MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASES
It is not uncommon for some firms to be wary of certain aspects of personal injury. Essentially, a medical malpractice case requires an attorney to think like a doctor. Our experience in this field, and our exposure to trusted experts, allows us to carefully examine a patient history through doctor’s notes, medical histories, medicines prescribed, diagnostic tests and X-ray/MRI results

Medical malpractice can ultimately refer to any number of situations, including:
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Prescription errors
- Defective medical equipment
- Improperly managing recovery periods
- Chiropractic malpractice
One key category of medical malpractice litigation is misdiagnosis. When a medical care provider causes undue harm to a patient due to a wrong or missed diagnosis, that patient needs an experienced misdiagnosis personal injury lawyer to walk them through common pitfalls. It is fair for any patient to presume that their doctor or other medical care provider takes every precaution necessary to offer an accurate diagnosis.
The dangers of a misdiagnosis are many. Whether the wrong treatment plan causes direct harm to the patient or simply delays the appropriate treatment, misdiagnosis can be costly. Liable parties should be held accountable for damages. Depending on the condition in question, a misdiagnosis could lead to serious injury or even death.
COMMONLY MISDIAGNOSED CONDITIONS
With over 90 years of combined experience, Neufeld, Kleinberg, & Pinkiert personal injury lawyers are uniquely equipped to represent you. Over the years we have seen a number of misdiagnosis cases surrounding conditions such as:
- Aortic dissection
- Breast cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Heart attack
- Lung cancer
- Malignant tumor (diagnosed as benign)
- Misread mammograms
- Post surgery bleeding
- Prostate cancer
- Pulmonary embolism
- Testicular cancer
FAILURE TO DIAGNOSIS AND DELAYED DIAGNOSIS
No matter the condition, failure to diagnose and delayed diagnosis can be detrimental to a patient. When those delays and failures have to do with a cancer diagnosis, the mistakes can be deadly. The earlier and more accurately cancer is detected, the better the chances are for successful treatment.
Common Reasons For Diagnosis Failures and Delays
When doctors and nurses do not spend enough time with a patient and fail to ask the right questions, a delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose could occur. Here are just a few of the reasons we have seen this take place.
- Patient’s full medical history was not developed
- Medical personnel did not pay close enough attention to the patient’s symptoms and complaints
- Medical history was given but key details were not properly evaluated
- Failed to order necessary diagnostics tests
- Failed to order the right tests
- Correct tests ordered but tests improperly performed
- Wrong conclusions taken from test results
- Ignored abnormal results
