Clifton Misdiagnosis Attorney

Dedicated Legal Representation in New Jersey

Misdiagnosis can result in the failure to properly treat an illness, and cause a rapid deterioration in a patient's health. It is expected that medical professionals will thoroughly evaluate a patient's condition, and conduct any tests that are needed to ensure the right diagnosis. When a health condition isn't diagnosed or incorrectly diagnosed, it can have grave consequences. Misdiagnosis is a form of medical malpractice, and often occurs in cases involving:

  • Various types of cancer
  • Heart attack
  • Strokes
  • Appendicitis
  • Bacterial meningitis

Patients that have been misdiagnosed may be given the wrong medication, or no medication at all to treat their illness. A condition that isn't diagnosed correctly can also prevent a person from receiving critical medical procedures needed for their recovery. In severe cases, a misdiagnosis can even lead to death. A Clifton personal injury lawyer should be contacted if you or a loved one's illness or injury was misdiagnosed. You may be entitled to compensation for hospital expenses, medical bills, rehabilitation, pain, suffering, emotional trauma and lost income. A legal professional can thoroughly investigate the treatment you received and determine if you are eligible to file a claim for damages.
