Failure to Diagnose

People go to medical professionals when they do not feel well, with the belief that a diagnosis will be made and their problem will be properly treated. When a doctor fails to perform the appropriate tests or provide the appropriate treatment, the medical condition may get progressively worse to the point where it becomes untreatable or cause additional injury. At the law firm of Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, our Massachusetts medical malpractice lawyers fight to hold doctors accountable for their negligent acts. We work hard to get injured victims and their family members the compensation they need to move forward with their lives.

We Handle All Types of Misdiagnosis Cases

Our Boston personal injury lawyers have the experience necessary to handle cases involving nearly any type of medical condition that was made worse by a misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose, including:

  • Heart attacks
  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Strokes
  • Meningitis
  • MRSA infections

A misdiagnosis may occur because a doctor failed to order the proper test or failed to read test results properly. We will work closely with medical experts to determine what exactly went wrong and who should be held liable.

Helping Family Members Who Have Lost Loved Ones

In some cases, a misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose will cause a medical problem to advance to the point where treatment is no longer an option. Unfortunately, these cases almost always end in death. The attorneys at Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry can help surviving family members pursue a wrongful death claim. We understand that no amount of compensation can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, we can send a message that negligent actions will not be tolerated.
