Turn To Us When Misdiagnosis Leads To A Tragic Medical Outcome

Unreasonable errors in diagnosis or avoidable delays in reaching the correct diagnosis can result in death or disability for the patient. If you have reason to believe that misdiagnosis played an important role in the untimely death or serious injury of a loved one, contact an attorney at Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe.

Pinpointing Where The Doctor Went Wrong

Effective medical treatment typically depends on an accurate diagnosis. That in turn depends on ordering the right tests, interpreting radiology and lab reports correctly, and recognizing the signs of stroke, heart attack, cancer or infection — particularly “superbug” MRSA staph infections that are resistant to antibiotics.

Successful litigation of a misdiagnosis claim usually requires an accurate identification of the point where the doctor either had an opportunity to make the correct diagnosis based on known information, or had a professional duty to order or perform the tests that could lead to the right diagnosis.
