Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis?
Orlando Medical Malpractice Lawyers Explain Options for Victims
Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis are not mistakes that can be easily forgiven, if they can be forgiven at all. Nothing can make up for going through the agony of saying goodbye to your loved ones, or attempting every treatment available no matter how painful, dangerous or expensive, because you were mistakenly told you had a deadly disease. Likewise, failure to diagnose cancer or other diseases and delayed diagnosis can lead to people not receiving the treatment they need to survive a fatal disease or being forced to live with a life-altering condition that could have been prevented.

How Medical Malpractice Lawyers Prove Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis
Generally, people do not expect to find themselves suffering because of medical care and often have no idea what to do following a medical malpractice-related injury. In fact, in many cases, victims and their families do not even know that their injury or the death of a loved one was the result of medical negligence. This fact alone makes proving misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis difficult.
Experienced medical malpractice attorneys spend their careers helping the victims of medical negligence. They witness firsthand the pain and suffering victims and their relatives endure as a result of misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cancer or other diseases. Therefore, a misdiagnosis attorney understands both how to recognize the signs of medical negligence and how desperately victims and their families need the relief and security for their future. More importantly, having guided others through similar circumstances in the past, medical malpractice lawyers know how to prove misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis, including:
- Establishing that a healthcare facility-patient relationship clearly existed
- Uncovering, gathering and presenting evidence that the healthcare facility’s treatment or lack thereof was negligent
- Showing that the healthcare facility’s negligence led to a patient’s unnecessary pain, injury, suffering or wrongful death
