Compensation For Negligent Doctor Misdiagnosis
Having your illness misdiagnosed, or being told by your doctor that there is nothing wrong, can cause you to get even sicker and possibly threaten your life. This should never happen simply because your doctor did not do their job properly. If it has, you could be entitled to full compensation for things like your subsequent medical bills and wages you lost while you were unable to work.
At Martin Law, LLC, our father-and-daughter team of experienced personal injury attorneys is capable of representing you in a claim against a doctor, a hospital or another party that negligently failed to diagnose your condition. We are one of the most respected boutique personal injury law firms in the Chicago area, with millions of dollars secured for our clients in settlements and trial verdicts.
How Failure To Diagnose Can Impact Patients
A missed diagnosis is one example of medical malpractice, which can occur when doctors fail to properly test their patients or ask them key questions when they come in for an exam. They may claim they were in a hurry or simply forgot, but whatever their excuse, there is no justification for not giving you the standard of care you deserve under Illinois law.
Consequences of negligent misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose can include:
- Undergoing treatment for a disease you do not have, often involving serious side effects
- Having your illness get worse as it goes untreated, possibly for months or years
- Once your condition is finally diagnosed properly, having to undergo more intensive treatments than you would have had your doctor made an accurate diagnosis in the first place
These experiences can cost you a great deal in lost wages and medical payments, not to mention unnecessary pain and suffering. To take on the doctor and their malpractice insurance company, you need experienced and dedicated legal representation to recover damages. We provide excellent service to each client we represent and will not settle for less than the highest amount of compensation possible.
