Misdiagnosis and Failure to Diagnose
Sadly, a misdiagnosis or a doctor's failure to diagnose an illness or disease can be a death sentence for the patient. In many cases, even one additional test could have pointed the doctor in the right direction. We work to see that a death from a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose does not go unnoticed, especially if the disease was cancer, a heart attack or stroke.
Emergency Room Deaths
Emergency rooms are notoriously busy places. However, even if they are busy, they are still held to an extremely high standard of patient care. If doctors are overwhelmed, understaffed or overworked, and patients are left unattended or untreated, it can lead to a patient's death. Emergency room errors are extremely serious and our firm is committed to holding the negligent parties responsible.
