Compensation for Medical Misdiagnosis

When patients are injured by negligent health care providers, they have the right to bring medical malpractice actions to hold them responsible. Our team at Bostwick & Peterson has handled malpractice claims for decades and knows how to investigate these claims and prove negligence.

While a personal review of your case is needed to determine if you have grounds to bring legal action, the general issue in misdiagnosis claims is proving whether a provider failed to act in a manner expected of a reasonably skilled provider in their field under the same or similar circumstances.

Negligence in misdiagnosing a patient can take many forms. Examples include:

It is important to pursue legal action against the responsible parties. Doing so sends a message to health care providers that they are obligated to meet the standard of care. A successful claim can also help victims recover compensation for:

  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium / companionship
  • Other damages.

Seeking compensation from the medical professionals responsible for your losses may be the only way to cover the cost of your bills and making up for your lost wages. An experienced attorney from our team can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
