A Missed Or Delayed Diagnosis Can Lead To A Worsening Condition
For someone with a serious illness, timing is everything. A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can drastically set back someone’s treatment plan and ultimately their prognosis. If you or your loved one’s medical condition was misdiagnosed, obtain experienced legal counsel. This is a highly complicated area of the law. Medical mistakes do happen, but medical professionals need to be held responsible when standard procedures are overlooked putting patients’ lives at risk.

Proving Fault in Misdiagnosis Claims Throughout West Virginia
Our medical malpractice lawyers have decades of experience advocating for patients whose health worsened after their doctor failed to properly diagnose their medical condition, such as:
- Heart attack
- Breast cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Colon cancer
- Lung cancer
Every medical malpractice claim is fact-specific. Our attorneys conduct thorough investigations to determine if medical professionals put you or your loved one at risk when overlooking standard procedures. Part of our focus is to understand if your family care physician failed to take proper precaution to try and out rule a serious medical condition, instead of assuming your symptoms were signs of a less serious illness.
We can also seek to understand if your doctor tried to treat your symptoms without addressing the cause of your illness. Our legal team has experience pursuing medical malpractice claims after a mammogram, X-ray or MRI was misread. We are also fully prepared to prove fault against medical professionals who failed to perform a timely biopsy on questionable tissue or failed to order a mammogram. We have the skills and legal resources to protect your best interests whether your doctor misdiagnosed your cancer or failed to identify the signs of a looming heart attack or stroke.
