Widow Files Lawsuit For Failure To Diagnose Addisonian Crisis
On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Lawyers in Texas for Failure to Diagnose Lawsuit on Tuesday, August 11, 2015.
Expecting medical professionals to provide care of an acceptable standard is only natural. Residents in Texas, as in other states, are often disillusioned by physicians who fail to treat their medical problems — or those of their loved ones — in a manner that will improve health or resolve medical issues. When there is a failure to diagnose a life-threatening condition, an untimely death can be the result.
A group of doctors and two medical facilities in another state are facing a lawsuit that was brought by a widow, as an individual, and on behalf of her deceased husband and their children. The plaintiff alleges the defendants caused her husband’s death through their breaching of the standard of care. The alleged medical misconduct took place after her husband was diagnosed with kidney stones at the medical facility of one of the defendants. During the diagnostic process, it was apparently found that he had an adrenal tumor on his right kidney.
The complaint states that the patient was then transferred to the facility of the other defendant where an adrenalectomy procedure was performed to remove the right adrenal gland. The court documents show that the patient was discharged from the medical facility within three days and passed away only five days later. The plaintiff claims that her husband went into acute adrenal failure, and alleges the doctors’ failure to diagnose this as an Addisonian crisis. Furthermore, she claims this condition might have caused his abnormal heart rate and blood pressure, and ultimately, his death.
Lawsuits such as this one may be tricky to navigate, and although it is the right of everybody to pursue compensation for medical and other documented financial losses, the support and guidance of a legal representative may prove invaluable. Contact the medical mistake attorneys at Hastings Law Firm Houston Texas to get help. Obtaining substantiating evidence of failure to diagnose and presenting it in court may be a difficult task to manage successfully. An experienced medical malpractice attorney will likely have the knowledge and resources to gather the relevant information to form the basis of a medical malpractice claim in a Texas civil court.
