Misdiagnosis or Failure-to-Diagnose

Were you given the wrong diagnosis? Did your family doctor incorrectly dismiss your physical symptoms and complaints? A doctor’s misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious ailment or illness can be devastating. These mistakes can leave you with endless questions that can never truly be answered. At Kanoski Bresney, our Springfield medical malpractice lawyers represent injured people and their families who have suffered harm as a result of a doctor’s failure to properly diagnose an illness or condition.

With many forms of cancer, a proper, timely diagnosis can be the difference between a full recovery and an unsuccessful treatment process. If the doctors in an emergency room are negligent in performing tests, they may provide the wrong diagnosis – missing signs of heart attack or stroke. Sometimes the proper diagnosis is truly a matter of life or death. If a medical professional has been negligent in handling your care, or the care of someone you love, that doctor should be held accountable.

How Much Will My Case Cost?

We provide all legal representation on a contingency fee basis; you do not pay attorney fees until your attorney recovers a verdict or settlement for you. Additionally, our firm will advance all necessary costs associated with your case. This includes filing fees, fees for expert witnesses, fees for medical records, postage, copy charges and deposition fees. Once we obtain compensation for you, these costs will be deducted from your recovery.
