Charlotte Misdiagnosis Lawyers
When Misdiagnosis, Failure to Diagnose & Delayed Diagnosis Cause Undue Harm
Many illnesses are unavoidable. However, when a medical condition is misdiagnosed, or the correct diagnosis and treatment are delayed, the results can be tragic. With over decades of experience helping medical malpractice victims, Charles G. Monnett III & Associates know what it takes to hold doctors responsible for a missed or delayed diagnosis.
While many plaintiffs' attorneys may claim they have the litigation experience to handle medical malpractice lawsuits, very few actually spend a significant part of their practice taking on medical providers in court. The attorneys at our firm have the knowledge, skill and experience to litigate these complex cases. We have the negotiation and trial skills, as well as the resources needed to invest in the case. We represent medical malpractice victims and their families in lawsuits aimed at recovering rightful compensation for the family and holding negligent medical professionals accountable.
The proper diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions and illnesses requires doctors and other medical professionals to use their training and experience to arrive at a diagnosis and treatment plan in accordance with the standards of practice applicable to them, and to do so in timely fashion. Unfortunately, medical errors persist at an alarming rate, and when one happens the results can be devastating.
Some of the most common misdiagnoses involve the misdiagnosis of:
- Heart attack
- Injuries to other organs following surgery
Why You Need an Attorney
Missed and delayed diagnosis claims are very complex; it is not enough to simply show that a doctor or another medical professional did not diagnose your condition. Instead, you will need to show that the medical provider failed to comply with the standard of care and the missed or delayed diagnosis more likely than not changed the outcome. It takes careful review and understanding of your medical care, and supporting testimony from qualified medical doctors willing to serve as experts, in order to bring a medical malpractice claim. There are special statutes and rules of evidence and procedure that apply to medical malpractice law suits that an experienced attorney can guide your through.
