Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Advances in modern medicine have helped to increase the human life span, ward off disease, and treat conditions that were previously thought fatal. The foundation of any medical treatment is dependent on a proper and accurate diagnosis. Doctors must order the appropriate tests, which must be performed correctly and interpreted correctly.
It is an unfortunate reality that in many instances, doctors and physicians act negligently and cause serious injuries to innocent victims. Something as simple as a delayed diagnosis can result in a catastrophic injury or loss.

Doctors and medical providers are required to abide by a standard of care. When this standard of care is deviated due to a misdiagnosis, a failure to diagnose or a delayed diagnosis, it is the patient who suffers. Studies have shown that 42 percent of patients feel they have suffered from a medical error or a missed diagnosis at the hands of a doctor. And what is more astonishing is that the rate of misdiagnosis has not improved at all since the 1930s. The cost of medical tests, drugs and operations can unfortunately overshadow patient safety in terms of importance.
