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
