Misdiagnosis Injuries in Portland
Pursuing Justice for Injured Patients in Oregon
If you have suffered greatly from a misdiagnosis on the part of a medical
professional, you do not have to simply accept the consequences-some of
which can be major, as you know. Perhaps you were told that you simply
had a headache when in fact you were suffering symptoms from a concussion.
You later suffered from those symptoms over a long period of time, racking
up huge medical bills and putting your life in peril.
At Angel Law, P.C., our personal injury team is familiar with local, state,
and federal laws governing diagnoses done by a medical professional, and
we will work to help you achieve justice if you have been the victim of
a misdiagnosis in a Portland-area medical facility. If you suspect that
you have been affected by a misdiagnosis, do not wait to work with a legal
professional. Let a
malpractice attorney help you determine if you have a case.
What Is Considered Misdiagnosis?
Doctors do their best to diagnosis a patient's condition, but they
do make mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes can simply be a result of human
fallibility; other times, however, they can result from a doctor being
overly tired due to long hours at work, a desire to receive maximum compensation
from a patient, or even a desire to test out a new technique or medicine
(for which the physician might receive compensation).
Some common examples of negligent misdiagnosis include:
- Failure to identify signs of cancer
- Opting to skip tests that could knowingly prevent a condition
- Delaying a test or procedure that could have identified an illness or issue
- Incorrectly reading or running a diagnostic test
Let Angel Law, P.C. determine if there was more than human error involved
in your misdiagnosis. We are not on a witch hunt for medical professionals,
but we are committed to justice for our clients, and we will fight to
get the compensation that they deserve. Our Portland malpractice lawyer
has gained a reputation for our personalized care for clients, many of
whom say that we treat them like a friend.
