You spend nine anxious months doing everything you can to ensure that your baby or babies When you step into a hospital or clinic, you are trusting the healthcare professionals who work there to investigate your symptoms, diagnose you accordingly, and help you find a path to healing. All too often, despite a patient presenting with a deadly illness or emergency condition, a doctor improperly diagnoses the problem as something less than serious. Not only can this misdiagnosis cause life-changing injuries, it can result in death. If you or your loved one was the victim of a diagnostic error at the hands of a negligent healthcare professional, Joe Stampone and his team of winning attorneys are ready to stand and fight for you. 


What is an Example of a Diagnosis Error or Misdiagnosis?

The results of a misdiagnosis come in a variety of different forms, and you need a team at your side that understands the nuances of these cases to ensure you get the compensation you and your family deserve. In general, this type of medical malpractice presents itself in three categories:

  • Delayed Diagnosis: In these cases, while a correct diagnosis was made in the end, the delay in diagnosis causes devastating damage to the patient and their family. An example of a delayed diagnosis case is a cancer patient who lost precious time with their family, or even the chance to cure the disease, because of a doctor’s negligence.
  • Failure to Diagnose: A failure to diagnose means that the patient never received the correct diagnosis, and it resulted in life-changing injuries or death. A failure of diagnosis can lead to a heart attack, infection, brain damage, stroke, or worse—all of which could have been prevented or treated had the doctor made the correct diagnosis in a timely manner.
  • Misdiagnosis: Imagine coming into a hospital for pain in your chest and being diagnosed with heartburn instead of esophageal cancer. Sadly, we represent cases like this all the time where a misdiagnosis leads to the worsening of a condition and even death. We’ve also helped families whose misdiagnosis pushed them into a surgery, chemotherapy, or other treatment they never needed.
