Physician Improper Diagnosis
The diagnostic exams, blood tests, imaging, and other steps taken by a physician when confronted with an ill or injured patient are among the most important actions taken in the course of treatment for one very simple reason: it is impossible to adequately and effectively treat or manage an adverse health condition in the absence of a proper and accurate diagnosis. Without such a diagnosis, any decisions made regarding treatment are made without the necessary information and this can lead a patient down a dangerous path that spirals far away from improved health.
As a consequence of an improper diagnosis, you may have endured needless pain and suffering in addition to oppressive and unnecessary medical expenses incurred by your physician’s mistakes. Let us help you seek the financial compensation that you deserve.

Worse Comes to Worst
Part of the reason that an improper diagnosis is so problematic is that it leaves a patient fully subject to a physician’s mistakes in a situation where the issue could have been resolved or its impact lessened if a correct diagnosis had been reached. This is most readily apparent in cases of severe illness, including:
- Cancerous tumors
- Heart disease and other heart-related ailments which can precipitate a heart attack
- Blood-flow problems within the brain may result in brain damage, stroke, or other life-threatening episodes
- Post-surgical infections
