Delivering healthcare services requires knowledge of many issues, many of them complicated. But it is the responsibility of doctors and hospitals to remain abreast of procedures and tests that will accurately diagnose patients who are ill or injured. In unfortunate (and often preventable circumstances), a wrong diagnosis can result in serious injury or even the death of a patient. At Clark & Mitchell P.C.., our law firm is committed to helping our clients recover the compensation they need and deserve after suffering from the effects of misdiagnosis.

Standards of care: The duty of doctors, medical professionals, and hospitals
When an individual seeks medical attention, they rely on the knowledge and expertise of doctors and nurses to properly diagnose and treat their condition. However, medical professionals can make mistakes and may misdiagnose an illness or even diagnose an individual that doesn't have a medical ailment at all. False positives, delayed diagnosis, or mistreatment of a disease or illness can result in serious consequences for patients or their families.
Identifying symptoms of injury or illness
Some conditions have vague symptoms that make them difficult to diagnose. Wrong diagnosis can often be prevented if health care professionals exercise due care in diagnosing patients with particular conditions. If you or someone you love has recently been injured by a misdiagnosis, it is important to consult with an experienced legal team as soon as possible.
We are experienced in handling misdiagnosis in cases involving:
- Bacterial meningitis
- Heart attack
- Pulmonary embolism
- Emergency room error
