New Orleans Misdiagnosis Lawyer

Hold Medical Professionals Accountable for Negligence

The most crucial part of treating a medical condition is the diagnosis. Doctors and nurses go through years of extensive training in order to be able to recognize symptoms and detect illnesses. Treatment plans are specifically established according to a diagnosis, which means that incorrect or missed diagnoses can be detrimental to the care and well-being of patients. If your doctor was negligent in the proper diagnosis of your condition, you have the right to take action.

Do I have a misdiagnosis case?

In order to determine whether or not you have a valid medical malpractice case on the basis of misdiagnosis, it must be proven that your doctor or nurse violated the standard of care. If a competent doctor would have made the correct diagnosis under the same circumstances, and if your doctor’s failure to do so resulted in your worsening conditions, you may be able to pursue compensation.

Common examples of misdiagnosis include:

  • The diagnosis was incorrect
  • An illness or condition was missed
  • The diagnosis was made after an unnecessary delay
  • Complications that could affect condition were missed
  • Second, related diseases were missed
  • Second, unrelated diseases were missed

If we believe that you have a valid claim, we will work with medical experts to analyze the doctor’s actions and build an aggressive case on your behalf. We believe that medical practitioners should be held to a high standard of professionalism and will do everything in our power to hold them accountable. You should not have to suffer at the hands of an incompetent doctor, and our team is ready to fight for you.
