The Dangers Of Misdiagnosis Errors

Of the various types of medical malpractice, perhaps the most tragic are those that involve misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose life-threatening conditions. When a doctor or medical provider unreasonably fails to notice the signs of such a condition, opportunities to treat the condition are lost. The result can be an unnecessary and significant deterioration in the patient's condition or loss of life.

At the firm of Duffield, Lovejoy & Boggs, Attorneys at Law, we believe that people who have been harmed by negligence deserve answers and justice. We are strong advocates for people who have suffered harm due to:

  • Misdiagnosis of serious medical conditions
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Failure to diagnose heart attacks and heart conditions
  • Premature discharge from emergency rooms
  • Other types of medical negligence
