malpractice claim. However, when a doctor has failed to properly follow the appropriate standard of care and missed a diagnosis causing serious injury or death, that is a medical negligence.
