Failures in diagnosing life-threatening or injurious conditions do not always begin and end with primary care physicians. Specialists, ER doctors, surgeons, nurses, clinicians and psychiatrists also hold responsibility for properly diagnosing serious conditions, including:
Missteps in diagnosing these conditions can have serious, life-altering consequences. Patients may experience excruciating pain, paralysis, extended treatment and life-threatening complications if medical professionals fail to diagnose serious conditions.

Hospitals, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are required to uphold standards of care, and they are required to treat conditions in a timely manner. If the proper tests are not run, treatments administered or surgeries performed in time, complications may not be reversible.
We dig through medical records, analyze hospital protocols and staffing records, and examine the events leading up to the incident or incidents that caused serious injury to our clients. We collaborate with medical experts through complicated investigations to determine whether earlier intervention could have changed the outcome.
The timeframe to file a medical malpractice claim is very limited. A strict statute of limitations governs how long you have to bring a claim. Typically it stands at four years. Exceptions are medical death case, which stand at three years, and cases involving children, which have longer and varied timeframes.
Conditions can develop over time, so if you have symptoms later on such as a foreign object left behind in your body during surgery (it happens more than you might guess), it is important to take quick action.
We work aggressively and thoroughly on your behalf. We will fight for the compensation you deserve. Contact us as soon as possible at 651-JUSTICE (651-587-8423).
