Did your doctor diagnose you with the wrong condition?
Being misdiagnosed by your doctor can lead to devastating results. When you are misdiagnosed, you are not only not being treated for the condition you actually have, you are also being treated for a condition that you do not have, both of which can have a hugely detrimental effect on your health. In many cases, not being treated at all would be better than having the wrong treatment during a time when you are already unwell.
We rely on medical professionals to properly diagnose and treat our medical conditions, and if they make a mistake in diagnosis, this affects all aspects of your health care treatment. If you or a loved one has suffered illness or injury due to a misdiagnosis, contact a Los Angeles medical malpractice attorney from our firm today to discuss our case and your options. You may have a viable
medical malpractice claim. Additionally, if your loved one passed away due to the inappropriate medical treatment, you may be able to pursue a
wrongful death claim.
When a patient suffers as a result of medical negligence, it is important to pursue legal action against the responsible parties. Doing so sends a message to health care providers that they are not above reproach and need to take caution and make sure they are especially careful when the lives of their patients are in their hands. When you are the victim of a misdiagnosis, your medical bills skyrocket and you may find yourself unable to go to work as a result of your physical condition. Seeking compensation from the medical professionals responsible for this may be your only way of covering the cost of your bills and making up for your lost wages. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can help you fight your case, so that you can rest easy knowing that everything is being done to help you recover from this traumatic experience.
