When an injury or illness occurs, we put our trust in the medical professionals we believe to do what is best for us and make a proper diagnosis to get our health back on track. During this time, making an improper diagnosis can have catastrophic results. If you believe that something could have been done, or done differently, to prevent the unfortunate outcome, you should speak with one of our medical malpractice attorneys at the Eltringham Law Group.
Every situation is unique and requires a thorough analysis of the facts before determining if a legal case should be pursued. Our personal injury attorneys have the experience to do just that. If it is determined that a misdiagnosis is what led to further complications, you may be entitled to compensation as a result of medical malpractice.
Determining that a doctor or other healthcare provider has misdiagnosed or failed to diagnose a condition that led to serious injury, illness or death can be difficult at best. It must be proven that the diagnosis failure led to the subsequent harm. It must also be shown that the medical provider’s actions did not meet a standard minimum level of care. Every failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis by a medical professional does not constitute medical malpractice.
We offer free consultations, during which one of our experienced personal injury lawyers will discuss the details of your case with you and will provide you with guidance on how best to proceed. If it is determined that you have a valid medical malpractice case and you want us to represent you, we don’t require any money up front. We don’t get paid until you receive a settlement.
What to Expect In the Event of a Misdiagnosis
When you choose the Eltringham Law Group to represent you following a medical misdiagnosis, here is what you can expect to happen:
- We offer free consultations so you can get all your questions answered and can spend time talking directly with an experienced attorney about your rights and expected outcomes.
- Leave all the work to us. We will be in contact with doctors, hospitals, witnesses, insurance providers, police, attorneys and anyone else necessary to settle your claim. We will thoroughly investigate, and will build a solid case so that you are more likely to be awarded additional compensation from insurance companies or other parties.
- You focus on you. Whether you are still recovering from injuries or dealing with the stress and anxiety, now is the time to focus on your own needs while you leave the details of your case in the hands of experienced attorneys that will get the job done right.
- We work on a contingent fee basis. This means that you don’t need to lay out any money up front in order to have our injury attorneys work on your case. We don’t get paid unless we recover a financial settlement or jury award for you.
