Riverside Medical Misdiagnosis Lawyer

About Misdiagnosis

Did a medical misdiagnosis cause you or a family member injury? Did you lose a loved one because a doctor misdiagnosed a deadly medical condition? A Riverside medical misdiagnosis lawyer at our law firm may be able to help you take the legal action that is your right to seek justice and financial compensation for your injuries.

Part of the medical care that a doctor should provide is the accurate diagnosis of a medical condition. Although there are some extenuating circumstances that would prevent a doctor from diagnosing an extremely rare medical condition, in general a doctor should provide the standard level of care and attention to a patient in determining what illness or injury the patient is suffering from. When this does not occur and a doctor misdiagnoses a patient, this may be grounds for a Riverside medical malpractice claim if the patient suffers injury or harm as a result.

Why Does a Misdiagnosis Occur?

There are literally thousands of different illnesses or diseases from which a person may suffer. When a doctor evaluates a patient to determine what condition he or she is experiencing, it may be difficult to determine the exact cause. A doctor may be likely to assign the patient's symptoms to a common medical condition rather than take the time to perform additional test to see what is actually going on. Carelessness, an overworked doctor, a doctor who is tired and misses something, or inexperience are all potential factors that will lead to misdiagnosis. It is in these matters that it is of the utmost importance to involve a competent lawyer.

With our experience in medical malpractice in general and in handling cases involving the misdiagnosis of a medical condition, our firm can offer you the help you need. Contact a Riverside medical malpractice attorney today!
