Injuries Resulting from Failure to Diagnose

Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose occurs when a medical professional fails to properly understand and diagnose a patient’s condition. This can result in the doctor prescribing improper treatments, such as medications or surgeries, which do not remedy the issue or even cause harm to the patient. If you have been injured due to a misdiagnosis or failure to properly diagnose your medical condition, our experienced firm can represent you to seek the compensation you deserve. We can investigate your incident and seek to prove that a doctor-patient relationship existed, that the doctor’s actions were negligent and that you suffered harm due to that negligence in order to seek compensation in court.

Failure to Diagnose Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

Subarachnoid hemorrhage is bleeding in the subarachnoid space, or the space between the brain and the tissues that surround it. Failure to misdiagnose subarachnoid hemorrhage can lead to severe brain damage, which is why it is important for doctors to properly identify the symptoms and prescribe treatments to help avoid serious brain trauma. Physical symptoms like stiffness of the neck, decreased vision, and severe headaches can alert doctors to this condition, and CT and MRI scans, transcranial ultrasounds, and cerebral angiographies can provide further evidence for the proper diagnosis of this hemorrhage.

Failure to Diagnose Cauda Equina Syndrome

Failure to diagnose cauda equina syndrome can lead to serious injuries, including paralysis, neurological problems, and decreased control of the bladder and bowels. Cauda equina syndrome is a compression or inflammation of the nerves at the end of the spinal cord that control movement of the pelvis and lower limbs, as well as bladder and bowel functions. Symptoms for this syndrome include weakness and numbness in the legs and feet, lower back pain, incontinence, and stabbing pains in the lower limbs. Physicians have a responsibility to provide the diagnosis and treatment you need, and A Good Law Firm can use a thorough knowledge of the legal system to help you seek the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
