Client-Centered Results-Driven Personal Injury Firm
A failure to diagnose a disease, an injury, or other medical condition by a medical professional can lead to the problem worsening, further complications, and even death. A failure to diagnose can also involve a misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis. In these situations, the patient may lose his or her window of opportunity for treatment and recovery. If you have suffered health problems due to a failure to diagnose a serious condition, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. At Berberian Ain, LLP, our team of experienced personal injury lawyers can review your situation to determine if legal action is recommended to recover compensation on your behalf.

The Failure to Diagnose a Serious Medical Condition
Serious medical problems such as cancer, heart disease, strokes, and other illnesses generally require swift and targeted treatment protocols. The ensuing weeks or months are often critical in giving the patient the best chance for a full recovery. Should a patient be left untreated, his or her health may worsen. When the right diagnosis and treatment are finally discovered, the patient may then be limited to only a partial recovery or none at all. In the worst cases, the patient may suffer a wrongful death.
The most common of these types of cases include:
- Failure to properly diagnose a form of cancer
- Failure to properly diagnose a heart attack
- Failure to properly diagnose a stroke
Failure to Diagnose Injury Claims
These types of injury claims are often very complex legal matters. A thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of the case is required. An understanding of both medical and legal procedures is also required. Furthermore, the testimony of expert witnesses must show what should have occurred instead of what did occur in handling the patient and be able to communicate this to a judge and jury.
At Berberian Ain, LLP, we are experienced in providing skilled legal representation throughout all phases of personal injury cases. Our firm is dedicated to seeking maximum compensation for losses caused by medical malpractice and other forms of negligence.
