Misdiagnosis / Failure to Diagnose Lawyers Marlton, NJ

New Jersey Medical Malpractice Lawyers Protect Victims Injured in “Failure to Diagnose” Cases in Gloucester County, Camden County, and Across South Jersey

When you are injured or sick, you choose a doctor to help you and you rely on their years of training in and practicing of a particular area of medicine. You want them to examine you, perform necessary diagnostic tests and figure out what’s wrong with you. When they fail to diagnose a serious condition, such as heart attack, stroke, cancer or pneumonia, the results can be disastrous.

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a healthcare professional’s failure to diagnose an illness or other medical condition, you may not find out until it’s too late. As a result, your options for treatment could be reduced or even nonexistent. In the interim, you’ve been forced to suffer in pain unnecessarily. Worse, the condition may have worsened to the point where a doctor’s negligence failing to diagnose caused wrongful death.

At The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C., we’ve helped countless victims of medical malpractice in South Jersey, including Haddonfield, Cherry Hill and Mt. Laurel, NJ, recover millions of dollars in damages after doctors failed to diagnose conditions and illnesses that should have been easily identified and treated early enough to make a difference. We will fight tirelessly for your family in an effort to recover the significant compensation you deserve.

How Common Is Failure to Diagnose Malpractice in New Jersey?

Failing to diagnose a patient’s condition is far more common than you might think, whether it’s a misread x-ray or MRI, lab work that was performed incorrectly and led to a wrong diagnosis, or a doctor’s negligence in noticing signs and subsequently failing to order the proper diagnostic tests.

“Failure to diagnose” is when a doctor fails to see the connection between your symptoms and a medical condition, therefore not ordering any type of treatment. Beyond completely failing to diagnose an illness, it may be medical malpractice if the doctor misdiagnoses your condition (treating you for a condition you don’t have) or makes a delayed diagnosis (the condition is eventually discovered, but it’s either too late for treatment or earlier diagnosis and treatment would have made a considerable difference in your prognosis).

While it’s unacceptable for a doctor to fail to diagnose any illness, some conditions that go undiagnosed can advance quickly. Depending on the condition, treatment options may dwindle or become nonexistent the further a disease worsens.

On the other hand, correct diagnosis and treatment can make all the difference in patient outcome when it comes to:

Some conditions are less life-threatening and tend to advance more slowly. Failure to diagnose may make less of a difference in the short-term, but all of these illnesses have serious symptoms that, left undiagnosed and untreated, can be deadly. These types of conditions include: depression, fibromyalgia, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, , severe infections such as toxoplasmosis, , thyroid disorders, , and celiac disease.

Experienced Attorneys Fight for Maximum Compensation for Medical Malpractice Clients in Camden, New Jersey

When you have a condition or illness that is not diagnosed at all, it stands to reason that you will not get the appropriate medical treatment or care needed to heal you. The result of a ‘failure to diagnose’ medical malpractice situation can mean long-term suffering and even wrongful death.

The experienced medical malpractice lawyers at The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C. understand the nuances of these types of cases. We will conduct a full investigation of the doctor’s actions by reviewing medical records and interviewing all witnesses, including nurses and other healthcare staff. If your doctor was rushed and didn’t spend adequate time to evaluate you and ask about your complete medical history or was interrupted during your examination, the healthcare staff won’t be aware of your risk factors for certain conditions. Further, if your physician orders the wrong tests or misreads or misinterprets test results the final diagnosis will be flawed. Sometimes, a doctor just fails to recognize the symptoms of a disease or condition or diagnoses too quickly connecting your symptom to a less serious disease and doesn’t order any diagnostic scans, so he will have no idea what the real diagnosis should be.
