Delay in Diagnosing Life Threatening Conditions

Miami, West Palm Beach, Ft Lauderdale, Florida

Even the slightest delay in diagnosing a life threatening condition can result in a painful and unnecessary death. Sadly, a failure to diagnose deadly diseases on conditions is one of the most common types of medical negligence.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a life threatening condition after numerous failures to rightly diagnose, you may have a right to seek compensation for medical treatments, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If you lose a loved one to a delay in diagnosis, you may have a right to seek compensation with a lawsuit addressing wrongful death as a result of medical malpractice. In either case, our medical malpractice attorneys can fight for your rights and work to see that justice is served.

Fatal Delayed Diagnosis

Life threatening diseases and conditions that too frequently remain undiagnosed include:

  • Cancer
  • Heart attack or failure
  • Clogged arteries
  • Aortic dissection
  • Infection

This is, of course, far from an exhaustive list. Any fatal disease can face a delay in diagnosis when medical staff act negligently and fail to provide you with the care you deserve. While it is often too late to recover once a diagnosis is made with a fatal condition, it is not too late to hold the responsible parties accountable and seek justice for the victims of this type of medical malpractice.
