Houston Malpractice Attorneys for Failure to Diagnose Cases
Failure to Diagnose an Illness Is a Serious but Common Error — Our Lawyers Will Hold Your Doctor Accountable
Receiving a diagnosis of a serious or terminal illness is very hard to take. Harder still, when you find out that your doctor should have caught this disease early on, when it was still treatable or when the treatment would have been significantly less invasive and expensive. Doctors miss important indicators of diseases all the time, but cover these mistakes up by pretending the discovery is new. If you are a victim of a doctor’s failure to diagnose your disease, our lawyers will expose his or her error.

When you come into our office, you will find a friendly, welcoming environment. All of our staff get to know you and your situation.

Finding the Place the Error in Diagnosis Occurred
Doctors order tests, review symptoms and do research to determine what may be affecting you. If they fail to do the proper tests or if they misinterpret the results, your life may be on the line. The most common mistake occurs in communication between physicians or between physicians and medical technicians. A radiologist may not tell your general practitioner about an important mass. A lab technician may not note the levels of a certain indicator in your blood test as significant.
The Most Common Failure to Diagnose Errors Include:
- Failure to order any tests
- Failure to act on a patient’s complaints
- Failure to screen regularly for certain conditions — especially in high-risk patients
- Failure to recognize symptoms
- Treating the wrong disease
- Delaying referral to a specialist
Our in-depth medical knowledge and experience in seeing these errors for what they are allow us to find them quickly and hold your doctor accountable for his or her mistake. Our medical malpractice law firm has overcome the many excuses the medical establishment uses to cover up these deadly errors. By exposing them and pursuing maximum compensation for you, we hope to prevent the same harm to patients in the future.
