Misdiagnosis

Medical Malpractice Law

 

When doctors or medical professionals misdiagnose you with a disease, a form of cancer, or incorrectly clear you, that failure can be life altering, emotionally tasking, and create death risks.

If you, a family member, or a loved one has experienced a misdiagnosis and endured the repercussions that accompany it, you need to contact an attorney. As misdiagnosis attorneys in Memphis, the Chiozza Law Firm proudly serves its clients and works to ensure all its clients are treated with care and compassion during this grueling time.

Misdiagnosed Cancer

A cancer misdiagnosis could waste precious, critical months of treatment. If you have been misdiagnosed, the cancer spreads to other parts of your body and could become incurable – all of which could have been treated.

Improper tissue and blood sampling, combined with inaccurate reading of hospital lab results, lead to most cancer misdiagnosis errors. A misread mammogram or other screening tests may also  lead to a significant delay in the diagnosis of cancer.

Some hospitals or doctors may attempt to convince you these things happen in the course of medical care and cannot be prevented. Don’t believe this. Some of these actions most certainly can be avoided, and The Chiozza Law Firm investigates to see if their actions were within the normal standard of care. Remember, the Tennessee Statute of Limitations for a Plaintiff is short, meaning you could lose your right to a misdiagnosis claim if you do not address the concern immediately.

Due to the complexity of medical malpractice claims and the knowledge needed to assist you during this situation, you should contact an attorney at The Chiozza Law Firm for a free confidential case evaluation.

Delayed Diagnosis

 

Doctors and medical professionals have a responsibility to discover and pinpoint a patient’s issues and symptoms to reach a proper diagnosis. When these professionals fail to do that, they pose serious, consequential risks to the patient and their family.

  • Delayed diagnoses can include the following:
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Genetic disorders
  • Epilepsy
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Lymph node inflammation
  • Asthma

If you received a misdiagnosis from a doctor or medical professional, you need to contact an attorney immediately. Despite what you may read or hear about delayed diagnoses, this mistake is life changing. 

These cases can be complicated. Because of this, we encourage you to contact The Chiozza Law Firm. We’ll set up a free consultation and discover what we can do to help you through this process.
