Failure to Diagnose Disease or Injury

Failure to Diagnose Disease or Injury

Some of the most devastating medical outcomes people face occur due to diagnostic failures at various levels of the health care system. A primary care physician may miss symptoms and indications of cancer, for example, or emergency room personnel may dismiss a patient without performing tests that could expose a subdural hematoma or other brain injury.

If a failure to diagnose disease or injury has altered your life in serious ways — impacting your own prognosis or that of a family member — it may be critical to explain your perspective on what happened to a qualified Louisiana medical malpractice attorney. We encourage you to turn to us at Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards, L.L.C., in Lafayette.
